Failed Lasso Guard Sweep to X Guard Sweep

Guard is a tough spot for big guys. We carry too much weight on our hips, and our mobility is generally pretty low. It creates a Catch-22 situation for the bigger Jiu-Jitsu player. We have difficulty closing our guard around each other, but we are usually pretty terrible at opened guard.

However, the guys at Big Guy BJJ have given us some options. Not only can we nail our Lasso sweep, but if it fails, we can also hit the X Guard sweep. Check it out, and let us know what you think.
