De La Riva Shin Sweep

Posted Monday, March 10, 2014

This sexy sweep was taught to me by my instructor, Lucas Lepri. I loved this sweep a little too much and carried it with me through the ranks. This sweep is available from De la Riva guard when your opponent attempts to pass your guard. They push your foot down and step over. You then intercept their leg with an underhook, switch your DLR hook to a Reverse DLR hook and deliver the sweep. You then pass the guard with a single under pass.

Lucas Lepri has put me on to the “TOTAL” game. He is complete EVERYWHERE. Can pass a mean guard, sweep a base god, and submit a sabretooth, double caralho!!
