In his fight against Tero Pyylampi, Xande was again playing closed guard, and Tero was playing very defensive with his hands in Xande's armpits. 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.

From closed guard, Xande has already dragged the arm across, is reaching over the back gripping the armpit and is working to get his side angle back control. His opponent is defending by pushing back and squaring up to him, so Xande plants his top leg on the mat and kicks his bottom leg, using his opponent's momentum to flower sweep him and come to the mount. For another variation, if his opponent posts his foot on the mat while squaring up, Xande underhooks the leg and swings his top leg rather than planting it to hit the pendulum sweep instead.

Continuing from his side angle closed guard in the last technique, Xande now reaches across to attack the far arm. His first attack is the traditional reverse armbar. He also can reach across to grab below the elbow, push down on the head with his forearm and pull the arm to get a shoulder lock. A common reaction for his opponent will be to drive back into Xande and try to posture up, giving Xande the opportunity to switch to his regular climbing arm lock.

Now analyzing his fight with Rustam Chsiev, Xande was again playing the closed guard, and after some threats to the arm, Rustam kept his elbows in tight on Xande's body. Xande pushed the elbow across, pulled down the head, and escaped his hips to create his angle. Staying tight, he reaches over the back and posts on his elbow so he can keep climbing. Using his top leg for leverage, he pushes off the back and brings his hips on top, where he can establish back control.

Breaking down exactly how he set up his armbar on John Salter, Xande is breaking posture and throwing different attacks. He sits up on his opponent's hips, basing on forearm and reaching over the far shoulder. From here, John swam his head inside Xande's arm, allowing Xande to grab hold of it. Now Xande throws his arm between the legs and hooks the thigh as he pulls the head down and swings his legs up to trap the arm. To finish he lets go of the head to hug the arm, and throws his leg over the head where he can force the tap.

After breaking the posture, Xande is now ready to attack the arm, and here he breakdowns the climbing arm lock he used on John Salter. He can set it up a few ways, either step by step, or how he did in this fight, which was a quick raising of his hips. His leg on the side of the arm he is attacking is pinching tight with his calf pressing down on the shoulder with his knee pushing to the inside. His other leg is pressing down on his opponent's lat, controlling his posture and maintaining the distance, not allowing him to put pressure on Xande. From here, he can throw his leg over the head, and raise his hips to finish the arm lock.

Add to Favorites 776 Remove From Favorites 179 days ago

Starting off with his first fight against John Salter, Xande shows the basic principles he used in breaking the posture and maintaining control of his opponent. The first way is swimming, in which he swims his arms in between his opponent's, and opens them by using his forearms as he pulls with his legs. Also, he uses a lot of dragging, in which he gets wrist and elbow control, and drags the arm to his side as he climbs to get the angle on the back. Here it is important for him to maintain the head and armpit control.

Again from the half guard, Josh allows his opponent to get the underhook, so he can clamp down with a good overhook. He grabs wrist control and feeds the free arm to his other hand and makes his Kimura grip as he did before to set up the Bukich Triangle. But this time his opponent is sitting heavy on his leg, so Josh works his free leg underneath, makes a butterfly hook and stretches his opponent away from him. Now he pulls his bottom leg out and threads it underneath his hook leg. From here, he turns on to his shoulder, elevates his hips and uses his bottom leg to help him push and sweep his opponent. Once on top, he can work to establish the mount.
