Closed Guard Submission Triangle Choke
This video is hosted from www.youtube.com
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
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 watch video >>
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 watch video >>
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 watch video >>
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 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 >>
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 watch video >>
In this video I show a very simple way to finish from the back. This is the Basic Lapel Choke from the back or the Clock Choke from the back. When performing this technique it is important to remember the concepts that we have learned from the previous videos. Keep that pocket in the back and after setting up your grips keep your fulcrum stationary and move the elbow behind the shoulder. When initially setting up this submission I find it helps to start from double under grips. This gives watch video >>
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 watch video >>
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 watch video >>
