Thread: guard to back transition?

  1. #1

    Default guard to back transition?

    i have been in my guard and have a few times shrimped out to the side, slid up and around to gain my oppos back,

    i havent been taught anything with regards to this so was purely doing it by what felt right, but is there any technique to it i had a look on youtube but came up with nothing

    also look at half guard, underhooks then take the back.

    i have also been looking for body triangles but only thing is how to escape them.

    i managed to get one sunk in last night and flatend my oppo creating alot of discomfort for the other guy thus him leaving his neck free for a RNC,

    but only reason i tried is from listening to joe rogan commentate the struve v beuntello, from when struve had the body triangle but failed to keep it and flatten paul out

    hows this work exactly what are the mechanics involved?

    thanks guys

    Get your leg locked over your shin, not your foot (same as for a triangle choke). That way your opponent can't put pressure on your ankle to make you release it.

    Squeeze your legs and drive your hips into your opponents back. It makes it much more uncomfortable for them and obviously keeps tighter control.

    If you roll to one side always try to keep the side you have your feet crossed on the top. If you are on your side like this, use the leg which is crossed over your shin and put that foot behind their knee. This stops them rolling you to the other side. If they do manage to roll you, switch the body triangle to other side while they roll you.

    cheers, its all to do with weight and pressure then that forces the tap when you have them flatend on the mat, just so much pressure coming down through me into them onto my leg then into the mat, thus reulting in them tapping because there stomach is being compressed so tightly or they try to fight to get the release which opens up the oppertunity to attack the neck which i found out last night.

    think i love this combo will try to utilise it alot more!

    Be careful in competition because if you are really putting pressure on them with it you could potentially get DQ'd for a spine lock.
