Switching Butterfly Guard (diary entry)


The seventh part of client’s submission grappling and ground-fighting course continued work on the omoplata and we also looked at the butterfly guard. After a warm-up of technique callisthenics and solo training exercises the two lockdown partners went back through the omoplata shoulder lock. After we had reviewed the details of this submission we looked at variations. This included the wrist-lock and the toe-hold. From butterfly guard we looked at a simple sweep as well as taking the back and the rear naked choke.
