In his final week, Marcelo Garcia shares some modifications that you can make to your butterfly guard if you find yourself getting beaten by stronger or more aggressive players. Sometimes setting your feet on the mat can create problems when your opponent charges in with a lot of speed and power and you can't react fast enough.

In this series, Marcel shows how he adapts to this situation by putting his feet up to the hips to control space, and then forcing his opponent to post his arm. Depending on what happens next, you can move to Oma Plata or a hook sweep to the other side.
