Guardpass from scissor position

Basic pass as a counter to the scissor sweep.

Starting the the guard where your opponent is trying to sweep you with the scissor sweep.

First, drop your point of gravity as low as possible to make the sweep harder to execute. Now you must do three things. Head is kept thight on opponents hip, right hand grab opponents left wrist and left hand goes under opponents right leg and grabs his left thigh. Look at the picture, it's difficult to describe all the details :)

Now controlling the hip, legs and upperbody, stand up with your butt almost as high as possible.

Walk around the legs.

Insert the left knee to block out your opponents guard.

Let go of the wrist and grab behind the neck to control upperbody.

Secure cross sides position.
