Hour six of my teacher client’s Submission Grappling course focused on the omoplata position. We broke down certain components into a series of 5-minute transitional games.

  1. Top player attempts to flatten out bottom player to win. Bottom player attempts to shift to an outside position with one leg over their opponent’s scapula, breaking top player’s posture to win.
  2. Ditto
  3. Top player attempts to move back to a square-on position to win. Bottom player aims triangle legs over top player’s shoulder.
  4. Ditto
  5. Top player works to free their trapped arm. Bottom works to pin top face forward.

Due to some some detail work, we will need to repeat rounds three and four next lesson and play round five with the role-reversal in round six.
