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.

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 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 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 a common submission from the back the Short Choke. This is a great option for when your opponent is tough to finish and you're having problems feeding the second hand in for the Rear Naked Choke (RNC).

Let me start off by saying that the Short Choke can be a vicious choke. Depending on how it is taught, where your forearm is and the intensity at which you go for it you may find yourself losing friends at the academy. Keep this in mind while both repping it out and while more

In this video I show a very common escape the Coffee Grinder.

I have seen this move used a lot in both grappling competitions and in MMA. It can be very effective when used correctly or lead to a broken arm when a few key points are missed or skipped.

The most important thing that you need to realize about this escape is that it should be your last line of defense in defending the armbar. I see a lot of guys use this as a primary escape and it makes me cringe because against an elite l more

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.

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 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
