How to Do the Over-Under Pass in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Learn how to do the over-under pass from Alliance MMA black belt Babs Olusanmokun in this Howcast Brazilian Jiu Jitsu video.


Over Under Pass. This is a very strong, strong pass in jujitsu. I want to pass it this side, to my left side. I'm going to roll my right hand under his thigh to neutralize his hips. To get his belt. Okay? Or some fabric on this side. This specific side of his body. This leg here is going to be stuffed between my legs. I do not release this grip here until this leg has passed his guard. Like so.

It's very important that as I'm passing with the Over Under Pass, my head stays to that corner of his hip. As soon as my opponent starts moving my head to this side, I'm not going to have him the same way. It's going to be easier for him to escape. So it's important that on the side where you're gripping the belt, or the fabric of the gi, to lock his hip down. That your chin is tucked into that hip. He drives your head to the middle of his body, you must get your head back there immediately. Until you complete the pass.

And that's your Over Under Pass.
