Today I am here with the great Kyra Gracie. Kyra is one of the best female competitors there ever was in bjj and I just did a seminar here at her brand new school in Rio De Janeiro. This is one of the best schools I have ever been to, everything is state of the art and it is very nice. There are 2 mat areas and I’m very happy for her. Today I asked Kyra to show us one of the ways that she likes to finish the omoplata so let’s see below and then I will do some breakdown.
Breakdown of Great Detail To Finish The Omoplata by Kyra Gracie:
So guys as you can see this is one of the most efficient ways to finish the omoplata and Kyra is very good at finishing it this way. There is a lot going on here. The omoplata is one of my favorite submissions and I know that it can be hard to finish sometimes.
In this scenario I am trying to put my weight on Kyra and drive her shoulders to the mat. this is a good way to defend the omoplata but when you do this defense you are exposing your neck. Kyra is waiting for her opponent’s to do this defense so that she can use their momentum to hip escape and bring their shoulders to the mat.
When she does this she is able to grab my neck and push her leg forward and this puts a lot of pressure on my shoulder and even my neck. It is a choke and a shoulder lock. Anyways guys I hope you enjoyed this position and get to use it in training, Oss!
