He lands with his knee in the hip and now he can establish side control.

Xande's opponent jumps full guard, so first he grips the lapel and begins pushing the other side knee down as he lowers his base. When his opponent's guard opens, he will most likely choose an ankle to grab and look to make a De La Riva hook or play another open guard. Xande immediately drives his knee to the ground, going shin across shin, makes the cross face grip and back steps out of the guard to establish side control.

Xande's opponent grabs the single leg on him, so his first reaction is to reach over both arms and grab by the armpits. Now he steps his leg back and sprawls his weight on his opponent. For a more advanced option, he can reach over the back and grab the belt, and grab the pants at the knee. He lifts the leg up and drops pressure on the back with his elbow, as he turns to get the takedown.

Once again, Rafael's opponent is attempting the weave pass, so Rafael grips the wrist and pulls up to his chest. With his foot hooking on the hip, he straightens his other leg on the mat and digs his heel to generate leverage to turn his hips toward the trapped arm. He bends his knee and turns to sweep his opponent, and as he comes to side control, he releases the grip on the arm if he does not want to finish a biceps lock.

Again, Rafael defends the weave pass by pushing the head and posting up on his hand and knee, but this time his opponent is stubborn about holding on to the single leg. Rafael reaches underneath to cup the elbow, and rolls over his shoulder, right into an omoplata. His preference is to stretch and squeeze his legs, and he reaches over the back before scooting his hips to break the posture. Now he is in position to finish the omoplata.

Same as last techniqe, Rafael's opponent is trying the weave pass, so Rafael extends his body and pushes the head. This time, his opponent's head is too low for Rafael to kick his foot out, so instead he hooks it on the hip and uses his posted hand to stand up in base on his knee. Now he circles his knee and sits back to whatever guard he's comfortable with.
