The 1st of May is Labor Day, an international holiday honoring the day-to-day battle of the working man. Like so many other laborers, dedicated Jiu-Jitsu teachers (and journalists) deserve their due tribute too.

So how about making the most of the holiday to have fun and work on sharpening up your guard pass? We unearthed five videos on how to traverse your opponent’s guard, be you a seasoned gentle-art worker or a white belt trainee.
