    Not a fan of butterfly, more of a de la riva guard player, but an interesting read non the less.

    Ended up having them train with some other guys. It was too time intensive for what was put out.

    I was reading the first one and don't understand this step

    2. Fall forward towards their knee and land on your shoulder.

    Don't you want to roll backwards?? How would you fall forward when you have the butterfly guard in?

    Go at a 45 degree angle toward them so you end up on your shoulder.
