Controlled Pass to Speed Pass

I am going to be reprinting some old classic entries from my previous blog called The Angry Grappler. It will chronicle the evolution in my understanding of martial arts.

With certain passes that are more speed passes, or dancing type passes it's much quicker to pass but much harder to keep the bottom man from getting to their knees.

You look at Marcello, when he passes, he doesn't pass quickly. He takes his time and passes slow but once he passes he's in a controlling position and the bottom man never recovers.

He gets his grips and the pass is a pressure pass, low, shutting down their hips, turning his head, getting the grips on their torso.

Which for me is hard on bigger guys. I am quite adept at passing while standing which make it easier but I have to pass their guard 3 times before I can control them.

Which then ultimately its actually easier to pass low just once and control them.
