From the De La Riva guard, Michael's opponent grabs his collar, so Michael makes grips on the same side collar and triceps. Now he pushes his opponent away using his foot on the hip, and his opponent reacts by driving back into him. Michael pulls with both his arms and brings his knees to his chest, lifting his opponent off the mat. Now he closes his elbows, extends his legs and rolls over his shoulder on the side of the triceps grip. Michael lands in the mount and immediately attacks the armbar.

Michael starts in the De La Riva with the same grips as before, on the ankle, the collar and the foot in the biceps. This time, when his opponent goes to push the hook off, Michael feels he can't get the omoplata, so he brings his foot on the biceps to the hip. Michael pushes at the hip and sits up, before moving his foot to the knee and grabbing the triceps. Now he pushes the leg away while dragging the arm and collar to the mat. Keeping a strong grip on the collar, Michael hugs the near leg and drives to finish the sweep.

Michael Liera Jr. is one of the great young competitors of the new generation. He has won the World Championship and Pan Ams at blue, purple and brown belt, and the European Championship at black belt. He has trained at the University with Saulo and Xande, and is currently training at ATOS, under Andre Galvao. Michael will be showing us some of his favorite techniques from the De La Riva guard. The first is an omoplata. Michael begins by setting up the De La Riva with the ankle and collar grip, and his foot in the biceps. When his opponent tries to push his De La Riva hook, Michael opens his leg, causing his opponent's arm to follow. He switches his hand from the ankle to the triceps, and kicks his leg while pulling the arm to his hip. He now places his foot on the hip, pinches his knees and locks the omoplata, where can either finish or sweep his opponent.
