Add to Favorites 446 Remove From Favorites 8 days ago

Professor Frank shows his favorite lasso guard sweep variation. With both sleeve grips and one foot on his opponent's hip, Frank throws his other leg over the arm for the lasso, but first pushes the shoulder away with his foot, creating the space for him to sink in his lasso. Next he moves his foot on the hip so his shin is across his opponent's body. The common reaction by his opponent is to come forward at him, so Frank pivots underneath him, underhooking the leg and loading him up on his shins so he can easily sweep him to the side.

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.

From the closed guard, Professor Gustavo controls one wrist and blocks the other shoulder of his opponent. He pushes the shoulder and brings his knee in toward him and then stretches his other leg and throws it over the shoulder for the omoplata. Now rather than flattening his back on the mat, Gustavo keeps his hips facing to the outside and places them under his opponent's belly. From here, he reaches over the back to hug the hips and locks his legs. Now he is in a solid position to set himself up for the finish.

Nick has his spider guard set up and his opponent breaks one of his grips and throws his leg. His first step is to immediately bring his free let across and hook the outside of his opponent's knee, then he clamps down on the biceps with his other foot and opens his hips toward his opponent. His opponent reacts by stepping around the leg to knee on belly, so he reaches and grabs the pants. Now he pulls his foot in the biceps down and stretches it out, and repeats this a few times, each time bringing his opponent more and more to the side until he has the leverage to sweep him.

Add to Favorites 533 Remove From Favorites 13 days ago

Professor Nick Schrock shows some details and concepts of how he plays spider guard. His first concern is to get good grips on the sleeves, without any "wrinkles" or extra folds that could weaken his grip. With his feet in the biceps, Nick pulls his elbows to the ground close to his thighs, keeping his opponent's hands away from his shin so he can't grip back. If his opponent does get a pants grip, Nick rotates his hips to the side, kicks his leg out to break the grip, and then goes back to his spider control.
