As Master Liborio always says, “A true martial artist never stops learning.”

Master Bruno “Brunim” Bastos shows how to sweep your opponent when they won’t let you grab their wrist for the basic overhook sweep.
Junior Fernandes shows how to take the back when you have the underhook on your opponent from half guard. This is done by feeding the opposite lapel and escaping your head to go right to the back.
