20 min • 16m
Atos HQ Head Black Belt Andre Galvao teaches a Different Variations and Transitions From Modified X Guard With Variations to Back Take and Outside Ashi Hell Hook Attack (The Viper Heel Hook), during the no-gi advanced class on 03/25/2021.
Modification of the Classic X-guard is an amazing type of guard/option, where in sweeps and submissions abound. However, making the transition from single leg X-guard to a more traditional X can be tough.
The X-Guard is crazy effective compared to all others (Specially No-Gi). It's a simple open guard that people usually discover at white/blue belt. This guard is effective, easy to work from and very hard to pass, not only that you can definitely slow down the fight (control) while playing guard. It gives you great options to attack Subs - specially heel hooks and leg entanglements.
