    At approx 3.00 when oponent jumps up to pass. How to adress if the oponent pinch his/her knees? Encountered that in the gym the other day! Thanx in advance

    Any ideas on how we can address the threat when an opponent tries an ezekiel attack? When I have my left arm as underhook, and my right arm monitors my opponent’s hips, I find it difficult to quickly pull my hands in to protect my neck.

      Hi Rudy. It sounds like what you are describing is having both under hooks. Don’t stay flat there. You should be able get on your side propped up on your bottom elbow (see unit 12 and 13) to go for a single, sweep, or back take attack or to lift your opponent up toward your head with your arms and legs to get control under their hips to get other sweeps.

        Hi Nathan, you are right. I had both underhooks and flat shoulders on the mat! Thanks for pointing out the problem and giving the solutions!
