Inside the University 478 - Lasso Guard Drill

Add to Favorites Remove From Favorites 464 217 days ago

Gustavo once again starts with the spider guard, and his opponent is gripping both of his pants and walks to the side as he did before. As his opponent moves, Gustavo is extending his leg to the same side to keep him at bay. Now to break the other grip, he kicks his leg and pulls the sleeve. From here he loops his leg over the arm and makes his lasso hook, keeping his elbow tight to his body and his palm facing up so his opponent cannot swim his hand outside. After establishing a good lasso guard, he unhooks his lasso so his opponent can move to the other side, where he repeats the drill.

Showing the first spider guard drill of the night, Gustavo has both sleeve grips and both feet in the biceps. It is very important he does not stay flat on his back, rather is on his side, with his lower leg bent and he upper leg extended. When he transitions to the other side, he bridges off his bent leg foot in the biceps to change his direction, and then extends that same leg. For this drill he just switches back and forth, side to side. Another key point is that his foot remains right in the elbow crease, where he can keep more control of his opponent's arm.

Professor Nick Schrock shows some details and concepts of how he plays spider guard. His first concern is to get good grips on the sleeves, without any "wrinkles" or extra folds that could weaken his grip. With his feet in the biceps, Nick pulls his elbows to the ground close to his thighs, keeping his opponent's hands away from his shin so he can't grip back. If his opponent does get a pants grip, Nick rotates his hips to the side, kicks his leg out to break the grip, and then goes back to his spider control.

Claudia do Val is one of the top female competitors today, having won the World Championship at both brown and black belt. She begins her series by explaining her approach to playing spider guard. With both sleeves controlled, Claudia chooses a side and slides her foot into the biceps, and then stretches her leg. She turns her body so her hips are facing in that direction. When her opponent reacts, Claudia can slide her other foot in the other biceps, and then stretch that leg out. She drills this movement back and forth, and in a match, she can eventually confuse her opponent and take the opportunity to set up a sweep or submission.
