Williams Guard Defences Countering the Set Over   

Williams Guard Defences

Countering the Set Over 

The final way your opponent will try to defend the Williams Guard is by stepping or jumping over your body. 
This is the reason Eddie Bravo took the Williams Guard aka London out of his system. However, this defence can be easily countered with a single leg. 
What's even better is, providing you keep the position tight, your partner's movement sets up the position for you. 
All you need to do is switch your grip at the right time. 

Let's get into the plan 

Speed Drill #1: Williams Guard Side to Switch (2 min ea) 

Technical Drill #1: Countering the Set Over (3 min ea) 

Specific Training #1: Single Leg on knees (reset when you sweep or lose position, 3 min ea)

Specific Training #2: Williams Guard (reset when you sweep, submit, or lose position, 3 min ea) 

Practice getting to Williams Guard and fighting from there
