Lucas “Hulk” Barbosa Demonstrates How To Pass Guard Like A World Champion

Lucas Hulk Barbosa

I had the opportunity to attend a private class with 2018 IBJJF World Champion Lucas “Hulk” Barbosa of Team Atos. Lucas is known for his pressure guard passing, and that was the subject of the class.

If you have the chance to observe elite level BJJ fighters performing and drilling their favorite techniques, you will experience speed, precision, timing and some less than obvious details on a whole different level.

I asked a question about how the “Hulk” dealt with a knee shield defense when he was attempting to kneeslice past the open guard.

He showed an awesome drill using some sick leg work. Lucas graciously agreed to do a short video especially for Jiu-Jitsu Times readers (yes, he’s a fan!) to show the method of the pass and then the smoothness and speed of how a world champion drills.
