This week, MMA Gospel’s Technique of the Week explores the counter to the most common defense of last weeks arm triangle. There is a point in every technique where you are most vulnerable to counter. In last weeks technique, it comes as you pass from half guard into scarf-hold position. During this pass, the easiest escape is to simply sit up and roll to create a scramble. We can use this to our advantage by turning the opponents attempt to create a scramble into an open door to take their back. Here Ed Perdomo and Johnny Rodriguez will show us how allowing our opponent to sit up lets us turn into their back, solidify our control and move into a rear naked choke.
