Gi, Coach Sadiq

Technique: sweep to arm bar

#1 – name??? I can’t remember. I sent Coach a message so I’ll update this info later.

  • You are sitting on your butt with your opponent on their knees in front of you with their hands gripping your knees; your legs are folded but not over each other, one is father in front of you than the other
  • double grip their left sleeve
  • using your left leg, kick their left knee/thigh back and pull their arm to your left side (keep your leg underneath them, that way you already have one hook in when you take the back)
  • let go of your right hand grip and grab the belt; keep the left hand grip and staple your fist to the ground to keep their arm from moving
  • sit up slightly (to create momentum) then sit back down and pull their back onto you by their belt, so that their back is to you; get your second hook in
  • put your heels in their thighs to create solid, tight hooks; this way they will be more worried about getting away from your feet than what you are doing with your arms)
  • rejoin your right hand with your left hand on the sleeve grip and pull their left arm behind their head (their elbow in the air and hand on their own back)
  • to submit, push the hand in and pull the elbow out

#2 – name??? I can’t remember.

  • You are sitting on your butt with your opponent on their knees in front of you with their hands gripping your knees; your legs are folded but not over each other, one is father in front of you than the other
  • grip both of their sleeves
  • using your left leg, kick their left knee/thigh back and pull their arms to your left side (cross their arms as you pull them to the ground)
  • get to your side and get your other leg on top of their back, along their shoulders
  • double grip the arm on that is on top and hip in to arm bar
  • you can also take the back from here since you will already have one hook in (the bottom leg) or if they try to get up, swing your leg around their head and get the arm bar from the other side

Rolling:

  • 7 rolls in tonight, 5 minutes each
  • We have a couple new students and it’s kind of cool to be able to teach them the things that I learned as a beginner. I like that I am confident enough now in some of my knowledge that I am able to share it with others (even if it’s just the easy things!)
