Lapel Closed Guard Star Sweep 

Without the Lapel control, the star sweep can be a little hit or miss as you give up control. 

However, with the Lapel you keep control, and all your weight transfers through your opponent's shoulder. 

The Star Sweep from Lapel Closed Guard is what we’re going to work in this part of the plan. 

Here is the plan 


Micro Drill #1: Lapel Closed Guard Set Up ( 1 min ea) 


Technical Drill #1: Lapel Closed Guard Star Sweep (3 min ea) 


Specific Training #1: Lapel Closed Guard (reset if opponent escapes or you sweep or submit them, 3 min ea)
