Guard Passing: Re-Tooling My Pressure Passes

Pressure passes used to be my ‘go-to’ passes, but dropped out of my game (unless tired in which case I revert back to instincts) in favor finesse passes which rely on going around opponents instead of bodyweight.

Since then I’ve gone back to pressure passes the last few weeks with mixed success, the key being finding the ideal time to do each of these passes.  They’re perfect when you drop weight when as your opponents moves, the problem was I wasn’t thinking in terms of patience and ideal reactions.

So yeah, in the process of re-tooling all my old stuff.  The moves were good, I was just missing a few things mechanically here and there, and was forcing positions instead of waiting for optimal reactions.
