Basic Jiu Jitsu Curriculum – Lesson 23c – The Scissor Sweep – Gas Pedal Variation

Gas Pedal Variation: Same as above but stomp the base knee.

Jiu Jitsu Drill: Practice the scissor sweep against progressive resistance. The sweeper should decide how much resistance they want. Start small and increase gradually. Remember, surprise is the most important factor in pulling off a successful sweep.

Closing Statement: The scissor sweep is tried and true. It is a great sweep. Shrimp out wide to get the hips out to add power to your sweep so you can upgrade from the bottom guard position to the superior mount position.
