Starting with a single neck tie and controlling the other elbow (right hand gripping the lower back of their head, left hand below their bicep, controlling their arm). Drilling them trying to move their right arm inside my left to control my inside elbow. Block that by pressuring my left hand against their belly. If they go outside… grab an underhook, under their right shoulder deep on their upper back. Very important to pressure down on them to avoid them stepping inside my foot and throwing me. Slowly circle back and towards the under-hook side to take them down. Plan B is to step inside their foot, and bump their leg back above the knee to help them fall.
If they aren’t allowing the under-hook; holding the neck tie and their arm, pressure forward. When they pressure back, pull their head down and under my armpit. grab an under-hook with my now free arm, circle back and take-down.
They have a standing double neck tie, the move is to use your shoulder to break one of their wrist holds.
You position your legs so that you can rotate your hips with force away from them, put your hand over their arm on their neck, the other hand in their stomach and kind punch the inside of your elbow up and rotate your shoulder into their arm, while forcefully rotating away. Your feet will be positioned so that you’re standing with hips aligned at the end of the move.
First standup session in many moons. Did some basic drills, keeping hands up. Working on dodging or whatever the correct word is. Rotating the hips, moving the head to the outside of the strike, which evidently winds up the rear shoulder for a hook. When throwing the hook towards the head, keep the elbow up as a shield. This is fun to do shadow boxing 🙂
Really cool stuff. Defending the standing guard pass. feet to butt is the basic principle for closed guard pressure. On their second step of their standing guard pass, pull them down.
Or, after their first step, put all your weight through their opposite hip to prevent the second step.
You can cup their elbow which will be posting on you, and sweep them by attempting you shift your hips 90 degrees, and swinging the far leg out, as in a pendulum sweep, you can sweep over to mount
If you are in turtle and they have an arm over your back in an underhook. You have hands across the chin to prevent chokes. You can lock their arm with your bicep and roll pulling them over your back. This will land in side control. Block their knees with your hands, back your butt into their shoulder, rolling them onto their side. Reach the arm closest them under their chin, and continue rotating your butt around so your around 90 degrees to them. grip the back of their head with your bottom arm. Bring other bicep to the hand on their head and grip the bicep. Squeeze the darce = win.
From the other position, controlling them in turtle, you can rest an arm over their neck, and bring the other arm under their chest to clasp in the gable grip, from here you can maneuver to the darce
Just a personal rundown of the drills from tonight.
Takedown from over-unders.
Head against their chin and neck, lock hands low on their back. Pull their butt under me with pressure from my shoulder in their chest for the take down. If they stick their butt out then bring my leading foot forward and level change lower in order to be able to get a monkey grip (fingers only).
Get S-mount and transition to an armbar
From mount, post my right arm out above their head. Slide my left hand up onto their left shoulder for the cross face. The cross face will force them to loosen their elbows, allowing me to move up to high mount. Move my right arm from their shoulder to a fist on the ground, from here I can slide my left knee right up above their head. I can control their left arm with my left, pulling up on their left arm, I can put my right hand on their left hip. While holding this controlling position I can slide my right foot above their head to S-mount. If I have their right arm caught under my grip on their left arm, I can make an armbar on their right arm. I can keep my right hand on their hip to make the armbar more effective.
I’m in half guard/knee shield. They go for a cross face, I grab their cross facing arm with my same arm, opposite side. I can grab their adjacent ankle with my other hand. From here I can sweep them to either side. Practice this move, hundreds of times.
I grab the back of their head with my right arm, in order to break their posture down. I control their right arm with my left, grabbing their arm around where their elbow is, controlling it back. I posture the top of my head into their neck, as to avoid a possible bite, as well as pushing them back. When they resist being pushed back, I snap their head down and to the left, under my left arm. My left arm comes up under their chin while I grab my left wrist with my right hand. I posture down to create more base, while lifting my left arm up into their neck. This is the Guillotine 😁.
The defence is, when I am in a Guillotine, with the arm on their body side free, I swing it up and over their body, coming down their back along side their head. I drop my weight onto them through my arm. I block their hip with my other free hand. To avoid them pulling guard. I move my body around theirs, backing away from the side my head is on. This allows me to get a leg behind their leg, and sweep them to the ground. From here I want to dig my shoulder into their neck, putting my weight through the shoulder, with my weight up onto my toes. With the arm which is not cross facing them, I can then peel the guillotine off, and rotate my chest and head up to the sky.
While sitting, I want their right leg over my left. I will put my right foot under their right thigh, and my left foot on their left leg, not crossing the top of their leg. I will pinch my legs together to hold them, and push them away to have their ankle where I want it. I want their ankle under my left shoulder and I will use the bone of my left wrist to cut into their Achilles. With my left elbow pointing out, I will lift my wrist against their Achilles. I can put the sub on more by then wrapping my elbow back, and roll onto my left side, and I can then, if need be, look back moving the pressure to the top of their foot.
Sweep to heel hook:
While sitting with them standing, with hooks in, put my left elbow on the inside of my knee, and my left hand around the back of their knee. I push their right knee away, while pulling their left leg towards me. I can roll backward, while pulling the back of their knee into a heel hook. Then pushing my right hand against their right knee, I can sweep them.
Alright. Went over a huge amount of stuff re take downs and take down defence, then a baseball bat choke.
Keep weight mainly on the front foot
Keep one hand low near the leading leg to defend against single leg take-downs.
keep elbows in tight
keep eye focus just above their eye level, level shifting as necessary
Take-down eg method (gi)
With my rear hand grab their collar.
Grab above my rear hand with my front hand on their collar.
Jerk them down maintaining tension at all times on their gi, moving backward to again the grip loosening. When they react by pulling up, switch to a single leg take-down, and lift their leg by their ankle.
Baseball bat choke
left hand goes deep in their collar, fingers out of the gi, thumb grabbing the collar.
Right hand goes fingers in the gi, thumb on the outside, bringing the right hand right up against the left.
rotating butt around towards them and moving my elbow against their throat, slowly sit down and roll them over you.
The choke can be finished from here.
All these methods really deserver a bunch of attention.
