Leandro Lo guard pass breakdown part 4

3.35 Leg drag/Toreando combo pass

The leg drag is a modern pass of the guard. Quite often you see leg drags trained by grabbing the bottom of the pants with both hands and dragging it across the hip. Lo tends to use a more Toreanado-influenced version of it. He doesn’t release his grips on the knees. In fact, it’s hard to know where the Toreando pass ends and the leg drag begins!

4.12 Armbar finish

Lo prefers to come up to a knee on belly position after getting side control. From here it’s a simple change to a near side armbar.



“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
Winston Churchill

Lo’s style of passing constantly puts Brian on the defence. If there’s one thing to take home from Lo’s guard passing style, then perhaps it’s this.
