In this video I show another option off of the Leg Weave. This is a very important transition/submission to have as it will be very common for your opponents to crush/clap your knees together. There are a couple of different ways that you can get to the Omoplata from the Leg Weave position. Some of them require a lot of body control and the ability to go inverted. In this video I show a very simple transition that people with limited flexibility can do. When your opponent collapses on your

In this video I show a very important transition off of the Leg Weave position. This can be instituted just about any time and it guarantees you the underhook. What you can do with the underhook is up to you and what position you are in.Typically I will use this option when my opponent clears my legs with his/her base way out to the side. We saw in our previous video (basic setup and sweep) that if they pass close to the body we can load them up on the shin. It wont take too many of those s more

In this video I show the Straight Arm Lock off of the Americana setup. This is a fairly common defense for when you start to dominate the arm.

I focus mainly on the defense for when people straighten the arm and then turn the thumb down towards the floor. I do this, as opposed to the traditional thumb towards the ceiling option because if they are advanced enough to straighten the arm then they are probably also smart enough to turn their thumb towards the floor. If you watch the whole video more

In this video I show a very flashy and fun transition into the Triangle off of the Leg Weave.I really like this move because it can surprise your opponent when they get stagnant in the Leg Weave position. I became very successful with the sweeps off of the Leg Weave series and people started dropping their base and refusing to move. This made some of the sweeps difficult and I had to come up with another option that let me threaten them into moving. This transition was just the threat that I more

In this video I show a very basic but important choke, the North/South Choke. There are many different theories on the different aspects of this choke. I personally value pressure with with rib cage and making sure you're moving away from your opponent to spread the chin from his/her neck.

The first order of business is to Lasso the head. I prefer to set this up from Side Control or Reverse Kesa Gatame as the angle is easier on your elbow. Make sure if you do it from Reverse Kesa that you a more

in this video I show you my number 1 submission from Mount. This is a mix of a couple of different types of armbars and strongly resembles the S Mount armbar. It differs from the S Mount armbar in the fact that I never move my hips up into high mount to dominate my opponents upper body. This allows me to keep my body weight distributed directly above my opponents hips and maintain a better amount of base.

This armbar does not feel as threatening to your opponent as some other armbars and tha more

In this video I show an alternate setup for the Arm Triangle. Everything about the submission is the same but requires a little more control over your body and a smoother transition between Side Control on one side to Side Control on the other.

This is a very common setup that all BJJ players should have. As I state in the video it works well against people who lift with their whole arm instead of just their elbow.

Try your best not to "hop" during this transition and focus on being smooth a 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

In this video I show a very simple and common finish from the Omoplata position, the Reverse Armbar.

This is so common and easy that many of you have probably seen it before. There are not a lot of details involved in this move other than keeping good domination over the shoulder and referring to the "rule of thumb" more

In this video I show a sweep off of the Omoplata.

As I have progressed through the ranks I have realized more and more that the Omoplata is not only a submission but also a position. Once I started viewing it that way I have had a lot more success.

This sweep can be a little scary as you are "throwing yourself under the bus" when you put your head under you opponents body. You will probably have some difficulty doing this at first because of the spacing. I suggest a lot of reps and pr more
