Marcelo Garcia Sweep

The following video is a sweep demonstrated by one of the best grapplers of all time, Marcelo Garcia.

What is great about this technique is firstly, it is not very hard to master, and secondly, the opportunity to use it (or a variation of it which you should find out for yourself) nearly always crops up during ground grappling.

Weather it be passing your guard, trying for a submission or general scrambling, your opponent, most of the time, will provide you with an opportunity to hook one of his legs and if you can also control his upper body by hooking one or both of his arms as in the video you should be successful with this technique. Enjoy!
