21/08/2017 - BJJ Globetrotter Camp | Heidelberg 2017 | Maintaining Side Control (Steven Antoniou)

Class #878
BJJ Globetrotter Camp (Olympiastützpunkt Rhein-Neckar) Steven Antoniou, Heidelberg, Germany, 21/08/2017

Heidelcamp marks the first time I've learned from Steve Antoniou from Poseidon BJJ: it was an absolute pleasure. Steve has a ton of charisma, meaning his classes were all a lot of fun. He began with a session on the basics of maintaining side control. You should ideally stay up on your toes, drive your shoulder into their cheek, grabbing their head. Kill the near arm.

Steve also drapes his free arm by their legs, in order to stop them recovering guard. From there, they will often frame into your face. Thread your free arm through, gripping their triceps, ideally pressing your forearm into theirs. You're attempting to drive your weight through your elbow into their ribs, compressing their breathing.

You can then step your other leg over their head, which means there is a possible armpit armbar on near arm, potential pressing armbar on far arm, or americana, plus wristlock, and even a scarf hold type armbar on near arm. If none of that works, with the gi you have a choke if they're wearing a gi.
