The Weirdest Way to Open Guard – The Rolling Cartwheel


This is probably the weirdest way to open guard that I know of. You might watch this and think, “That will never work!”

But it does.

I have done this in competition against a BJJ Black Belt to open his guard en route to a heel hook victory. It is one of those moves I forgot about it, but I’m going to bring it back. 🙂

I can guarantee that 99.99% of people have never seen or felt this before, so you will definitely catch people by surprise. Plus, it can put you into a very powerful ankle lock and even a Boston crab submission. Definitely worth having in your back pocket.

Great old school technique! I’ve used this in tournaments…the “Bear Crawl” version work well also! Keep up the great content! OSS!
