How to Pass the de la Riva Guard

Andrew Raynor

The de la Riva guard is one of the trickiest guards to deal with in jiu jitsu. It is an aggressive and technical position that offers many attacking options and can allow the guard player to quickly create an angle on the player trying to pass.

This video which was featured on This Week in BJJ combines several advanced concepts and the powerful ‘Knee Slice’ / ‘Knee Cut’ technique that will return the advantage to the top player and facilitate the guard pass.
