Rat Guard?

Thursday, February 23, 2012

Things To Think About

  • How to defend against Luis' deep half guard? Everything I get on top, he grabs deep half and sweeps me.
  • How to maintain a better side control? Some people when I have in side control and shrimp out really easily. What do I need to improve my control over them? Better pressure? Control the head? Knee to butt?
  • I need to improve on my single leg takedowns. I usually can grab a single leg, but I can't seem to get them down. Maybe I need to improve my lower back muscle?

Open Guard Sweeps From Last Week

  1. Tripod Sweep
  2. Waiter Sweep
  3. Omoplata Sweep
* A key tip from Terence is to completely clear the legs when passing guard. Having your lower half left in can get you swept.

    Omoplata Sweep

    The key component that I'm missing to this sweep is that I have to shoot my hips up!

    Here are some variations and finishes to this sweep.
