November 2014 Technique of the Month Video: Alternate Omoplata Finishes

We are excited to share two alternate finishes to the Omoplata (scapula lock) position!

Often, when you first lock the Omoplata position, your opponent will grab your foot, stuff it behind their head, and duck under for the escape (and guard pass). Here, we show you two ways to counter this escape that will be sure to put your training partners and opponents in trouble!

April 2013 Technique of the Month Video: Open Guard Passing

We are excited to share a simple open guard pass, which will help you gain the side control or the back mount on your opponents!
The open guard pass is done from double sleeve control, with a foot on your bicep and the other foot on your hip (aka “bow and arrow control”).
The pass will place you in a solid position to either gain side control, or if they attempt to roll away, give you the opportunity to set the hooks and take the back!
Drill these a lot, you will be surprising your training partners and opponents in no time!
These positions are must-haves for beginners and advanced Jiu-Jitsu players alike!
