    The Jaws Of Life

    Sensei Eddie Bravo & all 10th Planet Instructors,

    Should we continue to try for the double under-hooks in the Lockdown whenever our opponent has double under-hooks as well? Or should we continue threw the path to Full Guard or Butterfly Guard?

    What to do whenever you have the Lockdown but your opponent has double under-hooks?

    Michael its up to you, and what you feel more comfortable doing. If your butterfly guard isn't a solid part of your game you may want to work to get those double unders.

    If your stuck with them having double unders on you (1st you should be working your ass off to prevent that from happening but if...),you can still use a modified jaws of life or I like to pummel in and use the 100%.

    Yea Mike, Chris makes a good point that as your opponent moves into halfguard and as you are securing the lockdown, you should be aggressively pulling your opponent down to you while gaining over and under, or possibly double under hooks. Remember that as your opponent moves, his pathway should be controlled as much as possible to maneuver him to your desired pathway. Think like a chess match and know the moves that you have left him to option. Good luck

    When I'm in half guard with one or two overhooks I like to use the stomp to guard and the overhook leaves the hand on the mat. It's so hard to get the hand on the mat when guys know your game but I find success with the stomp.
