BJJ world champion Caio Terra has a great half guard game. In this video, he shows us an excellent way to take the back from the half guard top position. It’s amazing how often I find my self in half guard so it’s important to have a good way to get to a dominant position from there.
The reason I like this video so much is that there’s nothing complex here, just good solid technique. Closed guard is an iconic position of BJJ. The back take and the mount are arguably the two most dominant positions. In this video, you learn how to go from one to the other to the other in a simple and almost unstoppable sequence. The best part is that you can rely on the fact that it’s rock solid technique, because the instructor is Buchecha himself. It doesn’t come much better than this, so go drill it.
This move may make your brain fry but it’s awesome and unless he’s very experienced, your opponent won’t even understand what’s going on. When I work on this in class, I find it very challenging to do but amazing to pull off.
Your opponent has you in deep half guard and he feel’s like he’s gaining control. All of a sudden you roll and you have his back, ready to take the submission. Mind=Blown.
What a killer technique shown by BJJ superstar Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida for Hayabusa.
