Side Control Submission Baseball Slide Armbar.mov
This video is hosted from www.youtube.com
This is an intermediate to advanced submission that can be used when your opponent pushes you away in Side Control or Kesa Gatame.
The closer to the hips that you control the larger the pocket will be for your knee to lead in at the armpit. Make sure to base off the hand that is next to the hips and the foot that is based on the foot. This should resemble the feeling of a technical standup. Once you elevate your hips it should be a really easy transition.
Make sure that you insert the shin
This is a very simple and powerful submission from Side Control. This choke was introduced to me while I was training in Brazil by a brown belt nicknamed Pedron. This was his go to submission and he would tap everyone with it.
Make sure to dominate the position of Side Control before trying to submit your opponent. Use that shoulder in the face and chalk the hip with your hand that is feeding the lapel.
There is only one portion of this move that has to go quickly and that is the hand fee more
A look at the Kimura from Side Control. This is a very common submission that is used from a lot of different positions but some positions are a little more difficult than others.
I personally find submitting someone from Side Control to be one of the most difficult variations of the Kimura. It takes a lot of practice to feel comfortable switching your hips while you have that Kimura grip in side control.
As I stated at the beginning of the video never let your back angle towards the floor more
This reversal is a great option for when your opponent is staying VERY tight and has his hand placed next to your hip so that recomposing Guard is not an option.
This is a very high percentage move, even against people who are larger than you, when done correctly. The most difficult part is the timing and needs a good bit of practice.
Other points of difficulty include pushing with your elbow and not the palm of your hand and making sure to get that far shoulder off the floor. Sometimes this more
The Far Side Armbar from Side Control can be a great submission when your opponent is tired, distracted or otherwise not expecting it.
The success of this move is going to depend on the fluidity of your transition as well as your proficiency at getting switching grips quickly. Some of the main things that you need to look at while doing this move.
1. Make sure you look at this move as a transition of your knee. Everything else will fall into place. This movement can be a little overwhelming more
The Step Over Armbar is a submission I see attempted a lot but finished a little. This technique, like many others, is often discarded by the time you become a purple belt because of lack of success but the truth is this is a great submission!
Make sure that you move your hips back. It's so important to move the hips back that I make it steps 1 AND 2. Make sure you keep your chest angled towards your opponent and just move the hips. This will make sure you dont get reversed and it will give more
An intermediate escape that works well when your opponent is controlling over the body and is not chalking the hip.
It is important to control at the back of the triceps. This will allow you to control the biceps when you spin out the other side and it also is a good place to place your hand to avoid being submittied.
Continue to practice this move until you are good at coming out at the 90 degree angle. So many people when they do this move come out at 180 degrees (straight on with their op 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
This is a very simple transition from Side Control to Mount. This is the first transition taught to white belts and focuses on sound basics (maintaining base, getting the underhook and entering the knee at the armpit).
Make sure that you emphasize this is not a fast technique. Take your time, dominate your opponent drive that knee into the armpit. Do not, and I repeat do not try and cut the corner with your foot near the hip bone. This will lead to you being put into Half Guard or Quarter G more
Another option from Side Control where your opponent is to tight for you to enter with the pummel. This is my go to escape and I have a lot of success with this.
Remember that when you get the forearm wedged between your body and their face it is important to lift with the elbow NOT the forearm. If you lift with the elbow it insures that your hand will be lower than the elbow and you can maintain that pressure upwards while rotating the hand into the armpit.
If you have not practiced "revers more
