GB Technique: Submission Hunting with Prof. Joe Scarola

This week on GB Technique we are going to look at a variety of submission attacks from one of our favorite GB Professors – Prof. Joe Scarola of GB Jupiter, Florida
Have you checked out the GB Online Instagram account?
A few of the things we love about Prof. Scarola’s teaching: works in both gi and No-Gi, lots of details, and the techniques connect together in a chain of attacks!
1- Triangle from X-Guard setup
The X-Guard is thought of primarily as a sweeping position, but Prof. Joe shares a sweet triangle setup from there.
2- Back attack options
Alternate between choke and arm attacks until the opponent gets behind in their defense.
3- Arm in Guillotine off of Arm Drag
If you want to have a dangerous No-Gi guard, you must master the short arm Drag to expose the back and other attacks.
4- No-Gi closed guard sub combinations
Prof. Joe loops through some ways to connect submissions No-Gi. He uses the “Williams guard” to control the opponent’s shoulder and posture before finishing
