OK. This one is for my friend Jeremy Adkins, who won a major tournament (can't remember if it was the US Open or the Pan Ams) with this sweep.

First, lock out the foot from half guard and posture up on your elbow (so that you are on the inside, not across the body, because you'll get crossfaced and passed.

Reach under their leg with your inside arm and grab your opponents foot (the one that is not locked out). Transition it to the other hand (your outside hand) so that you are reaching across your opponents thigh and have the foot pulled against the thigh.

Then use that grip point to pull your opponent off balance (because they can't block with the foot) and push them over. Use that position, with the foot locked in, to pass your opponent's guard.

If there's anything that's confusing, ask.

If you get the ezequiel choke, you should transition to a knee-on-belly or mount because you are going to need to keep more control over your opponent than just the hip-on-hip control. Personally, I try and get to the mount, unless I feel like my opponent is going to feed me an armbar or a lapel choke from the knee on belly, where it's easier to finish.

So, from the knee on belly or the mount (or the side control, if you're setting it up from there), you should slip one hand under the head and grab the inside of your sleeve with the hand that's under the head.

Then you place the other hand across the throat and grab your other sleeve to finish the choke.

When applying the choke, extend your arms. Don't just try and squeeze, there's a lot more power in the arm extension.

Thanks Ironman. Any tips on preventing someone posturing up in your guard, steping into it holding your feet up and sitting on top of it, pinning you down with your own knees on your shoulders?

I know it sounds weird and ****ed up, but the guy who does it is fast, strong and heavier than me, and nearly impossible to sweep or trip.
I can often roll backwards out of it, but that usually ends up with me in an even worse position.
Hes pinned me down like this about three times before.

I would try and not be in this position. Really the ideal move is to shorten up your legs and get back to the guard. Bend the knees and wrap around the body to get back to guard.

It's about connecting your elbows and your knees. As Frank Shamrock says, "be the ball."

Alright I was just reading your training log for a little motivation before I go to practice. And there was something you have in there you called the Buddha Choke I think, like a gogoplata from full mount I believe you said. Now, keeping in mind I don't know what in the world a gogoplata is, any shot you could do a walk through of that sucker? It sounds viscous. And thanks for this thread, I still cant afford to take classes, so at open mats for wrestling me and some of the guys try new stuff out.

Just as an aside, if you happen to know a good BJJ instructional, which one would you (yall) recommend?

As far as instructionals go, the best ones I've found are the Marcelo Garcia and Robert Drysdale ones. Check out the samples on youtube and if you think it's helpful then buy them. They're worth it.

The Buddha Choke is, like I said, an inverted gogoplata. A gogoplata is a shin choke, basically trapping the arm and then (when you're doing the submission off of your back) pulling the head down to apply pressure to the throat with your shin.

The Buddha Choke starts from mount, and I turn like I'm going for an armbar. I step up and step over the head, but instead of turning the hips through, I flatten them out and move back to sitting on my opponent's chest. It requires a little bit of hip flexibility and often requires a little bit of work to get the shin underneath the chin.

Then I lean forward (actually, you should be leaning forward the whole time, but add additional pressure as you apply the submission) and place the knee of the leg not choking my opponent on my heel. Put my body weight on that knee to apply the choke.

Hopefully that's explanatory.

Alright, thanks for the help, I'll check them out. Yea I understand the choke I think, I'll have to get a little more comfortable with more basic submissions before I try that one out, but its nice to have in my head if I ever get to where I can use it. Thanks for explaining a gogoplata too. Ill rep you if I can

You're welcome, man.

Any more questions/stuff people need help with?

Not really a question, but since I remembered Ironman mentioning the Buddha Choke a week or two back, I was pleasantly suprised to see Shinya Aoki bust it out in the last Dream event. Since I'm a fan of show and tell, here's the pic:

F*cker, stealing my moves.

Glad to see Aoki bust it out. That man knows his way around a submission, and it's been nice to see him win with some new stuff. I always liked his Tobukan Judo game, but it did really need to evolve is he was going to be taken seriously by the submission grappling community.

With the addition of a solid gogoplata and a handful of armbar variations off the triangle, he's really starting to impress me with his versatility.

Honestly, though, his game is alot like mine (or, I should say, my guard game is alot like his), at least in terms of the rubber guard setups, and I'd like to see him start using the omoplata from the jiu-claw more, as it sets up really easily from the positions he catches his opponent in.

Alot of MMA fighters are stupid and they plant their hands on the floor to try and posture up from the rubber guard. When I'm training with MMA guys, it's something I see all the time, and I catch omoplatas and carnis all the time that way.

EDIT: A little note on Aoki's choke. It doesn't look like he's putting his knee on the ankle that's applying pressure to the throat. That's something I do (my way of imitating the pressure Eddie Bravo gets out of the locoplata) to put my whole body weight on the opponent. It draws the tap almost immediately, and I usually don't even get to the part where I'm pulling on the head.

I see what you're saying. You really wouldn't have to pull up on his head anyways as the mat is already there to keep them in place. Post out your arms for base and drive your hps forward and all your weight is going through your shin, through the guys throat and into the floor.

By the looks of it, it doesn't look like Aoki was able to completely clear his leg from the over his opponent's arm. While not completely tap-inducing as stacking his knee on his ankle, in the unlikely event that the guy on the bottom squirms out Aoki can transition to a whole slew of other subs with his opponent's arm extended past his hip.
