The butterfly sweep

In the following class, Rickson Gracie shows how to do a perfect butterfly sweep.

The first vital detail is moving your hips and getting the best angle for the sweep. Connecting your foot to your training partner's leg will make you move your hips easier. 

The second important detail is the direction you pull your leg. You should use the hook on your opponent's leg to bring them toward you, and at the same time, use your hands to prevent them from making a post on the ground.

Watch Master Rickson's demonstration and his students practicing to understand the angle you should have and how to use your legs and arms together.

Keep your eyes and ears open for all the details. Keep training hard!
