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 678 Remove From Favorites 49 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.

Josh is in half guard, and his opponent has the underhook and has smashed his shield. Josh locks a good overhook on his opponent's arm, and gets control of the other wrist. He brings the wrist to his other hand, and locks a Kimura type grip, pinning his opponent's arm to the chest. From here, he slides his top knee out and puts it over the back, and plants his bottom foot to escape his hips and get his leg free so he can throw it over the shoulder and cross his feet. Keeping his overhook, Josh releases the wrist grip and grabs the back of the head. Now he can let go of the overhook to grab his shin. From here, he adjusts his hips and legs to lock the triangle and finish.

Starting from side control, Josh sets up his Kimura and falls to the inverted triangle again, but he cannot finish any of the previous submissions he's shown. With his Kimura grip locked, he curls his legs and pinches his knees, and rolls back up to his knees. Josh still has the head and arm trapped in his legs. Now to finish the Kimura, he keeps the arm tight to his chest, pulls it away from his opponent's body, and then up and over the hip til his opponent taps.

Josh has his inverted triangle set up, but his opponent is defending by opening his far elbow and keeping his arm out of reach. Since he already has a Kimura grip on the near arm, Josh drops his elbow to the mat and slides his hand up from the wrist to the hand. Here he can pressure the forearm to his chest with his own forearm, and push down on the hand to submit with the wrist lock.
