Additional Information

Head Positioning

From Top

  • Your head should be up. Forehead looking forward, not looking down. During Starting Position. On some passes, your head will be down.

From Bottom

  • Head positioning is super important from the bottom. You have to keep your head tight to them or elongated away so they can’t control it. Think head to their chest or head away.

Leg Positioning

From Top

  • Have your toes on the mat

From Bottom

  • Have your legs wrapping around your opponent’s leg. Figure four lock.

Grips

From Top

  • Try to create frames against them on their hips and chest so they can’t come up and so you can break open their legs

From Bottom

  • Collar and Sleeve Grip – One hand grabs the gi collar or the head the other hand grabs the gi sleeve or wrist.
  • Overhook Grip – One arm goes over one of their arms
  • Underhook Grip – One arm goes under your opponent’s armpit

Distance

From Top

  • You can play this a few different ways
    • Keep your distance away from your opponent. Don’t allow them to sit up.
    • Be Super tight and control the hips attempting to smash the hips and pass.

From Bottom

  • You want to play super tight or super long. Both work well, just try not to play in the middle. So you should be super tight where it is hard for your opponent to move with their posture broken or so long that they cannot grab your head.

Opponents Submission Setups

From Opponent on Top

  • Dropping back for a toehold, straight ankle lock or into a leg entanglement

Weight Analysis

From the Top

  • Your weight needs to be back on your butt for the most part with your toes on the mat.
  • Do not allow your opponent to pull you forward.
  • Try to be one mass straight – Similar to when you squat in lifting. Back straight and head up.

From Bottom

  • Your weight will be on the mat but you can manipulate it by getting off to the side and pinching your knee down on their back.
