Closed Guard Submission Basic Armbar.mov

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
This video looks at the basic Omoplata. There are ton of different setups that can be used but in this video we look at using the Omoplata if your opponent is in your guard and doesn't have any posture. This can be a very frustrating situation especially late in a grappling match when your opponent is trying to stall or get a breather.
It is important to get that initial hip movement. If you reference the vide you will see that I move my hips out before I try to bring that leg in front of more
This is a look at the very basic submission the Triangle.
There are bunch of different setups for this submission but I am just showing a very basic entry. My hope at this point in the curriculum is to address where the pressure comes from, how to enter this position and how to finish.
Take note that although many people pull on the back of the head to finish the Triangle that should be the last ditch effort to get your opponent to tap. I emphasis squeezing your knees together to add pre more
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 more
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 more
An in depth look at the very basic Pendulum Sweep.
This is a very common sweep that is taught to many practitioners in their first few months but requires a lot of good hip movement to truly master.
I personally chose to teach this as early as possible because it focuses on those strong fundamentals that will transfer to other moves. Please reference the video to see how mobile and "open" your hips should be.
If you find yourself having a lot of trouble with this hip movement I suggest more
This video is an in depth look into the Basic Stacking Pass.
This is a very common pass that is taught to a lot of white belts. The reason this come so early in the curriculum is because it requires very little (if any) base whereas standing passing can make the students feel like wheebles.
Keep in mind that it is very important to have good posture in the Closed Guard. If you look at the positioning of my arms they are both straight with one hand dominating the chest and one dominating the more
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 more
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 more
In this video I go over my #1 submission. Many of you will look at this with skepticism and I totally understand what you are thinking but all I can say is "it works for me".
This is partially due to my body style, the amount of refinement I've given this particular technique and, most importantly, the fact that a lot of people do not know how to deal with the Reverse Sit position. The Reverse Sit remains my go to pass and position against a skilled opponent (when I cant get the back of c more
