We look at some attack combinations from the closed guard starting with a cutting armbar. Then we move to an armbar attack as well as a one hook sweep all set up from the initial cutting armbar attack.
We look at the standing kick pass that Marcelo Garcia does a lot against a closed guard causing the opponent to open their guard and work the pass. We go over the basics of the kick pass and the “technical standup” plan B when you actually do get swept.
In the gi session tonight we look at chokes using the lapel (collars) from the closed guard set up. A basic X-choke (cross lapel), a forearm choke and baseball bat choke which can also be used against a guard pass.
Another combo from the closed guard start. Armbar from guard to a pendulum sweep / flower sweep and triangle opportunities. Works well together.
Working a common combo off your back in guard which can start in any order really and works best when linked with each other.
