Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Technique
1. As my opponent grabs around the back of my leg, I move to the
side of him, facing the same direction. I push down on his head
to stop his forward momentum.
2. I grab the hand that was hooking my leg with my right arm as
I continue to push his face.
3. I then roll over my left shoulder, keeping my left leg close
to his body. As I roll through I continue to control the hand
and pull myself up, using his belt.
4. I bring my left knee to the floor and turn my left leg in as
shown. My right leg right leg posts out to help me balance and
lean forward toward his left shoulder. My left arm should stay
over his back to stop him from rolling forward to take pressure
off his shoulder. Leaning forward and keeping his back down will
create pressure on his right shoulder and complete the lock.
