These techniques should only be practiced with the supervision of an experienced instructor.
Practicing the moves incorrectly could result in serious bodily injury or death.

  1. After opening the legs, Michael gets his opponent's leg on his shoulder and inserts his left knee through the center.
  2. Grabbing behind his opponent's neck with his left hand while holding the belt line with his right, Michael clears his right leg.
  3. Once his right leg is cleared, the left hook is removed and side control is established.
