This week he combines the sweep, triangle and hip bump sweep all into one. This series is very high percentage and once mastered it will become a deadly part of your arsenal.

The leg lasso can be a real pain to deal with, especially with a strong, long legged opponent. This week, we welcome Jonathan “JT” Torres from team Lloyd Irvin. JT does a phenomenal job of executing a high percentage pass, leg dragging and passing his opponents guard.
