Paper Cutter Choke from 7 o’clock North South

Paper cutter  choke from 7 oclock North South brought to you by 1/2 of the Main Brothers Mike Main. Brother of Ultimate Fighter veteran Andy Main.  One of the gems in this technique is the killing of the opponent’s arm.  Rendering opponent’s arm useless makes for less resistance and better probability of sinking in the paper cutter choke:).

Lincoln Sweep/ Toe Hold from Foot and Hook Guard

This is a  COOL sweep reminiscent to Buchecha’s knee bar attacks from half guard.
Lincoln slips in a hook while keeping a foot on the hip. He then baits his opponent to smash his legs down by placing his foot across on the hip. This is the beginning of the end.  Take the sweep for 2 points or the Toe Hold for the win.
Toe Hold option and details at the end.

Loop Choke from Guard Transition

A Kron Gracie inspired death choke! Kron is notorious for unconventional loop choking!

You can get this choke from many different positions. It is extremely versatile. Collar drag position, butterfly, spider etc.  Be creative:)

Inverted Armbar

Sick Armbar from De La Riva Guard courtesy of Inverted Gear CEO, and now, new Alliance BJJ BLACK belt Nelson Puentes.

This is an arm bar from De La Riva guard. You start off with double sleeve grip in the DLR guard. You then elevate your opponent, faking a tomoenagi overhead sweep, and allow them to plant their hands for balance. Once his weight is transferred to his arms, then swing your hips and snag the belly down arm bar.

All details enclosed in the VID as always:)

Forearm Slicer

This is a Forearm slicer for when the opponent resists the armbar.
Snag the FOREARM SLICER instead!

My absolute “go to” for when my opponent has the super duty vice grip clasp.  This technique is super high percentage.

Wrist Trap Armbar

This sneaky little armbar was done to us in training one day courtesy of Nuno Macedo :). This was one of those occasions that tapping was WORTH it.

This is an armbar you would get in side control when your opponent is framing against your hip. A pretty common action when being under sidemount,,, excellent >:)

Trap the Wrist.
Next, use your free arm to fold their legs to the mat.
Lastly, windhield wipe and throw your over his head and fall towards the legs.

De La Riva Shin Sweep

This sexy sweep was taught to me by my instructor, Lucas Lepri. I loved this sweep a little too much and carried it with me through the ranks. This sweep is available from De la Riva guard when your opponent attempts to pass your guard. They push your foot down and step over. You then intercept their leg with an underhook, switch your DLR hook to a Reverse DLR hook and deliver the sweep. You then pass the guard with a single under pass.

Lucas Lepri has put me on to the “TOTAL” game. He is complete EVERYWHERE. Can pass a mean guard, sweep a base god, and submit a sabretooth, double caralho!!

Straight Foot Lock / Side Control

This is a sneaky foot lock from side control when your opponent puts their leg up to protect from getting mounted. Perfect opportunity to snag :). In this scenario, you will set them up by applying uncomfortable pressure on their throat, shifting your knees towards their hips, lifting a leg up, wrapping your arm around their ankle, then falling to your side with a foot on his hip for escape prevention. To finish, apply pressure to the back of his achilles with the blade of your forearm and lean back.

Notice the Leg Drag position? Foot locks all daily!

Reverse Triangle Choke from the Back

I first saw this wicked technique on Cyborg’s DVD. You may ask, “Why show it?” Answer: “Cause i love this technique!”

I drilled this move feverishly. It became my primary attack from the back, next to the RNC(rear naked choke, for noob practitioners:). We are not opposed to showing a technique done before, ESPECIALLY if we love it, believe in it and use it.

Thank You Roberto”CYBORG” Abreu for the super fresh technique.

Baseball Bat Choke Variation

This unique baseball cat choke variant was founded out by Acainho. I say “founded” because he did this particular baseball bat choke variation one day in rolling when his opponent was fending off the grip. Sooooooo,, he switched the grip:) ALL Details enclosed in the video.

This is a Baseball Bat choke variation in which you switch grips and sides when in the knee on belly position. Also, to finish, instead of performing the classic step over the head finish, we used the rolling over the shoulder finish.
