This month at 10th Planet Van Nuys we have been working on guard passing. Guard Passing is a huge part of the game that a lot of people don’t take the proper time to practice! In the video below FFA Head Coach Marcos Avellan shows a great guard pass that he has dubbed the Avellan pass. I really like this pass due to its simplicity and quickness. d The key to hitting this pass successfully has to be getting the underhook before you slide through. Without a good underhook when you slide you are giving your opponent an opening to counter your pass. If you would like to try this pass out and learn a variation of it come down to the San Fernando Valley’s best no gi jiu jitsu gym 10th Planet Van Nuys!
