Closed Guard Submission Lapel Feed Armbar
This video is hosted from www.youtube.com
The Lapel Feed is one of my favorite moves. It is especially useful against strong opponents or extremely spastic opponents as it allows you a huge amount of control over their upper body/arm.
The most difficult part of this sequence is going to be getting the lapel untucked. There will be times when it is already out because you've been grappling for awhile, other times you will have to purposefully untuck it.
Typically I will take an over the back grip to break my opponents posture and
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
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 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
This is one of my favorite Closed Guard Passes. It is usable in both Gi and no Gi.
The power for this pass comes from the turning of the knee onto the rib cage. Make sure that when you step with the foot closest to the hip that it is not to close or to far away. I wish that I could accurately describe in words the spacing but it is something that is felt through many repetitions.
Make sure that when you stand you keep your opponents torso bent. If they extend their abdominal muscles an 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
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
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 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 the epitome of a big man pass. It may actually be my favorite pass against people who just try to keep their legs closed.
If you have ever relied on using your elbows to open the inside of the thighs then this is the pass for you! Just replace this pass with any time you would have done that pass!
Although this pass is extremely simple it does have a technical aspect to it. Make sure when you take grips on the upper part of the pants that you keep your arms locked out. Please t more
