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.
Last week, JT Torres showed us a nice guard pass when someone wraps your arm from open guard. In this week’s Power Play, Alexey Cruz shows us the proper mechanics to the leg lasso. It is important that once you secure the position, you keep your knee open. If your opponent closes your knee then your offense will be nullified.
This month JT Torres showed us some very high percentage techniques. In his final week he teaches a guard pass that will leave your opponent struggling to escape. It is important to isolate your opponent’s legs. If you follow this outline you will be passing stronger and more effectively guaranteed!
