Milton Bastos Taking The Back From Turtle

Here’s a real tricky one that you can use on the unsuspecting opponent. It’s starting to become one of my personal favorite moves. It’s another way to get to your opponent’s back when they turtle up.

 

1. Stay tight on your opponent and bring both of your feet inside of their legs.  Hook both of their feet with yours.

2. Squeeze your knees together and sprawl your feet out. Pick one side and roll to that side.

3. Get your bottom hook, as it’s the most important, and follow it up with your other hook.

03

Tip: Use the hook around your opponent’s foot to control the leg if necessary.
