  • Hand Guard Control and Nearside Hip Control Counter

11/13/07 Lesson Plan


Have I been slacking off! I appologize for not making the time to post on here since back when the new facility opened in July. I will be back to regularly posting on here starting now! This week we're working on defeating what I call the "Wrestler Posture". This is when someone is in your closed guard, leaned over at the waist resting their head on your sternum, usually with either biceps control or with their forearms clamped tight to your hips. Any of you who have been in this situation know what a pain it can be to counter. So, without further delay....


  • Bridge to feet on hips control
  • Head push to feet on hips control
  • Underhook to feet on hips control
  • Triangle from hip control

Takedowns Class:

  • Modified fireman's carry from overhook
