Guard Passing by George St. Pierre

I was wondering how and why George St. Pierre is able to pass the guards of guys who are known for their jiu jitsu so effectively (eg. Mayhem, BJ, etc).

What guard passes have you see him use?

You can't really just quantify it as a "guard pass" in the traditional BJJ sense. Allowing strikes, and the threat of strikes forces you do to keep your body in the safest position possible (ie your hands) which often isn't the optimal BJJ closed guard defense.

Huge difference between MMA jiu-jitsu and competition jiu-jitsu that most people do.

Some guys who are great in the cage can't keep up with half of the BJJ guys out there once they put on a gi and can't hit people.

As I recall someone saying one time...BJJ becomes really interresting once you throw in strikes, a lot of that knowledge gets knocked right out your ear everytime you get hit in the head, first hit you go from a black belt to a brown, second you go from brown to purple, third from purple to blue, fourth hit to the head your back being a white belt.

if you notice GSP uses very simple very basic transitions for the most part but from almost every position you are able to throw strikes of some kind. when guys practice with their grappling partners they usually dont train with strikes. most affective training is grappling with light strikes to show where openings are. like lets say they try to posture you down in a simple closed guard. 9 times outta 10 you are going to be able to punch to the ribs until they hafta let go or scramble. most likely from there theyll try working some overhooks. most times in the UFC nowadays you see alot of the lazy open guard which is kind of lame. im trying to learn some rubber guard and actually use it in the cage but we'll see how that works out.
