The Crane Pass off the Knee Shield


Passing half guard can be a pain in the butt against a skilled half guard player. 

Maybe you tried to knee cut pass but got blocked by that pesky knee shield. No worries, with the Crane Pass, you will be teleport right onto side control like magic!

My brother learned this pass from reigning ADCC World Champion Gordon Ryan and his coach John Danaher while visiting them in Austin, TX. Many people still don’t know about this technique, which makes it easier to use against unsuspecting victims. Even those that know it’s coming find it hard to stop!

This is a great pass to mix in with other passes, like a knee cut, as it changes the direction, speed, and style of passing – throwing a curve ball at your opponent.
