There are times when you can not get the underhook. In those instances it is very important that you have other options to threaten your opponent. In this video I show a great sweep/reversal (depending on if you use your legs to elevate them) that starts from the Half Guard position with a Kimura grip. Obviously if I have the choice I would prefer the underhook, with that being said threatening your opponent with a submission can be a great way to transition from bottom to top. When entering

In this video I go over my #1 submission. Many of you will look at this with skepticism and I totally understand what you are thinking but all I can say is "it works for me".

This is partially due to my body style, the amount of refinement I've given this particular technique and, most importantly, the fact that a lot of people do not know how to deal with the Reverse Sit position. The Reverse Sit remains my go to pass and position against a skilled opponent (when I cant get the back of c more

This is one of the single most important videos of mine and the fewest people will watch it. At a quick glance it appears like a simple move that does not require a lot of attention, but trust me when I tell you that having the ability to regain the underhook is one of the most important things you can do.

First of all it is important to avoid being flattened on your back. You should always have the underhook when available but I understand that sometimes your timing will be off and your op 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

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 more

A basic escape/transition from Side Control into Guard (Half or Full).

Remember to only attempt this move when your opponent does NOT have the hand next to your hip. This works really well with the people that control over your body, under your shoulder and drive their shoulder into your face. This is a very common (and uncomfortable) position.

When this happens try to make as much space as possible with your hips. Your opponents shoulder in the face can make getting a lot of space diffic more

In this video I show a very sneaky and effective move from the Half Guard. Although this move is labeled a sweep it walks a fine line between sweep and reversal. The ruling between sweep and reversal will depend on if you use your legs, if your opponent actually accepts the bottom position (as opposed to staying in Turtle) and how good the referee is.

This can be a great option against an opponent that has heavy hips. In the video I show to feed your opponents belt but I have also seen it ta more

The Dragon Tail or more commonly called Back Stepping is a great way to add depth to your game, especially against an opponent who likes to use the Underhook.

In this video I show some of the finer points of being successful when you Back Step. The first step is to clear your knee. This is an important step that is often taught but under stressed. Besides it being a good idea to clear your knee from the Half Guard it also sets up this move, takes pressure off your knee AND aligns your hips 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 important skill, how to regain the underhook after you've been flattened out in Half Guard.

No one wants to be flat, but there are times that it happens. Maybe you got caught by surprise, maybe your opponent is really good, or maybe you made some mistakes (more often than not it's the last one for me). Regardless of the reason, this can save you a lot of problems.

I have seen a lot of people playing the knee shield lately. But very rarely do I see anyone use the b more
