JJU 3-3 to 3-4 Mounted Collar Choke Defense

JJU 3-3 to 3-4 Mounted Collar Choke Defense

Add to Favorites 2319 Remove From Favorites 2220 days ago

Saulo explains that you must turn towards the elbow of the attacking arm when your opponent establishes the mount and has one hand in the collar to choke you with the gi. This is a dangerous position because it is highly likely that your opponent will be able to finish a choke if you allow them to settle two collar grips. As soon as they establish one collar grip, immediately turn towards the attacking elbow to nullify the choke and buy some time to make an escape.

Add to Favorites 1353 Remove From Favorites 2227 days ago

Sometimes your opponent will initiate the torreada pass looking to get around your legs just enough to drop his hips onto your body to immobilize you to finish the pass. In this case, your hands must frame against your opponent's body before their hips are able to apply pressure. Using your frame, immediately shrimp away from your opponent to clear enough room to get your legs between you and your opponent to recover the guard. The pass defense must be built into reflex to achieve an instant response to stop your opponent's pass attempt as every second that you give to them increases their opportunity to pass.

Add to Favorites 753 Remove From Favorites 2228 days ago

This Double Underhook Pass is quick and works well when your opponent is spending a lot of his energy to keep his legs open and driving down in an attempt to prevent your more classical double under pass by stacking. Instead of muscling your opponent's legs, hop over their legs instead to secure the side control.

JJU 17-11 Collar Drag When Opponent Sits Back

Add to Favorites 937 Remove From Favorites 2231 days ago

This lesson was not in the JJU book but shares the same concept of collar dragging your opponent except from a different situation. In this situation, your opponent is on their knees and leaning their weight back in an attempt to prevent the collar drag. Some minor adjustments allow us to create the opportunity to collar drag our opponent even though they are on their knees and assuming a stalling position. The collar drag from butterfly goes very well in combination with the ankle pick from butterfly. This combination echoes the action-reaction concept that can be seen in many transitions in jiu jitsu.

The ankle pick from the guard is a quick way to score two points and is very useful in combination with the collar drag from butterfly guard. As you attempt a collar drag, your opponent may draw his weight back, setting you up for the perfect opportunity to sweep and come on top with the ankle pick instead. This combination clearly echoes the action-reaction concept that can be found in many other transitions in jiu jitsu.

JJU 25-21 to 25-22 Closed Guard Break with Knee Up the Middle and Opening Against Double Underhooks

Add to Favorites 742 Remove From Favorites 2234 days ago

In this lesson we learn two ways to open your opponent's closed guard. The Knee up the Middle guard break uses your knee as a wedge to create space to force open the legs. It's a simple but highly effective solution for forcing open the closed guard against opponents with longer legs. We also learn how to deal with opening the closed guard when your opponent is hugging on to you like an overly-cuddly sloth or koala bear with the double underhooks.
