Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 19/04/2016
Once again, I ran through the closed guard material from the seminar (I'll have that up soon, hopefully: I'm writing this up a week later, still catching up). The choke off a scissor sweep was possibly the most interesting technique. You go for a scissor sweep, but it's blocked. So instead, Kick out the knee that was across, then clamp it back over their shoulder. Keeping your fist in the collar, put your legs into a sort-of armbar position, then squeeze. If you don't get that, the armbar is right there, if they pull their arm out, you can switch to an omoplata. I think this could work especially well for Simon, as like Jamie, he's long-limbed. :)
I'm not certain it will be quite as successful for short legged people like me, and I'm also wondering how much of it is a pain-compliance technique. Still, I'll keep playing with this.
