Abraham Marte: Sequence From the Posture Break

 

Smart jiu-jitsu athletes will often have more than one option when they attack. Many of the techniques demonstrated by Abraham are from the double hand posture break and he utilizes a sequence of transitions from this position.

1. When you go to take the back, your opponent may not tuck his arm in. This leaves his opponent exposed for a Kimura.

2. If you can’t get the submission, you can trap your opponent’s arm behind him. This leaves him with only one hand to defend a choke.
