Starting where he left off from the last technique, Gustavo has his arm over the back hugging the hips, the omoplata locked, and is pinching his knees together with his hips facing outside. Here he is preventing his opponent from rolling or jumping over him. Next he posts on his elbow and then his hand, keeping his abs crunched as he rises in order to keep the arm trapped. Now using his bottom leg to push off the mat, Gustavo switches his hips to the other side and lands with his legs in S position. Here he can just raise his hips to finish the shoulder lock.

Xande is playing the closed guard and before he attacks any sweeps or submissions, he is constantly looking to move his opponent's arms so he can break his posture. He either swims both arms inside to knock the arms outside, or he pushes them across his body, and then locks behind the head to control his posture. After his opponent is frustrated and pushes off Xande's armpits to stand up, Xande underhooks the leg with his arm, and opens his legs to swing them placing one in the armpit and the other over the head. He can finish the armbar here or he can knock his opponent to the ground to finish.

Add to Favorites 555 Remove From Favorites 217 days ago

Because of a knee injury, Claudia had to adjust her spider guard game, so she started her attacks from the closed guard instead. She controls one side with both a sleeve grip and cross collar grip, and brings her knee behind her opponent's shoulder. The common reaction by her opponent is to push down on her other knee in an attempt to pass the guard, so Claudia uses the space to bring her foot inside the arm and push it away at the shoulder. Now she can pull her grips and throw her leg over the shoulder for the omoplata. If her opponent defends the omoplata by posturing up, Claudia can easily switch to the triangle.

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.
