Electric Sweep Pass from the 10th Planet Laboratory

The electric sweep pass is the first in our series of 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu techniques with Scott “Einstein” Epstein.

Join us in the lab with Einstein to learn the electric sweep pass. As part of our Videos from the Vault collection, this 13 part series will focus on 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu techniques with Scott Epstein.

Scott is the only third degree Blackbelt in the 10th planet Jiu Jitsu system under founder Eddie Bravo. The ever-growing and continually evolving system was developed by Eddie Bravo as a no gi style that works perfectly for MMA. Scott is the founder of 10th Planet West Los Angeles, one of the top locations in the 10th Planet network. He has been grappling for 19 years and had a brief professional MMA career in which he won all his fights from submission. Scott has had a superb professional grappling career, with multiple wins at top tournaments. He was also Chuck Liddell’s Jiu Jitsu and strength coach, as well as Jiu Jitsu coach for team Liddell on Ultimate fighter season 11.

The electric sweep pass comes from a failed attempt at the electric chair. The technique starts in half guard with the lock down. After bumping your opponent up, coming to the side and grabbing their leg for the electric chair. With a very flexible opponent, or someone who knows what is coming, the submission might fail. Instead of trying to muscle the submission, use your bottom elbow to bring you up and grab your opponent’s head for the head and arm. Because you are controlling their leg, they can’t recover half guard. From here, you simply unlock their leg and pass their guard, keeping your knee high by their head and releasing the leg you are holding to begin working your game.
