In this video I go over some of the basic controlling concepts of back control and then cover the way that I do the Rear Naked Choke (RNC). When controlling the back I like to keep a pocket (in the seated position). This leaves my hips mobile and gives some resistance against my opponent flattening me out (which is a common defense from the back). I opt to control double under grips to start off. This is not necessarily a better control than the seatbelt grip but I believe that for many begi

In this video I show a very simple way to finish from the back. This is the Basic Lapel Choke from the back or the Clock Choke from the back.

When performing this technique it is important to remember the concepts that we have learned from the previous videos. Keep that pocket in the back and after setting up your grips keep your fulcrum stationary and move the elbow behind the shoulder.

When initially setting up this submission I find it helps to start from double under grips. This gives more

In this video I show a basic escape from the back called the Monkey Grip.

As you can notice from the video the grip is not symmetrical. This is the first video in the two part series where it shows how to defend to the side with the hand contoured to the neck. Check back in to the channel to see how to defend to the other side.

Most importantly I discuss the concepts of back escaping. There is no more important concept than "if my back is on the floor then my opponent is not on my back". more

In this video I show a simple yet effective way to escape the back control.

This escape works well when used in conjunction with your other back escapes. When used alone it can become very easy to counter and can lead to mild success.

Keep in mind that this escape is best preformed when your opponent has a double over grip. When your opponent has a Seatbelt Grip or a Double Under Grip it can be very difficult to get your hips to shrimp away.

In this video I show a very powerful choke the Bow and Arrow choke. This is one of those submissions that has many entries, is highly effective and used in high level competition.

A couple of important things to keep in mind

1. like all of the other videos that I have uploaded from the back it is a good idea to start with that pocket between the front of your hips and your opponents lower back. This allows you to have free movement with your legs and will make it much easier to set up s more

In this video I show a common submission from the back the Short Choke. This is a great option for when your opponent is tough to finish and you're having problems feeding the second hand in for the Rear Naked Choke (RNC).

Let me start off by saying that the Short Choke can be a vicious choke. Depending on how it is taught, where your forearm is and the intensity at which you go for it you may find yourself losing friends at the academy. Keep this in mind while both repping it out and while more

In this video I show how to dominate your opponent from the back position and then finish with an armbar.

There are many ways to successfully armbar your opponent from the back. In this video I show how to do it off of the T-Grip or the Kimura grip. This is a great starting armbar from the back for students that have not developed the proper hip movement to finish with some of the other variations.

I really like this variation because of the domination that the hand grip provides. It frees more

In this video I show a basic Butterfly Guard Pass called Control The Ankle and Flatten Out.

I learned this when I was a white belt and I still use the concepts a lot in my passing game. The idea of controlling your opponents legs with one arm by gripping the far pant leg and then flattening out will be an invaluable skill to have at the higher levels.

The first, and most overlooked piece, is to bring your opponents ankles close to their butt and then to squeeze with your knees. I will almost more

In this video I show one of the most basic Open Guard Sweeps, the Push Pull Sweep. I have seen this taught more times than I can count and I have seen tons of little details and variations that make it unique each time. It's hard to determine which was is the best because they all accomplish different things. Here is my version of the sweep.

At the beginning of this video I talk about how to transition from Closed Guard to Open Guard. This is a concept of thinking and should really be watche more

In this video I show one of my best mounting techniques, the Hip Bind. I really like this technique because it's simple, powerful, effective and takes place from that Reverse Sit position with my chest facing their legs.

The important thing in setting up this move is spacing. The starting position is with your ribs on, or close to, your opponent's hips. You should rep this out a few times to get the feel of the spacing so that you can build power with your bridge.

Make sure that you keep yo more
