Champions of the 2019 Brazilian Nationals, where they closed out the master 2’s lightweight division, Cláudio Caloquinha and Sérgio Benini recently set a little time aside to share with you some of their favorite transitions.

Straight from the classic Gracie Barra Belo Horizonte dojo, the two black-belts demonstrated a couple of shortcuts to achieve a back-take.

Translated transcript:

“I’m gonna show a kimura going to the back and ending on the bow-and-arrow. I’m on half-guard with my shin measuring the distance. I’ll make a grip on the tricep. Hip escape. Always pointing the knee to the mat. And I’ll lock the kimura in place. Serginho will be doing a hand-to-hand grip to defend against this, and I can’t break that grip. I will get my hook in through the inside; I’ll take my leg out; I will spin, always to the side of the hook; and I finish with the bow-and-arrow. So [0:59], in real time…”

“We start at the omoplata. I always throw Caloquinha’s arm back to prevent him closing the elbow, and my other hand’s on the collar. I hip-escape sideways and close the omoplata over the shoulder. Now, to come up, I make a grip on his belt and I’m gonna stretch my leg. When I stretch my leg, I’m able to come up more easily. This hand here, I will place it next to Caloquinha’s pants, and I’ll pass my other hand through the middle of my leg and hold the collar. I’ll open the omoplata, hip-escape a little backward, putting my foot under Caloquinha’s body. Now [1:59], at the same time I open this leg, I pull him to me. This hand passes under his armpit; the other hand, over the shoulder; and I stabilize the back-take.”
