World & Pan American Champion & Atos HQ black belt Andy Murasaki teaches different sweep variations with details and attacks for the X Guard from closed guard using the lapel grip under the leg AKA Squid Guard, during the 7:30am class on 05/01/2019.
The x Guard is a great tool to have in your game. As a tall lanky grapple it allows you to stretch the opponents out and gives you a plethora of options. Anything from attacking the legs to the "simple" sweep from the skilled Atos Champ Andy Murasaky.
Andy Murasaki received his black belt from Andre Galvao in December 2020. He is a 2x IBJJF Pan Champion (brown and purple); a 2x European Champion (brown and purple); and a 2x IBJJF World and Pan Champion at juvenile.
