This is achieved by the distance I am creating between my back and my opponent’s chest. I then perform what is effectively a butterfly sweep. By connecting fundamental movements such as going to the shoulder and keeping my head in front of my hips, the similarity between positions such as the butterfly guard and back defence can be identified.
