Side Control Options – BJJ Training Log August 24, 2016

Made it to the morning class today–got started a little late, but it was just Louis and me. After stretching we went straight to technique and got to work on three different things. This was cool, because Tuesday night training was a total beat down, and we were still feeling it 12 hours later.

Side Control to Mount #1

  • Body side elbow tight to the hip with hand in armpit for hip control
  • Roll hip to reverse kesa gatame
  • Drive off of foot and scoot hip to fold opponent’s knees over
  • Hand to legs and knee on quad
  • Slice knee to mat and flop foot to avoid quarter guard
  • Slide foot under opponent’s leg

Side Control to Mount #2

  • C cup, pull close thigh up and punch it forward, stacking legs.
  • Step into the hole between legs
  • Remove hand, and he’ll naturally turn in, allowing to slice the knee and flop foot

Gi Choke from Side Control

  • Remove lapel from belt on the hip side and take out the slack
  • Feed to cross face arm using hand or mouth
  • Hand back to hip and move legs towards head
  • Head to hip hand
