3 Step Sub

Back to the gym finally and there's a new expanded schedule with 3 days of jits and an additional MMA class, so I'm pretty excited. This class we covered 3 steps going from an escape to a sweep to a submission.

1 - Escape from Side Control
* Inside hand against their hip with elbow underneath them
* Outside hand is grasping the inside of their shoulder, with forearm going across their /neck/jaw
* Bump hips, with outside harm levering them up and towards opposite shoulder while inside hand holds them in place
* Swing around towards guard to get at least one leg in for butterfly guard.

2 - Butterfly Guard Sweep
* Once in guard, get one hand on head and other hand on arm (same side as outside leg)
* Pull them upwards with both arms and with inside leg
* When weight is light on their posted knee, scissor legs and roll on top
* Land on top with tight grasp on arm, one foot behind shoulder and other foot on inside of armpit

3 - Armbar
* Switch grasp of their arm so that inside arm has it while outside arm is posted over them
* Inside of elbow to inside of elbow for a night hold
* Bring outside leg around over head to get heel against their neck
* Fall back with leg over head pulled in tight and leg over chest layed down flat
- this keeps them from rolling out in either direction

Stand-up Choke

Worked on some fun chokes/takedowns from clinch.

The Intro
* Need to be going back or sideways for this to work, otherwise it is hard to move the arm out of the way
* With right hand on their head, left hand on their right tricep
* Bump their right elbow up
* Go under the arm while bringing my right around their neck

Leads to...

Stand-up Choke, left side
* Head presses against their right shoulder
* Bring my right knee in behind their right knee
* Slide in left arm and finish choke


Stand-up to rear hold
* Bring left arm around and grasp left wrist in right hand
* Pivot behind them while pulling arm through
* My grip should be up near their right armpit

which leads to...

Rear hold take down
* Bump their hips to get them off their center of balance
* Bring them down to the back or the side

which can finish with...

Armbar from Takedown
* Right shin up against their kidney - keep foot in if they move
* Right arm leaves grip and grabs back of my own head
* Left arm moves to front of their head (blade of fore-arm against cheek) to straighten them out
* Replace left arm with left leg - sit on their head
* Fall back into armbar
