Note** The beginning of this video I talk about teaching and the difficulties of being an instructor. I also talk about a good training partner and how this technique fits into the larger picture of hand placement. If you do not want to hear about the teaching process and this aspect of the technique then you should fast forward to the technique demonstration.
In this video I show a version of the pocket sweep from the Half Guard. This is by far my highest percentage sweep and I use it, and it's variations as the basis of my Half Guard game.
Hand placement is going to be important as well as arching to clear the arm. This is a peek at part of the series where I show how to get the arm across from a very specific location. There were other lessons that fill in the holes when you can't get ahold of the hand like it is shown in this video.
