Alliance leader Fabio Gurgel teaches here another great technique from his vast repertory. Aided by two-time world champion Michael Langhi, Gurgel shows a simple, effective position starting from the closed guard. After breaking his foe's posture, Gurgel crosses the foe's arm to the side, hip-escapes and sits. With the support of the hand, Gurgel makes the move to reach the back. Without enough room to place the hooks, the four-time world champion transitions to mount and sink the armbar.
Do you have a favorite armbar variation you like doing from the closed guard? Let us know.
