ARM BAR DRILLS,TURTLE > BACK TAKE

We drilled arm bars today and the S-mount attack. 

Got a great tip from Mark, a purple belt or the transition to taking the back from turtle. 

I got swept from being in the top position 3 times and we discussed the back take position. 

Mark let me know that I shouldn’t commit to the seatbelt grip until ready to transition to taking the back. Need plenty of flow here. I was getting caught by having my arm trapped and getting swept to end up in his side control. 

To nullify this sweep, keep weight toward heels, get your shin parallel to his and pull toward you to roll into taking the back. HOOKS! 

I’ll try and find a video below.
