Same as before, Nathiely drags the arm across her body with two on one grip, and pulls her opponent in with her knees. She reaches over the back to grab the armpit, and then feeds her arm over her opponent's arm and under the leg. Now she shifts her hips so she can bring her leg over the head. Here she has the arm trapped, so she can just raise her hips to finish the armbar.

From the closed guard, Nathiely controls her opponent's sleeve with a cross grip, and drags the arm across her body as she brings her own legs to her body. Next she reaches over the back to grab the armpit, and opens her guard to escape a little to the side before closing her guard again. From here she reaches across the neck to grab the collar, and releases the sleeve grip to swim her arm under her opponent's arm and behind her head. Now she just stretches her arms to finish the choke.

Nathiely begins in the closed guard and sets up her armbar just as she did in the previous technique. But this time when she crosses her feet with one leg over the shoulder and the other in the armpit, she feels she can't successfully bring her leg over the head to finish the armbar. Instead she squeezes her knees and grabs the wrist, and pushes the arm to the outside to finish a shoulder lock similar to an Americana.

In this series, Nathiely de Jesus shows some of her favorite attacks from the guard. Nathiely has won the World Championship the last three years at purple, brown (weight and absolute), and black belt. The first technique she shows is her favorite armbar from the closed guard. With a sleeve and triceps grip on one arm, Nathiely drags the arm across her body as she pulls her opponent in with her legs. She releases her sleeve grip to grab the cross shoulder, and using her foot on the hip, she swivels her hips enough to bring her leg up into her opponent's armpit. Here she uses the leg to break her opponent's posture, so she can swing her other leg over the head and finish the armbar.

Professor Rene's opponent is sitting up in butterfly guard with his arm across Rene's back, so his first line of defense is to grab the collar and drop his elbow down, preventing a good underhook. Next he posts his free arm far away on the mat, and his opponent reaches for the arm, looking to sweep. Rene now has space on the side to step his leg over into an S-mount position. From here, he pulls the arm up and swings his leg over the head to sit back and finish the armbar.

Again from the closed guard, Victor drags his opponent's arm across and escapes his hips, looking to climb to the back. But this time his opponent drives his weight back into him, so Victor swivels his hips and underhooks the near leg. Now he opens his leg wide and swings like a pendulum to sweep to the mount. Since the arm is across the body, it's easy for Victor to switch to S-mount right away and go for the armbar.

From here he shows three options to choke. He can either pull his opponent back to finish, jump over the back and roll, or drop his hips and finish from on top.

Professor Kayan breaks down a few details on setting up the shoulder lock. When taking the back, it's important that he brings his bottom leg all the way up to the head, and even makes like a pillow for his opponent. When applying the shoulder lock, he keeps the arm hugged tight to his chest. He can also feed his arm through to go for the regular armbar as well.

Professor Kayan has passed his opponent's guard, and his opponent is on his side facing away, so he makes his seat belt grip, trapping his opponent's arms to the chest. Now he slides his knee up past the head, sits back and brings his leg over the torso, and pulls back so he can bring his top leg under to make both hooks. With his opponent defending his neck by crossing his arms, Kayan hugs the bent arm and sits back as he would to finish an armbar. However, since the arm is not extended, he submits with a shoulder lock.

Professor Gustavo is in his opponent's knee shield half guard, so his first step is to make grips on the collar and hip, trapping the knee shield leg with his arm. He controls the position here, and when he's ready, he switches his grip from the collar to the bottom knee, and steps his inside leg up. Next he comes up on both feet, keeping his base low, and runs to the other side, smashing the legs. Keeping his grip on the knee, Gustavo drops his shoulder on the hip, makes a collar grip with his other hand, and cuts his knee across the legs to pass the guard.
