In this video: a short snippet of a sparring session focusing on a sweep from the Half Guard Bottom.  The Top Player, Glenn Rivera, is attempting to score a Guard Pass from the standing position and has his grips.  The Bottom Player, Professor Michio Grubbs, has his grips.

A short scramble ensues to get the better grips and leverage for better position and then score. This is a fun grip battle with lots of strategy, small adjustments, and setups. Check it out!
