Professor Kayan breaks down a few details on setting up the shoulder lock. When taking the back, it's important that he brings his bottom leg all the way up to the head, and even makes like a pillow for his opponent. When applying the shoulder lock, he keeps the arm hugged tight to his chest. He can also feed his arm through to go for the regular armbar as well.

Professor Kayan has passed his opponent's guard, and his opponent is on his side facing away, so he makes his seat belt grip, trapping his opponent's arms to the chest. Now he slides his knee up past the head, sits back and brings his leg over the torso, and pulls back so he can bring his top leg under to make both hooks. With his opponent defending his neck by crossing his arms, Kayan hugs the bent arm and sits back as he would to finish an armbar. However, since the arm is not extended, he submits with a shoulder lock.

Gustavo covers some important details for his guard pass. Here he emphasizes putting pressure on his opponent during the smash, with his shoulder on the hips and his head on the chest. Also, he stays on his toes rather than dropping to his knees. This way he can drive his weight forward.

Professor Gustavo is in his opponent's knee shield half guard, so his first step is to make grips on the collar and hip, trapping the knee shield leg with his arm. He controls the position here, and when he's ready, he switches his grip from the collar to the bottom knee, and steps his inside leg up. Next he comes up on both feet, keeping his base low, and runs to the other side, smashing the legs. Keeping his grip on the knee, Gustavo drops his shoulder on the hip, makes a collar grip with his other hand, and cuts his knee across the legs to pass the guard.

Nick sets up his lasso guard and slides his free shin across his opponent's waist, the same as he did in the last technique. But this time when he reaches under to hook the leg, he reaches all the way across, hooking the outside of the far leg. Using his leverage, he spins underneath his opponent and inverts, pushing his shoulder off the mat to drive into his opponent. His opponent reacts by pressuring back, and Nick uses his opponent's force and momentum to load him up and sweep.

From the open guard, Professor Nick Schrock makes a sleeve grip, places both his feet on his opponent's hips to escape his own hips, and grips the other sleeve or the collar before throwing his leg lasso over the first arm. He keeps his gripping hand tight to his own leg, and locks his elbow down. Now he puts his free foot across his opponent's body, hooking the waist with his shin. His opponent tries to pass to the open side, so Nick swims his arm under the near leg and rolls him to the side of the lasso, finishing on top.

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.
