This was one of the first sweeps developed from the Half Guard. The control provided by the lapel grip behind the back makes this a great move for beginners, because it slows down the game, while also being great at high levels, again becuase it slows down the game while giving you the ability to control your opponents body with a single arm.
Although I have seen this taught many times throughout my grappling career, I have never seen it taught with the same hip movement that I show in this
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 is one of my very best sweeps. I developed this when I was a purple belt and I've spent the last 5 years perfecting it. Hopefully this 6 minute video can pass on some of the finer points.
The first thing that I like to point out is that my game is VERY underhook dependent. I understand that the Darce is a very common submission attempt and that is why I named this move The Anti Darce but in reality this move can be used any time your opponent takes an overhook.
When your opponent start more
Here is an often overlooked transition. Mount is one of the most dominate positions but there are times when it is not the best choice (mainly when your opponent is so large that your knees don't hit the floor). When that times arrives it is important to have a technical dismount that leaves you in a dominate position.
This technique focuses on taking the head out of alignment, dominating the hips and back stepping. Keep in mind that when you back step it is very important to post that foot 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 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
In this video I show one of the most basic Open Guard Sweeps, the Push Pull Sweep. I have seen this taught more times than I can count and I have seen tons of little details and variations that make it unique each time. It's hard to determine which was is the best because they all accomplish different things. Here is my version of the sweep.
At the beginning of this video I talk about how to transition from Closed Guard to Open Guard. This is a concept of thinking and should really be watche more
Out of the three moves that I have shown from this position this is the lowest percentage. Not because it is a bad technique, but more so because it easily defended. The good news is when your opponent bends their arm it's often right back into that Kimura from the previous video and you can use this move as a threat to set up the pass or the Kimura.
The trickiest thing about this move is the hip placement and the faith you are placing in squeezing your thighs together. You can probably se more
Known throughout the sport as one of the most dangerous strikers ever, Wanderlei Silva may be a little bit older but he's not going to be a little more cautious. Wanderlei plans on an exciting fight with Chris Leben at UFC 132, and 'boring' is not a word that enters his vocabulary.
