Enter the Pit

the pit sweep

I have mentioned my affinity for the Flower Sweep before, and as a result I have discovered what I call the Pit. It is a position you get into after a failed Flower, that gives you more sweeps and submissions to attack from. It can also be entered from pretty much any open guard situation […]
