23/08/2017 - BJJ Globetrotter Camp | Heidelberg 2017 | Torture guard (Daniel Bertina)

Class #885
BJJ Globetrotter Camp (Olympiastützpunkt Rhein-Neckar) Daniel Bertina, Heidelberg, Germany, 23/08/2017

I was looking forward to this, especially as I didn't get the opportunity to learn Bertina's crushing pressure at a Leuven Camp a while ago, because commitments meant he wasn't able to attend. The wait was worth it, as both his classes at the Heidelberg Camp were excellent (if a little mean for my preferences, but I can always modify ;D). For what he calls Torture guard, begin by grabbing their triceps with your same side hand, in an 'Eagle claw' type pinch grip. Grasp their wrist with your other hand, in a way you can rotate it, palm facing you.

Pull their arm across, then the triceps gripping hand goes to grip your wrist instead. From there, you can now transfer into a deep armdrag, take the back and choke. If they straighten their arm, trap their wrist by your armpit. Lock your legs around their shoulder, sort of in an L shape. Slight hip lift for a super tight armbar. Should they try to slip out, press the knee you have by their by head inwards, twist arm for americana. Wristlock is another option, or you can go into standard armbar.
