In this video I show the important concepts surrounding the Lapel Punch Pass.
If you watch the video you will notice that I do a couple of things differently. One of the things that I do differently involves staggering my hand grips with the lapels. This allows you to stuff the choking hand and have more success with the pass/submission.
Take note at how my hands are positioned. It is very important to have your thumbs facing your chest when taking these grips. This is contrary to the
In this video I show my number 1 Open Guard pass for both gi and no gi. There are two really important aspects to this move. 1. The Lemur Monkey and 2. distribution of your weight in the Motorcycle position. When attempting this move it is important to lead with your pelvis and control your opponents ankles. Make sure to reference the video and see the spacing and how I prevent getting swept. The enforcement of this space while maintaining a good Lemur Monkey can be very difficult and r watch video >>
In this video I show one of my bread and butter sweeps, the Low Hip Bump.
Many of us abandon the hip bump as we progress through the ranks. Often it is easy to see the setup coming and stuff the sweep. This is partially due to the fact that the setup is very easy to notice. That is when why the Low Hip Bump is so successful, there is literally no setup involved.
This sweep is crazy effective and I find that it is used most often when my opponent has had his posture broken and he/she tri watch video >>
In this video I show one of my favorite sweeps the Pocket Sweep. There are a lot of different entries into this sweep but the most important thing is passing the arm across your centerline.
The easiest way to do this is to take control of that arm and either move your hips across or by simply using brute force and passing it in front of your chest. Normally I use a combination of the two things to get maximum efficiency.
Once you get the arm across the center line it is very important watch video >>
In this video I show how to do a Reverse Armbar from Closed Guard. This is a pretty common move that you see attempted throughout the ranks but finished with very little frequency. This is due to the fact that the setup is tedious and the hip movement required to dominate the shoulder is difficult.
This is a great move to attempt on someone who has no posture and will allow you to get a "1 under one over" grip. Take note of how my hand grip is. This is a VERY important detail. The arm th 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 >>
In this video I show a very basic yet effective Butterfly Guard Pass, The Egg Cracker. I really love teaching this pass to beginners because it focuses on the spatial control and good base. The first thing that needs to be stressed in Butterfly Guard is creating distance between you and your opponent, dominating their legs by squeezing your knees and flattening out your opponent. All of these are present in this pass! The first thing part of this pass is making sure that you have a strong ba watch video >>
In this video I show a popular Butterfly Guard Pass called The Steering Wheel Pass. This pass became popular about 6 or 7 years ago. I remember the first time I saw it and we drilled the hell out of it. It's very useful and I still use it today! This pass is fairly easy and doesn't have a lot of different steps. The difficult problem is that you need your upper body and lower body to work simultaneously and in different directions which can take some practice. I will be posting a 5 or 6 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 one of my highest percentage Butterfly Guard Passes The Modified Cartwheel. This is a great option and works at all levels. I especially like to use it against advanced players as they do not expect a larger player like me to do something like this. This is distinctly different from a regular cartwheel pass as it starts on your knees and does not require you to support your body weight on your arms. As a matter of a fact that is one of the hardest part of this pass, it r watch video >>
