If you have ever been caught in spider guard you already know that it can be difficult to pass. In this video Master Rafael “Formiga” Barbosa shows a very simple and effective way to pass the spider guard! The first thing you need to do is establish your grips. You should grip the gi pants on the insides of the shin. From here you can step up on the side that your opponent is controlling with their leg in your bicep. Use your knee and elbow to clear your training partner’s foot. Now all you need to do is stand up really fast and push both legs to the same side to step around his guard. Use your leg to block his hips, and establish side control position with your arm behind the neck.
