Open guard techniques

Today, a short video from JT Torres (Lloyd Irvin black belt). He shows a high level arm drag from the open guard that leads to a couple sweep variations.

Although you are starting from a sitting position, both end up on the feet where you complete the sweep.

The sweeps actually are finished exactly like you would in wrestling, so here is one instance of where having a good wrestling base helps a lot!

Great technique, they make it look easy in the video, but trying that at a realistic speed against an opponent that want to hurt you won't be as easy. People don't appreciate how much skill it takes to master BJJ. ..why am I saying this? because I watched that video with my buddy who kept saying "I could do that, easy." lol
