With over 30 years of Jiu-Jitsu under his belt, Professor Marcio Simas is one of our more than 250 GMAs spread around the world. Living in the USA for the last ten years, the sixth-degree black belt teaches at Gracie Barra Orlando,
Florida and was a student of the legendary Rolls Graice, not to mention having trained and helped Rickson Gracie and Carlos Gracie Jr.
Here Simas teaches how to safely pass butterfly-guard. The trick is to neutralize the underhook and grab the opponent’s collar before taking a firm grip on the enemy leg. Next it’s just a question of passing to the side you have locked down.
