The Hooking Sweep

There are several sweeps and this is one of the few that is good for a real fight. You will see this technique in two different scenarios, one with GI and the other one without it.


Ryron and Rener Gracie From the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Torrance, CA demonstrate how to effectively apply a hook sweep from the open guard when the opponent is over you. This video is brought to you by the “Gracie Insider” the official newsletter for the Gracie Family.


In this segment, Marcelo Garcia shares a 2 on 1 hook sweep, along with a couple of variations for if you lose your controls on the arm. When grappling nogi, it is much easier to lose the grip controls so it’s important to practice this technique with the variations until it becomes second nature. Think of variation number one as a gift from your opponent, but be ready with variation two and three if you find they’re not in such a giving mood!
