Love it or hate it, you will spend a large part of your time trying to pass the guard. So it’s worth investing some time getting good at passing.
And good guard passing relies on connecting different passes together.

Each movement should take you one step closer to passing, but you keep linking techniques until you’re in a position where your opponent can’t defend anymore.
So, how do you learn to transition between passes?
One way is to train combinations of passes with you partner providing the correct counter response. To illustrate this concept here is a flow drill I call the “Round The World Drill“. This is a great as warm up or to develop you guard passing transition speed. Check out the drill below:
