26/10/2018 - Teaching | Mount | Shoulder clamp mount to omoplata

Teaching #807
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 26/10/2018

Hooray, our first 'blue belt plus' class!

To secure a grip, there are two main options Kenny suggested. The first option is to wrap your same side arm around your knee, reaching under their head. Your other hand locks that in place by grabbing your wrist. A gi option is to instead reach behind your own leg, grabbing the back of their collar. There are several other submissions you can go for if the initial shoulder lock isn't viable. The two main options both involve bringing your leg over their head. If you're flexible enough, you can just swing it over. Should you need some support, slip your other hand behind, then guide the leg over.

If they manage to secure a grip on something, preventing the standard shoulder lock, you can switch to an armbar, or an omoplata. The omoplata is fairly simple. Raise up your other leg, stepping up with your foot like you were basing for knee on belly or a knee cut slide. Slide across towards that raised foot, dropping into the standard omoplata. Kenny makes a point that he drives his hips directly forwards, rather than the orthodox way of leaning towards their far ear. As ever, you can wristlock instead if that isn't working.
Teaching Notes: This was my first attempt at an intermediate class, where I decided that I'd go for combinations. I ran through the shoulder clamp entry into the kimura/wristlock, along with mentioning a few follow up options. There's the back take if they manage to get their arm free, or you could switch to the ezequiel if they manage to get their shoulder back down to the mat.
