With the risk of not being perceived as trendy..I personally like to use to one leg in the middle as a base for passing and do the fighting posture. The main reason for this is that I can do many passes with very little movement: the x-pass, the knee-slide pass,the smash pass, negative x-pass, leg drag pass and even the "x-pass 2000" (as seen on home-shopping network)
The original x-pass is demonstrated here by Saulo Ribeiro:
The thing is..many times your opponent will cross his ankles behind your knee, making kicking back your leg impossible. Anyways, there still is a way to x-pass I've never seen online or on any dvd, that I picked up from Hawaii. What you can do, is actually excert downward pressure on the knee with your arm and even put your chest on top of it, then do a knee-slide over your opponents shin and twist to knee on belly. X-pass 2000..This is from Rafael Mendes
I might film this approach some day so people how the exactly leg is released with sliding it over the shin..
