Understanding and executing sweeps can be a tricky thing in the beginning...and well after, too. These are possibly the most important sweeps to learn early on, partly because the remain useful and high-percentage, and partly because the are rich in principles that govern all sweeping techniques.

There are multiple variations of these, and hundreds of sweeps from various guards. I focus in this video on these closed guard sweeps only:

1. Elevator Sweep

2. Hip Bump Sweep

3. Scissor Sweep

4. Pendulum Sweep

These are great sweeps by themselves or when combined with each other, other sweeps or certain complementary submissions.
