To Start we’ll reach for the same side collar grip. Our other hand is going to block our opponent’s hand to make sure he doesn’t get the under grip control. So be sure to watch for that.
Next, when he reaches over to get his grip, if he doesn’t change his stance you’re going to change your level and look for that cross side ankle pick.
(A) Now, if when you go for the cross side ankle pick you change your level and your opponent steps back. (B) You’re going to penetrate the right leg through as you pull down on his lapel/gi. (C) Then you’re going to lift him (Fireman’s Carry) and roll him over. (D) Lastly, ending in side control.
It seems simple enough just looking at the pictures, right? Well if not, check out the video for a more in depth look at the cross side ankle pick to the fireman’s carry. We hope you enjoy this week’s technique! Remember to subscribe to our YouTube channel!
