The always funny teacher Renzo Gracie shows here another one of his sneaky submission techniques -- this time, a detail for adjusting and not letting the squeeze slip.
In this lesson, Renzo teaches how to finish via americana in side control, by not allowing the opponent to escape. The technique consists of trapping their arm and positioning yourself as if answering a phone, so that your opponent, when they try to remove the arm, ends up caught by the trap that was set up.
