Striking Setups for Submissions (diary entry)

Striking from the knee pin107.11.2022

Hour two of my couple clients’ course on Mixed Martial Arts groundwork brought us on to layering the striking work from last week with submissions. All of these submissions came from the opponent defending the strikes and taking advantage of the positioning presented.

We covered the following:

Side control – hammer-fists to the head, knees to the near side ribs and elbows to far side ribs to set up a cutting armbar.

Scarf-hold – hook punches into arm-triangle.

Knee pin – straight punches into armbar.

Mount – all of the above plus Kimura and Americana key locks from various punches.
