Today’s lesson comes from Felipe “Zicro” Neto, head instructor at Zicro Academy, in Tallahassee, Florida. He teaches a different option for when you find yourself wanting to launch an attack from side control, isolating his opponent’s arm by using the lapel, to then attack with an adapted americana.
It’s worth noting the detail he draws attention to when opening the lapel — one essential for making more fabric available and effectively trapping the arm. Zicro provides the explanation in English, so no transcript needed this time.[embedded content]
