The Ude Garami aka the ‘Americana’ is probably the first submission you will learn in a Jiu-Jitsu class. It’s very basic and very powerful.
If you have been training a long time, then chances are that you haven’t submitted anybody with an Americana in a long time. That’s anybody ‘good’.
Why could that be?
Is it easy to defend or could it be that your basic Americana needs some adjustments to make it more effective.
Basics first, right? You will get to the Heel Hooks, jumping Kimuras, Gogoplatas, and other “cool” submissions… But first, you ought to learn some basics – such as the Americana from Side Control.
