21/08/2017 - BJJ Globetrotter Camp | Heidelberg 2017 | Open Mat

Class #879
BJJ Globetrotter Camp (Olympiastützpunkt Rhein-Neckar) Open Mat, Heidelberg, Germany, 21/08/2017

For an initial bit of open mat drilling practice, I grabbed my room mate Ferdinand to have a play with some of the stuff from my Aaron Milam private. In closed guard where they're posting on your hips, your hands swim underneath their posted hands. Get an overhook on their arm as you slide to the side. Bring your knee up to that arm, pressing into their elbow. Reinforce your knee with both your hands. It's important your hand comes out to reinforce, adding that extra leverage. Otherwise, they will stack you. Your other foot is underneath them, pressing into their far hip.

From there, you can wristlock, push the wrist for a kimura or omoplata. If their arm slips higher, you can go into a pressing armbar. Should they push off their other arm, that gives you space to rotate your bottom leg out and go for the triangle. If they manage to swivel their arm the other way, trap it there, locking around their body, go for the back. If they try and bring their head back towards you, hook their leg and roll them, like a flower sweep.

For the underhook, again swim your hands in, then the underhook hand goes past their armpit, palm facing away, elbow high. Gable grip to your other hand, then you can clamp in and control from there. If their arm slips or straightens, you're back to the pressing armbar and that sequence from there. Keep your elbow high to get that arm twist.
