In this video I show a sneaky no arm Triangle. I stress that this is not a "go to move" because when it goes bad you're basically going to be stuck in Side Control bottom. With that being said, it can be a great last ditch effort against someone who likes to pass low even when you have a collar grip. I typically like to do this to when my opponent baits the Triangle to get the pass. I am by no means a Triangle expert, but having long legs and being in the "big man" division I get a lot of people that try to offer up the Triangle to get my legs open. To be clear, I am not an advocate of offering my opponent the opportunity to Triangle me to break the legs open. When I do have the opportunity to go for a Triangle I prefer to do it with my thumb in the collar. Not only does it offer up this "no arm Triangle" but it also is a great way to keep their posture broken while I make the transition. While watching this video I mention "allowing them to pull the arm out". Whereas that i watch video >>

Video on Demand on GFL.tv http://www.gfl.tv/event/Fight/MMA/Sparta-Combat-League--Monarchs-of-Sparta/2230 Sparta Combat League closed out 2013 on GFL with "Monarchs of Sparta", a stacked MMA card on from the Grizzly Rose in Denver, Colorado. The 9 bout card had 5 finishes and 4 titles were on the line. In the main event, for the Sparta Combat Heavyweight Title, Josh "The Cuddley Bear" Copeland (7-0) defeated Jesse "The Hulk" Hernandez (6-1) via unanimous decision in a battle of goliaths. Both men slugged it out for three full rounds and proved that they have the cardio along with the strength and size to be real threats in the heavyweight division at large. Both men put it on the line and showed signs of greatness as the fans were on their feet in the final round as they couldn't believe what they were seeing. Copeland showed his technical advantage by landing the more solid punches throughout the fight but to his credit Hernandez came out like he was shot out of a cannon at the end watch video >>

Canaan Grigsby vs. Jeremiah Talley in a 185 lb. professional fight. 6-7 times the scenario played out that Talley closed in for a takedown, Grigsby landed on top and Grigsby then let Talley stand. On the feet both fighters were able to land very hard punches on each other, and both took them well. Round two was nearly a replay of round one with the up and down action. Once as Talley was slipping Grigsby landed a spinning backfist. Off of the clinch Grigsby landed a knee to the head that dropped Talley and Grigsby followed with GNP to get the TKO win at 3:37 of round two. watch video >>

In this video I show a transition from Closed Guard to Turtle position. keep in mind this is not going to be a sweep (unless you pull them so hard they fall into Side Control), but it is a great way to get out from under someone. I really like this move because it focuses on strong basics (both the technical stand up and the hip switch). This is something that you can have success with from day one through all of your skill levels. Collar Drags are serious business. Make sure that when y watch video >>

Chance Chin vs. Tyler Spurlin in a 140 lb. fight. The fighters traded hard strikes to start and when Spurlin closed in Chin pulled guard looking for a guillotine choke. Spurlin escaped, worked GNP and passed guard then set in a guillotine of his own that was defended until the bell ended the round. Round two went to the mat early and several times chin worked back to standing but each time Spurlin was able to put him back on the mat. Spurlin transitioned to back control in a scramble and ended the round working GNP from the top. Round three had Chin landing hard punches before Spurlin scored a takedown. Spurlin worked GNP until Chin scored a sweep. From the top Chin worked hard GNP for the rest of the round while Spurlin was active with escape and submission attempts. The judges' scorecards were read and the winner by unanimous decision was Tyler Spurlin. watch video >>

This video is a closer look at the Basic Armbar from Closed Guard. Although the title has the word "basic" in it you will see that there are a lot of steps involved. Being honest there are a lot of other armbar variations that are easier than this armbar but teaching this at an early stage focuses on a lot of fundamental BJJ movements like staying tight, elevation of the hips, rotation of the body, domination of the arm, squeezing the knees and not crossing your feet. I find that although the watch video >>

In this clip I look into the Scissor Sweep from Closed Guard. This is a very basic sweep that most of us learned as white belts but typically stop using as we progress past the beginner ranks. The reason we discard this move is not because it is a terrible move but more so because it requires our opponents base to be forward or driving into the persons Guard. There are many different variations to this move and I briefly address the angle of the knee and the benefits of having it across the h watch video >>

This video shows how I perform the Hip Bump Sweep. This is a very basic sweep and a very high percentage sweep all through the ranks of BJJ and even into MMA. There are many different schools that show how to do this and there are a lot of acceptable variations. In this video I show a way to swing your arms up around your head and come up off of your ribs, elbow and hand. When you come at this angle it is very difficult for your opponent to stuff the sweep while also being very comfortable t watch video >>

This is a look at the basic Cross Collar submission from guard. This is one of the first lessons taught during out Closed Guard block. You can see that I focus on breaking the posture using the core muscles instead of pulling with your arms. This will save your grip strength for when you're actually choking your opponent. In addition to breaking posture this video really emphasises the importance of good hip movement. There are tons of legimiate setups for the Cross Collar Choke and there a watch video >>

In this video I show a very simple stacking defense for the armbar. There are multiple different ways to defend but I enjoy showing this to beginners because it is a defense that you can use when you didn't see the setup for the armbar coming and your opponent already has their angle and their hips out. Make sure when you stack your opponent up you get your knee as close as possible to your opponents ear and you post your back leg at an angle so that your knee is against your opponents lower b watch video >>

This is an in depth look at how I do the Kimura from Closed Guard and a look at how to overcome the most basic defense for the Kimura. As you notice I start off by dominating the arm and not by clasping the wrist. This is different than I was originally taught. I made this change after many hours of application after I realized that controlling the wrist not only alerts your opponent to your intentions but also leads to a lower percentage finish. Once you get your Kimura grip on the arm the watch video >>

This video is an instruction into how to do the Two on One standing pass. This is one of my favorite passes because it is very dominate and eliminates a lot of your opponents sweep options. There are a lot of steps to this pass but when done correctly is highly effective. Notice that I use the hand that was controlling the hip to dominate the arm. There will be a moment where you have minimal control of the hips because of this. Make sure you pay attention and watch out for the armbar. Onc watch video >>
