15X Black Belt World Champion Atos HQ Head Black Belt Andre Galvao teaches the Torreando Pass and the Long Step Pass from De La Riva Guard, during the 6:15pm class on 11/11/2019.
The Legend of our sport Andre Galvao go over some ways that you can use this pass differently, but with the same result…getting the pass.
The Toreando Pass, meaning "bull fighter pass" uses a motion similar to how a matador would entice a bull with the red cape. This technique works beautifully in both gi and no gi, which adds to its value as a high percentage pass to a very high percentage of opponents reaction on giving up his back while you are attacking.
