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

Add to Favorites Remove From Favorites 435 3 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 tries to set up the choke and armbar combination shown in the two previous techniques, but for whatever reason, she is unable to finish either submission. Instead, she swims her arm under the near leg and opens her legs wide, swinging them like a pendulum to sweep to the mount.

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.

Professor Victor is playing closed guard with the sleeve and triceps grip on one of his opponent's arms. He plants both feet on the mat and pulls the arm across his body as he escapes his hips to the side. He reaches over the back to grab the far armpit, posts on his elbow and climbs on top of the back. 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.

When Tero stood up to try to pass the guard, Xande immediately underhooked his leg, and swung his hips to trap the arm. With his legs squeezing at the right angle, Xande could easily grab the arm and finish his most basic arm lock of the tournament.

Now for the matrix arm lock, which Xande was able to finish after throwing all the previous attacks at Rustam. Xande has found himself settled at the side angle back position, reaching over and grabbing the armpit. This time, his opponent stands up to defend, so Xande posts his elbow on the mat to keep his hips up on his opponent. With his other hand, he lets go of the armpit and traps the arm to his chest. Now his posted arm grabs the near leg and he throws his leg over his opponent's head. From here, he forces his opponent to roll forward, and lands on his back where he can finish the arm lock.

Xande has the armbar set up and his opponent is defending by stacking him. Xande reaches his inside arm all the way across to the far leg, and pushes is off it, spinning himself underneath. He finishes his spin in the same position he ended up in the last technique, so once again he pulls the foot over his head, forcing his opponent to roll where he can finish the arm lock.

Xande has already dragged the arm across and is at his side angle pulling himself up to the back as he did before. His opponent is posted on both arms, so Xande lets go of the armpit and traps the near arm, hugging it to his chest, causing his opponent to flex and pull it away. Now Xande uses his bottom leg for leverage to bring his top leg over the head. From here, Xande rolls to his side toward the head. Sometimes he can submit from here, but he can also grab the near foot, pull it over and past his head, forcing his opponent to roll and land on his back, where Xande can finish the arm lock.
