In this video I show a transition from Closed Guard to Turtle position. keep in mind this is not going to be a sweep (unless you pull them so hard they fall into Side Control), but it is a great way to get out from under someone.
I really like this move because it focuses on strong basics (both the technical stand up and the hip switch). This is something that you can have success with from day one through all of your skill levels.
Collar Drags are serious business. Make sure that when y
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 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
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
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 show an Open Guard Sweep called the Kola Bear. This is a very basic Open Guard sweep and works both gi and no gi. I think this is a must have technique for all grapplers.
The best thing about this technique is that it relies on basics that we use in every day warmups, most specifically, the technical standup.
The biggest mistake that people make when trying to do the Kola Bear sweep is that they drive forward with their body but more often than not when you try to enter int 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 my favorite escape from the Omoplata submission. This is a high percentage escape and can leave you in a great position when your opponent was feeling comfortable.
The first step is to control the inside of your thigh. This will lock up your shoulder and your torso and usually give you enough time to post your free hand on the floor. Once you put your hand on the floor it is important to start basing back into your opponent and put your foot on the floor.
Keep in mi more
In this video I show a very basic yet effective Butterfly Guard Pass, The Egg Cracker.
I really love teaching this pass to beginners because it focuses on the spatial control and good base.
The first thing that needs to be stressed in Butterfly Guard is creating distance between you and your opponent, dominating their legs by squeezing your knees and flattening out your opponent. All of these are present in this pass!
The first thing part of this pass is making sure that you have a strong ba more
