more vieira series

1. drive feet to mat, toreando
2. opponent engages spider guard- throw legs above head and smash to side, pass
3. you can only grab one leg- 2 on 1 pants cuff, smash to side, pass
4. opponent sits up- hand to hip pocket, toreando variation (tackle head to shoulder)
5. back take off of #4


frazatto reverse DLR-

two grips- nearside, farside arm

off nearside arm- spin underneath; control far wrist, shoulder roll
off farside arm- rock them and sweep

think about spider guard in bicep. also leg lasso. gotta keep messing around with it.

side mount finishes

having success with the passing.

gotta think about these-

-jacare lapel choke

lately i've been obsessed with these submissions. however, the brabo and ezekiel have had the rare instances of leaving me open for flash submissions from a quick guard recovery since my arms are fully extended. gotta think about finishing these more efficiently or transitioning to mount. i don't think of moving to mount enough, mostly because i have a predilection for submissions from side control and knee on stomach. gotta advance the position more often.

vieira passing series

1. pant cuff grip toriani
2. they sit up- switch to hip grip, head in shoulder
3. they shrimp out- hop to other side
4. they track you with top leg- dope mount

single leg guard passes

1. backstep, weave foot and land reverse kesa. grip knee and top collar.
2. they have ankle trapped- drive diagonal, wedge elbow, knee slide (angle change)
3. can't get foot out- switch to top leg knee grip, hop over to reverse half guard
4. collar choke option from #2


to work on-

-off-balancing from spider guard (and sweeps)
-sweeping off of submissions from closed guard, especially from the brabo grip
-loop choke
-vieira passing series
-getting underneath them if they try and play outside

gi pants grip break- 3 on 1

upside down guard- when passing, keep knees together

vieira pass- works well. start to develop underpass off of the initial pass

brabo choke from side control- possibly vulnerable to armbar. step over nearside arm to stifle.
