He’s Got Your Back! – Felipe “Preguiça” Pena

DLR (De la Riva) To Back Take

Edwin finds himself in Felipe’s DLR guard with his posture broken thanks to a collar grip. Taking his right foot off the hip/leg, Felipe uses it as a hook behind Edwin’s left knee. Next, he removes the DLR hook and lassoes his leg up, around and inside, between Edwin’s legs. Immediately, Felipe drives his hips through Edwin’s legs by posting his left foot on the mat and dragging his body forward. His right leg remains bent in the air to prevent Edwin from passing, but Felipe doesn’t sit there and quickly transitions to X-guard. Releasing the collar grip, Felipe now grips near the ankle for a 2-on-1 grip of the leg and extends his legs, stretching Edwin’s base to imbalance him. Next, he brings the leg up and over his head to his right shoulder. Still gripping with his right hand, Felipe releases his left hand grip and now grabs Edwin’s belt. Felipe pulls the belt downward, punches his right arm upward, releases his left hook, whips it around Edwin’s left leg, connects the heel of his left foot to his right shin, and pinches his knee down to trap the leg. With his right foot hooking Edwin’s left, he extends the leg. This allows his left foot to slide in, hook Edwin’s calf and kick Edwin’s leg forward, exposing his back. From here, Felipe’s right hand reaches to grab Edwin’s right shoulder, pull Edwin toward him, lock the seat belt, bring his right hook in, and take the back.
