Ryan Hall vs Augusto “Tanquinho” Mendes Abu Dhabi Pro 2011
In this segment, Augusto ‘Tanquinho’ Mendes shares the technique he’s been using lately in competition to defeat the 50/50 guard. It’s really important to keep your trapped leg straight so that you keep your opponent from getting underneath you. Once you have a good base and the trapped leg is straight you can stand to break the legs open and then work the pass. There is a lot of subtle movements in this technique so work it with your training partner for a while in drilling before trying it live.
