Uh-oh… You’re caught in a Single Leg X and you’re in danger of getting swept and leglocked. You need to escape.
Just because you’re in a bad spot to begin with in BJJ, it doesn’t have to mean that you’ll end up getting swept or submitted! If you know what you’re doing, then you can turn every threat into an opportunity. And such is the case with the Single Leg X; when your opponent has it, you can make a scramble out of it and take their back!
But… Why just escape, when you can take their back along the way as well?
Kaynan Duarte demonstrates how to both defend and take the back against Single Leg X:
Attack the back from turtle position, standing position, half guard, and more common positions for success.
- Retain and control the back with Kaynan’s techniques for keeping hooks and hand fighting against talented opponents.
- Learn how to apply airtight RNC’s, triangles from the back, and powerful arm locks with Kaynan’s advice for finishing.
