In this video I show a great way to counter the Kimura. This can be high percentage in a lot of circumstances and can even lead to your opponent's avoiding Kimura grips when you are in Side Control or Half Guard Top.Let me start by saying DO NOT BAIT THE KIMURA TO GET THIS MOVE. That is both dumb and dangerous. Never, ever ever ever, let anyone get a Kimura grip. If you sense that you are about to get Kimuraed you need to sit up, make space and avoid the grip.With that being said, sometim

In this video I show a great submission from mount. I like this submission a lot because it works well against people who try and stay tight to protect their arms. It also works well with the Pedron Choke that I've shown in a previous video. This move starts off by feeding the lapel behind your opponent's head. This will be the hardest part of the move but in reality, it's not that hard to do once you figure out a setup that you like. You can do it the way that I show in the video, or you more

In this video I show a great way to finish from the Armbar position. This is a very dominate position and there are many options from here. I really like to push the elbow away and simply finish by falling back but sometimes my opponents read that option and stay tight with their elbow. When that happens, the Rob Kimura is a great option! Make sure you reference the video to see exactly how to cross the feet on the far side of the body. It is very important to get under your opponent's fa more

In this video I show a high percentage way to avoid being stacked and then take the back. This move looks too simple to work, but trust me, rep it out.

One of the most important things that you have to resist is your opponent clasping their hands around your waist. As you move through the ranks you will find it easier and easier to do. Fighting them off will be a combination of hand fighting and extending your back and legs to push yourself away.

It's in this time that you take control of t more

In this video I show another great sweep from the Leg Weave that you may not have seen. I really love this sweep for a number of reasons.The first reason that I love this sweep is that it keeps your opponents weight off of you which can be an important thing regardless of your size. The second reason that I love this sweep is that it is a great option for when your opponent runs North/South on your OR you failed in trying to spin all the way under them (which is more common than your opponen more

In this video I show a great Butterfly Guard Pass called the Yoke Pass. This works extremely well in both gi and no gi with absolutely no changes in the technique.As with many of my other Butterfly instructionals it's important to maintain good posture and squeeze with the knees. This specific technique is great for when you didn't get inside head control or your opponent decided to lay his/her head on your shoulder (which I find to be very common, specifically with the overhook sweep).The more

In this video I show a fantastically easy and effective counter to the North South Choke. I had not seen this counter until recently. I had taught the North/South Choke and my student asked me how I deal with this specific counter to that choke. I had never even heard of something like this and when he showed it to me it was kind of baffling. At first I didn't believe it could work, then when you have it happen...well let's just say it changed my mind. So, if you've never seen this before more

In this video I show a one handed loop choke. This is one of my absolute favorite finishes and there are a lot of places that I use it.In the video I show a simple set up from the Turtle position. Very often I show this move in conjunction with the Lapel Snatch (my previous video) as they fit well together. Next time I film videos I'll make sure to show both of these moves together.There are also three alternative finishes to this move, those will also be filmed in my next set of videos. more

in this video I show the most basic defense for the Omoplata. There are a number of really great defenses but this one can be really nice when used correctly.

Keep in mind that you are giving up your position when you decide to front roll. Although it is possible to get the top position on the other side, more than likely your opponent is going to come up on top. When you make this transition, you should plan to start fighting from that next position right away!

Although this is not my prefe more

In this video I show a great way to finish the Omoplata when your angle is off. Ideally when we transition into this submission you want your body to be parallel with your opponents, hug the hips and scoot away. But sometimes during the transition your opponent is messing with your spacing or continually fighting your leg and not letting it come over the face. When this happens you often end up in more of a 90 degree angle which can create a lot of problems.

When this happens it is importa more
