Yeah, we know how it goes. You fought hard to get your training partner into an inferior position… And you’ve done it! In fact, you’ve placed them into one of the most defensive positions there is – they’re in the Turtle!
But, alas, the fight is just beginning in a way. You’re trying your best to take their back from here, but no matter what you try to do, you just can’t seem to succeed. They’re all crunched up and you can’t blast through their defense! This is especially true when you’re rolling in a Gi.
Luckily, Braulio Estima has a neat solution; one which’ll enable you submit your opponent in a surprisng way.
He shows how he sets up the spinning turtle armbar.
Braulio pulled off this crazy move at the 2004 ADCC trials.
