The Four Square Concept can be applied from many positions, but is most easy to see when applied to sweeping your opponent. Visualize a cross on the mat that separates the floor into four squares. When attacking a sweep or takedown, we want to dump our opponent into the square that is unoccupied by a base of support. Just like a table has four legs, if you remove one of the legs the table will collapse.
If we make use of this concept we can increase our ability to take advantage of weaknesses in our opponent’s base of support. We saw how Professor JT makes great use of this concept to repeatedly attack and sweep his opponent into the hole and swiftly pass the guard.
