Closed Guard Submission Reverse Armbar
This video is hosted from www.youtube.com
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
In this video I show a very simple and common finish from the Omoplata position, the Reverse Armbar.
This is so common and easy that many of you have probably seen it before. There are not a lot of details involved in this move other than keeping good domination over the shoulder and referring to the "rule of thumb" more
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 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
In this video I explain how to apply the Darce choke. This is a very common choke with a large variety of setups. During this instructional video I demonstrate how to enter the Darce choke when your opponent has an underhook. Most commonly this will happen when you are in Half Guard top or Side Control.
There are a couple of very important points when trying to finish the Darce choke. The first and most important thing to remember is head control. If you reference the video you will see that I more
In this video I show a very common escape the Coffee Grinder.
I have seen this move used a lot in both grappling competitions and in MMA. It can be very effective when used correctly or lead to a broken arm when a few key points are missed or skipped.
The most important thing that you need to realize about this escape is that it should be your last line of defense in defending the armbar. I see a lot of guys use this as a primary escape and it makes me cringe because against an elite l more
In this video I show the next logical move after you have obtained a deep underhook. Having a deep underhook opens up the pathway to the back!
There are plenty of ways to finish coming out on the back, in this video I show one way to do it. I emphasize pulling my opponent back into me instead of hipping up and over. I have heard that by having that hook in you hare "half way to the back" but in reality that hook is as much of a liability as it is a benefit. If you take the back the way th 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
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 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 more
