Toreando and smash pass
These are two passes that are pretty basic but often misunderstood. The details are easy for a novice to pass up and because of that, they are done incorrectly.
One thing to note is that for the Toreando pass, the bottom man's hips are pinned in place using tension created from an underhook and a pants grip.
For the smash pass, the hips are held in place using the free arm and the top man's hips.
Practice these for a better top game and better overall BJJ.
