The Omoplata is a powerful shoulder lock submission, one that is available from all sorts of positions. This is even more true when you take into account the things you can do with it from the Closed Guard; basically, when your opponent defends a Triangle Choke or an Armbar, often times you’ll have an opportunity to catch them with an Omoplata!
It can be quite difficult to escape the omoplata escpecially against someone heavier, strong and with big legs.

Roger points out great details that will make this technique work for you.
