Again Xande knocks his opponent's arms to the side and climbs the back, reaching over to grab the armpit. This time his opponent reacts by standing up and picking Xande up off the ground. While still hovering above the ground, Xande first grabs the arm and traps it, then grabs the near leg and throws his leg over the head. Now he can use his leverage and momentum to roll, forcing his opponent to roll as well, landing right in position to finish the arm lock.

Showing his arm lock against Rustam at ADCC, after some different attempts at breaking his posture and attacking his arm, Xande was able to knock both Rustam's arms across his chest and pull down his head, as he angled himself to the side.

Now he throws his top leg over the head and across the face, and rolls on his side, forcing his opponent to roll as well. As his opponent lands on his back, Xande is able to lay back to finish the arm lock.

Inside the University 417 - Armbar from Closed Guard when Opponent Stands Up

Add to Favorites 765 Remove From Favorites 819 days ago

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.

Claudia do Val Series 5 - Omoplata to Triangle from Closed Guard

Add to Favorites 651 Remove From Favorites 837 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.

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.

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.

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.
