Side Control Guard

Reference: Side Control

Movie of Side Control Guard.

Fig. 1 Start Fig. 2 Bridge

  1. Fig. 1 shows the start with Side Control.
  2. Fig. 2 shows Nage bridging up to toss Uke into the air giving Nage space to move under Uke.

    Fig. 3 Guard Fig. 4 Sweep

  3. Fig. 3 shows Nage after he pivots under Uke into the Guard position.
  4. In Fig. 4 Nage is continuing the movement to sweep Uke.

    Fig. 5 Mounting Fig. 6 Elbow Strike

  5. Fig. 5 shows Uke on the ground at the end of the sweep and Nage's momentum is carrying Nage into a mount position.
  6. In Fig. 6 Nage is in the Mount. This is not really very safe so Nage's momentum continues carrying Nage into an upper forearm strike (elbow) into Uke's neck or face. This will set up a twisted arm lock.
