Reinforcement of Yesterday’s Pankration/MMA class on the Omoplata for Jiu-Jitsu Vancouver

Yesterday we covered the basic scenarios that can transpire from the omoplata technique in particular application for No Gi Jiu-Jitsu and for Pankration/MMA applications. We particularly covered the Inside Tie up set up from the guard while blocking punches and setting up the open guard control to the omoplata scenario. We covered some variations from this position to finish, sweep or set up other submissions or beneficial scenarios.  This position has been requested to be covered in more detail. We also covered the set up from an over hook control and variations.

To help solidify this lesson I have included a couple of videos, which I think are helpful, and can benefit the skills for Jiu-Jitsu Vancouver at Posener’s Pankration/MMA, Muay Thai and Submission Wrestling.


Here is another interesting set up, which was stimulated by Costa emphasizing the slide, and shows an interesting application of the omoplata from the mount position by Clark Gracie:

Here is some information on our Submission Wrestling Classes:

Our Submission Wrestling classes utilize techniques adapted from free-style wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu – BJJ Vancouver, “Catch-as-catch-can” (Folk American wrestling), Catch Wrestling, Shoot wrestling, Sambo, and Judo. These techniques are modified to be applicable for Pankration, MMA fighting (Mixed Martial Arts) and Submission wrestling as a sport. Our submission wrestling classes are a subsection of our Pankration curriculum.

It is the blending of our striking within the grappling context that makes our style unique and distinctive.
