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.

To become the best, we must continuously test ourselves. We measure our performance, evaluate our faults, accept criticism and then work on improving ourselves before starting all over again.
