Passing the guard can be quite a challenging task (some would argue that it's the toughest action in all of jiu jitsu, and I would be hard pressed to disagree). The guard game keeps developing and evolving, and to say that it can be tough to keep up is a huge understatement. However, there are a few different ways to simplify things, starting with four "directions" in which you can pass: you can pass to the right, or to the left; or you can go over the legs or under the legs to pass. That's really it, unless there's something about the laws of physics we're missing (there usually is).
