The lasso guard is very effective and it provides options for sweeps as you can see in our previous blog post.
But the beauty of Jiu Jitsu is that there's multiple ways to get the job done. On this sweep variation we observe the same setup as in the previous video, but this time instead of reaching the far hip with our right leg, we keep shifting the angle of our hips until we are facing away from our opponent, at which point we kick down with our left leg as if attacking an omoplata.
The likely conclusion is our opponent shifting their body over us to avoid the omoplata, at which point we can sit up and stay in control as our left leg is still controlling their shoulder and arm.
