A lot of people like working a seated guard, especially with the rise of the leg lock game and submission only tournaments. I enjoy working against it, because it makes setting up a lot of submissions and passes much easier for me.
The Circle Pass is just a simple way of circling around the seated guard and getting to a knee on belly on back mount. The key is learning how to circle properly. It requires proper transfer of weight and not just side stepping slowly around.
This is a step 1 of a multi-step guard pass series. Make sure you join FFAcoach.com to watch the whole sequence. 🙂
