Firas Zahabi Teaches How to Execute the Butterfly Guard Sweep

Jeremy Botter@jeremybotterMMA Senior WriterJune 3, 2013

Famed mixed martial arts coach Firas Zahabi is one of the most respected trainers in the entire MMA world, and rightly so.

Zahabi serves as the head coach for top UFC stars Georges St-Pierre, Rory MacDonald and many more. His work in helping turn St-Pierre into one of the UFC's most dominant champions helped turn Zahabi into a star in his own right, and his TriStar gym in Montreal is one of the hottest destinations in the world for fighters looking to perfect the art of fighting.

Bleacher Report recently stopped by TriStar, where Zahabi showed us how to execute a successful butterfly guard sweep. It's one of the more interesting sweeps in the jiu-jitsu world, and Zahabi breaks it down perfectly.

Whether you're an amateur white belt or a seasoned black belt, Zahabi's excellent instruction can help you. Check out the video and learn something new today!
