Sometimes we’ll encounter a highly defensive partner who isn’t attempting to escape the position but only lay there. They are waiting for us to get frustrated and to create an opening for their escape. Here are a few options when we go over an elbow.
BJJ Basics: In today’s video we are in the top mount. We are attempting to execute the Triangle Choke and reviewing how to overcome some of the more common obstacles that we face working the Triangle and some complimentary submissions.
BJJ Basics Here is an option off of a defended americana. This specifically comes up when our partner is strong enough to pull their endangered arm to their free arm. In addition we cover three grip breaks when we can’t execute the arm bar immediately.
BJJ Basics: Here is an alternate attack when our partner tries to stop our Ezekiel Choke. This can also present itself in a self-defense situation when we are using strikes and a head wrap from the mount and your opponent raises their arm to defend your strikes. We end the video with a one armed version of the Americana when our partner tries to deny us the head wrap variation.
BJJ Basics: Here is a fundamental submission to utilize from the mount. It presents itself whenever our partners arms are bent and elbows exposed (as in when defending their neck from chokes and/or face from punches).
BJJ Basics: In this sequence we combine two fundamentals attacks (The Cross Choke and the Straight Arm Bar) in S Mount. In this instance the opportunity to choke our partner presents itself when they defend our arm lock. I hope you enjoy!
