Inside the University 425 - Lasso Guard Sweep

Add to Favorites 545 Remove From Favorites 102 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.

Add to Favorites 677 Remove From Favorites 106 days ago

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.

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.

With his opponent inside his closed guard and posting on his chest, Xande rotates his body to the side, underhooking the leg and throwing his legs up as he goes. He locks one over the shoulder and the other tight under the armpit. Already at a good angle to attack, Xande can now just throw his leg that is locking the shoulder over the head, and finish the armbar. Here he shows a few variations of getting his legs in position, either with one fast step or by climbing step by step, depending on the situation.

Again Xande knocks his opponent's arms to the side and climbs the back, reaching over to grab the armpit. This time his opponent reacts by standing up and picking Xande up off the ground. While still hovering above the ground, Xande first grabs the arm and traps it, then grabs the near leg and throws his leg over the head. Now he can use his leverage and momentum to roll, forcing his opponent to roll as well, landing right in position to finish the arm lock.

Showing his arm lock against Rustam at ADCC, after some different attempts at breaking his posture and attacking his arm, Xande was able to knock both Rustam's arms across his chest and pull down his head, as he angled himself to the side. Xande climbs his way to the back and throws his arm over to trap Rustam's arm to his chest, while posting his bottom knee on the floor. Now he throws his top leg over the head and across the face, and rolls on his side, forcing his opponent to roll as well. As his opponent lands on his back, Xande is able to lay back to finish the arm lock.

Inside the University 417 - Armbar from Closed Guard when Opponent Stands Up

Add to Favorites 694 Remove From Favorites 112 days ago

Xande is playing the closed guard and before he attacks any sweeps or submissions, he is constantly looking to move his opponent's arms so he can break his posture. He either swims both arms inside to knock the arms outside, or he pushes them across his body, and then locks behind the head to control his posture. After his opponent is frustrated and pushes off Xande's armpits to stand up, Xande underhooks the leg with his arm, and opens his legs to swing them placing one in the armpit and the other over the head. He can finish the armbar here or he can knock his opponent to the ground to finish.
