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".
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 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 watch video >>
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 watch video >>
In this video I show a way to escape the back position by keeping both arms tight and scooting away (or a version of a reverse shrimp). The first, and most important thing about this move, is that you protect that space under your armpits. I refer to the hand positioning as "Home Alone Hands" in the kids class and it just carried over into the adults. This is so important to this move that not only will you not be able to do it if they have a grip under your armpit, but attempting this move w watch video >>
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 watch video >>
In this video I show a very common escape from the armbar position, the L- Grip Escape. There are a couple of points that you really need to make sure to do well or you will not be able to escape effectively. The first step will be to take a good grip on the inside of your bicep or on your far side lapel. The bicep has some great counters but oddly I have experienced a lot of BJJ practitioners prefer grabbing the bicep over grabbing the lapel. Irregardless of which grip you take it must be s watch video >>
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 watch video >>
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 watch video >>
In this video I show an Open Guard Sweep called the Kola Bear. This is a very basic Open Guard sweep and works both gi and no gi. I think this is a must have technique for all grapplers. The best thing about this technique is that it relies on basics that we use in every day warmups, most specifically, the technical standup. The biggest mistake that people make when trying to do the Kola Bear sweep is that they drive forward with their body but more often than not when you try to enter int watch video >>
