04/12/2019 - Teaching | Half Guard | Single leg lapel wrap sweep variant finishes

Teaching #921
Artemis BJJ (Easton Road), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 04/12/2019

Faria's single leg sweeps from half guard have some similarities to the Lucas Leite series I taught a while ago. The main difference is that wrapped leg with the lapel, which broadens your options. There's the basic 'grab their far knee and drive', but you can also add in some more wrestling style takedowns. Leading with your head and drive into the hip, this can be particularly useful if they step up a leg and attempt to regain their base.

Similarly, if they try to swivel around to the front, you can tuck your elbow by their knee, turn and drive. Keep hold of that lapel wrap on their leg, that's the key to most of these techniques.

Teaching Notes: Still getting the hang of these, but the first three feel solid. However, basic point: how does Faria sufficiently control the bottom leg without them swivelling it out? Also something Sam G is great at, I should pick his brain some more. I think it's a downwards hook with the bottom leg, but need to explore that more.
