    What is the best advice you would give if someone is incredibly tall or has very flexible shoulders that when you are at full leg exstention it not enough pressure, do you simply disconnect your hand from your chest and use an uppercut punching motion to the back of your opponents skull ?
    Thanks ✌🏼️

      That sounds effective enough. Also, a detail Rickson mentioned in his course was to switch the far side arm grip to either an around the collar, the throat, or hair grip to prevent them from slipping away while standing in base to prevent them from running forward. Once you do this, I suppose to could kick the back of their knee out to drop them down to your level, too.

    That’s perfect body mechanics and alignment. I love the way the whole body acts as a driving force to create torque to the opponent’s shoulder joint as supposed to the arm only. The reinforced wedge created by placing the elbow directly beneath the shoulder, arm pinched tightly to the ribcage engaging lats and hand glued to the chest causing additional friction adds to the efficiency of the technique.
