Having already set up her Williams guard omoplata position, Dominyka is ready to finish. First she pushes her opponent’s head away, and extends her own body to create the space to throw her leg over the head. Next, she posts her elbow on the mat and turns her body to get her foot on the mat, so she can lift her hips and pull her bottom leg out. Now she puts both feet on the mat, switches the collar grip to her other hand, and reaches over the back to grab her opponent’s wrist and pull the arm in to the body. Now she walks her feet to the S-position and raises her hips to finish the omoplata.

One of Dominyka’s favorite positions is the closed guard, and here she focuses on breaking her opponent’s posture so she can set up her attacks. Her first method is to cup the back of her opponent’s elbows and pull in with her arms and legs. Another option is to make a two on one grip on one hand, and drag it across while escaping her hips to open up back attacks. Finally, she can grab both hands to break the grips on her belt, raise them up and push them out as she pulls her opponent in with her legs to break her posture.

Dominyka covers the basics of pulling guard properly. Her first step is to lower her level and get in a good base. When she goes to make grips, she grabs what she can and quickly pulls her opponent hard, dragging her to the side if possible, as she goes down to the mat. Now she can start setting up whatever guard she wants to play. It's important that she acts quickly and doesn't hesitate.

Xande shows the final submission he used, which is the fastest he's ever submitted an opponent. His opponent pulls guard, but since he did not control Xande's sleeve on the side of the foot he used on the hip, Xande immediately used the X-pass to get to side. His opponent went for the single leg, but Xande got the underhook and dropped his weight. He steps all the way over the head to the other side, and spins to take the armbar, while his other hand reaches to grab the knee.

Xande breaks down the submission he used in one of his recent fights, which is a basic armbar from closed guard. Xande first attempts a basic cross choke, while his opponent is pushing him away and keeping his arms straight. After escaping his hips and breaking his opponent's posture, Xande climbed his legs high, above the shoulder, trapping the arm. Now he just brings his leg over the head to finish the armbar.

Xande focuses on the proper way to position your hand when choking from the back. A common mistake is when people keep their palm facing away, rather than facing up, so they can look at their watch, as Xande says. He also shows some options using his other hand underneath his opponent's arm.

Xande gets the mount on his opponent, but before he can make any grips, the guy turns to his side, so Xande switches to the technical mount position. Xande reaches under his opponent's arm to open the lapel to the outside, and his other hand comes under the neck and grabs with his thumb inside. Here he has many options to finish the choke, including using his free hand behind the neck, sitting back for the bow and arrow, or staying on the back and rolling through if his opponent rolls.

Xande shows two of the basic ways to hold side control when you are facing your hips toward your opponent. The first and most basic is with your bottom leg in front and your top leg posted with the knee up. However, for this position, he switches his legs so his top leg is in front. This will allow him to slide his hips over the torso when he goes for mount.

From side control, Xande is anchoring himself down with the underhook and either crossface or a grip on the shoulder, while his opponent tries to face him and push him off. Xande slides his hip up his opponent's torso, and continues sliding his entire leg, until his foot crosses over to mount. Xande emphasizes the importance of using his hip to slide across first, not his knee.

Breaking down another fight, Xande's opponent is playing half guard with the knee shield, and the classic collar and sleeve grips. Xande first whizzers the leg, and after attempting a weave pass, he swam his hand inside and made a collar grip on his opponent. Now he grabs the pants with his other hand and puts some pressure down. His opponent reacts by pushing back, giving Xande the opportunity to stand up, push the leg inside and jump to the other side. His opponent reacts by trying to turn back into him, so Xande makes a cross face and maintains side control.
