Closed Guard Submission Cross Collar Choke.mov
This video is hosted from www.youtube.com
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
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 more in depth look at the mount position and the way that I do the Cross Collar Choke. You will find that this submission is working at the highest levels of competition and if you're not using it while training and competing it might be worth revisiting it.
I do this submission a little different than some black belts. Points to look for are the way that I drive the elbow into the chest (not lift with the bicep) and the emphasis on which part of my wrist that I use. more
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 more
A look at the Kimura from Side Control. This is a very common submission that is used from a lot of different positions but some positions are a little more difficult than others.
I personally find submitting someone from Side Control to be one of the most difficult variations of the Kimura. It takes a lot of practice to feel comfortable switching your hips while you have that Kimura grip in side control.
As I stated at the beginning of the video never let your back angle towards the floor more
This sweep variation is one of the most powerful sweeps I have ever encountered and it plays well as a combination threat off of the lapel feed armbar.
Many of the small details that make this move successful are the same as the previous video. Keep in mind that the setup is key! Make sure that when trapping your opponents arm with their lapel that you feed under the hand on the hip and enter with a thumbs down grip over the elbow. When tightening down this position it comes from dropping more
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 one of the sneakier submissions that I will have posted on my youtube channel. It was taught to me by a good friend and great grappler from Brazil (thanks Thiago).
There are not a whole lot of chokes that come from an under grip but this one can come on fast. When performing this choke watch out how much space you give them when bringing the arm around the head or they may turn into you. If you monitor your space effectively enough that should not be a problem, at worst you'll have 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 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 more
