In this video Ricardo De la Riva shows us a sweep from the open guard. In jiu-jitsu you will find yourself often with your guard open. You will have to open your guard in BJJ in order to attack. Make sure to make the right grips on the opponents gi or you will not do the sweep the right way.

Demian Maia in this video takes the time to break down the triangle choke. I have found that the little adjustments made to the triangle choke has made the difference in me catching someone in the choke and not catching them. That is how jiu-jitsu goes though, the slightest movement can make or break you. Breaking the opponent down at the elbow in order to bring the arm across is important, how many time do we get stuck trying to get that arm across our body. Check out Saturday's post of Maia highlight reel at about 37 seconds he performs a nice triangle choke on his opponent. Maia takes on Dan Miller at UFC 109 this Saturday.
