Submission Showcase

Hello all... In this particular thread I (and anyone else who wishes to contribute) will be posting links to videos, pictures or other type of media on various submission. I'll break down how they work, and (if available) provide instructional media. Whether you want to look at all the different ways you can get someone to tap, or just to chime in, don't be afraid to contribute.

First up:

The Twister:

Vid (in action)
Vid (Instructional)

Okay, if you've read any sort of excerpt from any of the odd postsings of Eddie Bravo, you'll swear that this has got to be the end-all/be-all of submissions. I was rather suprised that it is really just an Amateur Wrestler's Guillotine (not to be confused with the BJJ Guillotine). However, spinal and neck cranks are not allowed in amateur wrestling, but the single-leg ride with a power-half on the opposite side is a very common occurence.

The Twister is mainly a Neck Crank, compressing the cervical vertebrae and twisting them to point of hyper-rotation. Depending on the arch of the person's body while in position (and also how flexible they are), you can also put submission pressure on the persons spine, knee, abdominals and other portions of their upper torso. Yeah, I know it looks like a lying version of the Pro Wrestling Abdominal Stretch/Cobra Twist. However, due to the position that a person will be in during it's PW variant, no actual stretching occurs.

More to come as the night goes by...

The Gogoplata

Hello all. Here is the second addition to our submission showcase. It is the Gogoplata.

Vid Here

The Gogoplata is an alternative submission when going for an Omoplata. In this case, the trapping/submitting leg already is in position for the Omoplata, however the opponent on top is conscious of it and keeps adjusting with the person on the bottom to keep them from scooting their hips out completely, which prevents them from turning out from under the opponent and finishing the hold.

In this case, if the person going for the omoplata is flexible enough, and the opponent on top exposes their neck, they can secure the Gogoplata by slipping the shin and foot of their submitting leg under the chin of the top opponent. From there, their other leg would come up over the top of the opponent's head and secure itself behind their neck. The bottom man would then grabb the foot of the top leg (securing it) and would secure the choke by extending the bottom leg upwards, while levering the top leg downwards with their arms. This could result in either a carotid choke (notice the triangle formed by the bottom mans bottom leg/foot, top leg and securing arm) or in a trachea choke, as their neck is viced between the two legs.

As seen in the video above, it can result in unconsciousness if a tap is not quick enough. The problem for the top man is the fact that their arms can end up being tied up by the bottom mans legs and stuck underneath them, making the action of tapping difficult (also resulting in a tighter hold that is less likely to be escaped).

If anyone has any links to instructionals on this, I'd appreciate it.

Bas Rutten Neck Crank

Okay all. For tonight we have on display the Bas Rutten Neck Crank. This is one of Bas' own creations, and can be obtained from side control off of a Judo Scarf Hold/Wrestler's Head-and-arm pin.

Instructional and application vid HERE

This isn't completely a Neck Crank per se, but there is definitely a bit of cranking on the head that occurs. To execute the hold, you secure a standard judo scarf hold on your opponent, with your wrapping (scarf) arm hooked on the inside of your thigh/knee. Once there, reach back and underhook your opponent's near leg under the knee with you other arm, and secure your grip on the inside of your thigh/knee. At that point, you want to begin begin squeezing your arms and knees together. The action of squeezing your knees together will provide a lot of leverage and power to the hold.

What ends up happening is that your opponent's body will end up folding up into a cradle position around your body. The head of your opponent will be forced forward into their chest (like a neck crank), while the rest of their upper body and torso is compacted down. The neck crank alone has a slow strangulation effect (due to the neck being in a position it's not supposed to be), but since the body is also being compacted upon itself, your lungs and diaphragm don't have the room to fill properly with air. The opponent will tap due to being slowly suffocated, on top of the fact that their neck and torso and lower back are being compressed into a very uncomfortable position.

Admittedly, Bas has stated that this is not a hold to slap onto someone right at the beginning of a fight. It is actually most effective when the opponent has worked for a while and is starting to get tired, as this is the time that their body will really be starving for oxygen.

The Heel Hook

Now for something a bit more basic or traditional as submission holds go. I give you the Heel Hook.

Application Vid Here
Instructional Vid Here

The Heel Hook is a mainstay in Submission Wrestling and MMA, and is a very potentially damaging hold. So much so that it is not allowed in competitive Sambo and Brazilian Ju-Jitsu competitions. The hold applies great amounts of torque on the opponents ankle, and in turn transfers the torque into the knee joint. As such, not only is the possibility of dislocation of the ankle greatly present, but so is ligament damage to the knee due to the tibia and fibula of the lower leg torquing out and away from the knee joint.

To apply the heel hook, one entangles their opponent's legs as they would your Achilles Ankle Lock/Ju-Jitsu Footlock, and locks the opponents toes into their armpit. Once their, they secure a hold around the opponent's heel "hooking" it with the blade of their forearm at the base of the heel in a dual-hand grip. At that point, the pressure is created by the lifting action of their arms, and the twisting of their body laterally toward the direction of the shoulder opposite the location of the opponent's leg. Since the opponent's body and leg can not follow the motion of torque, pressure is placed on their ankle and knee.

On a side note, I believe the person in the instructional vid is Erik Paulson. He does a lot of instructional training, it currently listed on Bjj.org as a blue belt, and I believe he started out as a Student of Jeet Kune Do an went on to include judo, boxing, taekwondo, and muay Thai. He began training in BJJ in 1989, and is a regular columnist for Grappling magazine.

The Arm Bar

If there was a contest to determine the King of Submission Holds, the armbar would be running at the front of the pack with the Rear Naked Choke. There are numerous versions of the armbar, from the Waki-Gatame (armpit armlock), Ude-Gatame (straight armlock), to Hiza Gatame (knee armlock), but I was to address the Juji-Gatame (Cross-Armlock).



This is the basic armbar that is a staple submission hold in MMA and many grappling arts, so much so that when one usually refers to a win via "armbar" that they are usually mentioning a submission coming from the Juji-Gatame. The greatest strength of the Juji-Gatame is that it is extremely versatile and can be applied from a great variety of positions: the guard, the mount, sidemount, the back, standing or even from "flying" positions.

The armbar works by securing the movement of your opponent with your legs. One leg isolates the movement of the opponent's body away from the extended limb, while the other isolates the movement of the opponent's head. Once the opponent's arm is in position, and their elbow is secured across your hip or leg, the submission pressure is created by arching the hips up against the range of movement of the elbow. This can result in muscle, tendon and ligament damage, even dislocation, or bone fractures.

The Kneebar

You can think of the kneebar as the armbar's cousin from "down south." Sure they may behave in some of the same ways, but they definitely get things done differently.



The kneebar is applied similarly to the armbar (juji-gatame), where your entangle the opponent's leg between your own with their knee facing you, making sure to place your hips as far up their leg as possible, while controlling their foot/ankle with your hands/arms. While pulling back on the opponent's foot and arching your hips forward, the opponent's leg will straighten. Further pressure from you hips while continually pulling back with the arms will then cause the leg to lever further against the knee causing hyperextension.

The kneebar is also a very versatile submission hold as it can be done from the mount, while passing the guard, within the half-guard, or while the opponent is on your back (if they've not kept track of where their leg is). It can be a hard hold to secure due to the legs being a powerful body part to control, but its effectiveness is unquestioned.

Ken Shamrock's kneebar on Bas Rutten seen here. Funny thing on this, is that I noticed that Ken sets up the kneebar in Bas' half-guard by threatening a keylock. In one of Bas' instructional videos, he shows how to do the exact same thing (and it works like a charm--I know).

Frank Shamrock shows how to apply the kneebar from the half-guard here.

Cool... I'll be adding to this as the weekend passes. I've got an ISP back at the house now, so I can start posting in my fora in earnest.
