Now back to sport Jiu-Jitsu, Saulo switches his hips to his side and places both feet on his opponent's hips, while keeping his collar grip. He raises his top leg up to the armpit and pressures down to break his opponent's posture. Now the other side of the neck is exposed so he makes a grip on the gi. Using his foot on the hip to create leverage, Saulo pulls his opponent in and stretches his body away to finish the choke.

Now Saulo shows how to use this motion to stand up in a self defense situation. This time without any grips on the gi, he turns to his side using the scissors motion and grips the back of the head. From here he can post his hand to help him do a technical stand up and control his opponent with his hands on the back.

To start off this lesson, Saulo begins in closed guard and looks to set up his classic guard position. With a sleeve and cross collar grip, he opens his guard, and without putting his feet on the ground he turns his hips toward his sleeve grip. Both feet go on the hips and his top leg opens to maintain inside control of the arm. Now he is in a good classic guard position.

Xande gets to the matrix, climbs on his elbow and looks to get on his knee so he can attack the back. But this time his opponent clamps down and holds his foot and leg so Xande can't take his back. Now Xande whips his back leg like a dragon tail til his knee gets to the shoulder. The momentum will force his opponent to roll and he will end up in a strong S-mount position.

Now from his Matrix side closed guard, Xande's opponent starts trying to walk toward his back. Xande steps that side leg down on the mat, keeping his other heel heavy on the hip. Now using his armpit grip he torques his opponent and rolls him over to establish top position. He can look to attack the arm or settle into S position.

Having gotten to his matrix side closed guard, Xande is now ready throw attacks at his opponent. His option is to grab the far armpit and swim his arm under the arm, trapping it to his body. He secures a solid grip at the elbow and crunches his body and he flexes to finish the reverse armbar.

Now Xande shows how he enters the matrix, which is a variation of the side closed guard. After dragging the arm across, he shifts his hips up so his legs are higher up on his opponent's body and the arm is on his hip in the pocket. Now he is ready for more attacks.

Victor now uses the space to pull his leg out and throw it over the shoulder to lock a triangle choke.

Add to Favorites 712 Remove From Favorites 189 days ago

Rafael begins in open guard with a foot on the biceps and a foot on the hip, and 2-on-1 grip control on the arm. He drops his foot from the hip to make a shin-on-shin hook, kicks it out to force his opponent to his knees. Here his opponent will try to avoid the triangle by forcing himself in Rafael's closed guard, but because he is dragging the arm across with his 2-on-1 grips, he can easily lock up the side closed guard and begin working his attacks from there.
