Learn how to apply Renzo Gracie’s favorite way to finish from the back. This is a submission set up that he used countless times in his competitive Jiu-Jitsu career and his MMA fights.
It all starts with a back take where you’ve got your hooks in and your opponent goes in turtle:
I don’t want him here in turtle. This will allow him to stand up and work his way out.So the first thing I’ll do is to make sure that I have one hand under his armpit so that I make sure that I don’t fall forward.I bring my hips back and I connect the soles of my feet together and I squash him.So it gets very heavy and prevents him from bringing back his knees to the floor.Now I’m ready to sneak in my hand and be ready for the finish.
