Continuation of Techniques from Part 1.
Monday: No class due to Finados (All Soul’s Day)
Tuesday: Leg lasso sweep – Starting from spider guard, get leg lasso. Thread other leg through in front of their hips so that foot is on the same side as lasso. Shoot in for underhook on other leg. At this stage can leave knee in (on non-lasso leg) to help pull them over or keep leg fully threaded through (what I preferred). Barrel roll using leg lasso to other side, triangle your legs and using your legs to push, roll back to the other side (don’t sit up) and roll/sit-up to top position. Somewhat similar to these but finish is different: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYRQtMyfGoo and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8AIKINiPM0
Thursday: Same technique as Tuesday night, except didn’t triangle legs this time (taught by another black belt).
Friday: Warmup was different. Running then 5 sets, 5 reps each side (no break) of: sit-up / roll over sweep (sweep on every 10), guard arm bar (start with double cross sleeve grips – every 10 complete armbar), lapel choke from guard (set up on each side, back doesn’t touch ground after initial rep). After this did scarecrow drill and guard retention (they pass using toreando, you push off their shin and shrimp back, bring far leg over onto their thigh, push off and bring your near leg in to get open guard). Think there was one more I forgot. Technique was (for white belts) – omoplata from guard. Grab same side sleeve grip and lapel on that side with opposite arm. Pull down on lapel and jam their arm back next to your leg, kick off hip using far leg and finish with omoplata, sitting up and grabbing belt. For Clark Gracie style finish (from seminar he did @ Gracie Floripa), triangle legs and use your top leg under their far armpit, move hips back to finish. For the blue/purple belts we did a toehold from when they try to escape using the jump over escape. Using near hand grab their near foot as they jump and use your far arm to wrap around and finish.

Noted while rolling: When finishing the ankle lock from outside ashi-garami (similar to 50/50 except their leg on bottom), if they grab collar etc/make it difficult to finish, slide your top leg down so it’s underneath their knee, and push (lock up triangle first if you want) while finishing the ankle lock to add more force. Somewhat similar finish to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOqzhJwP0Bg. Also test this – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXcBRHYWjBQ
Monday – Lapel Choke from Mount. High mount, if they’re defending collars with cross grips, force openings using your knees and body weight and grip lapel with same side hand and pull to create space. Using cross hand slide hand into lapel, if still not enough room, use fist to force hand through. Once hand is in a good position for choke, then you can stick thumb outside lapel. To finish choke, turn wrist so the blade of your forearm is in the side of their neck, post out to the other side using your head, slide elbow across the mat to push their head (creating space to grab the gi/exposing neck on that side) and finish with: a) mixed grip (hand outside lapel) b) double knife grip (hand inside lapel) c) forearm d) push their other side arm across their body/neck and use body weight to force that down (somewhat like an arm triangle). To finish the lapel choke, bring your elbows to your hips (and into each other) while leaning & pushing your body forward (head to mat, hands should end up around your nipple level). Can’t find a video with all the details but these have some: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1nxvsDw5vM and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikxi5KRfKFI
