The Spiral Ride: Better Way To Control Opponents In Turtle

The Spiral Ride: Better Way To Control Opponents In Turtle

The Turtle position in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is nowhere as greatly explored as other positions are. That is to say: there are a number of possibilities when your opponent turtles up, both for positional advantage and for submissions… But the matter of the fact is that you probably haven’t spent a lot of time experimenting with it.

How do you usually grip your training partners when they turtle? You probably get a seatbelt grip or something similar…
But that’s a suboptimal solution.

Here is a better one: the Spiral Ride.
Craig Jones demonstrates what it is and how to use it on the video below:
