BJJ Techniques: Back Takes from Stack Passing the Guard

Grappling Mastery: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & MMA Academy

Here are two Leg Reaping or “Scorpion” style back takes when passing the guard.  Most times when you are in the guard your focus is to pass or attack footlocks.  The Scorpion Leg Reap and Rolling Scorpion are two unorthodox back takes that give you an alternative to passing the guard.  You can skip the pass and go directly for the back and the submissions that it yields!  These are advanced techniques and require significant drilling to master the movements.  These back takes are a part of a much larger game and not for everyone.  Give them a try and let us know what you think.
