Rafael Mendes Devastating Omoplata From Top Side Control.
Rafael Mendes shows off his Omoplata from top side control. This video has heaps of great details. And the sequence starts from a very achievable position. So this submission is on offer pretty much anytime you have side control locked in.
The small details like how to lock the arm in place with your elbow. And where to hold your opponent’s elbow to maintain the arm as you step around to the switch sides, are pure gold.
Once you get to the finish, this Omoplata has the victim on the wrong shoulder to roll out. In a regular Omoplata from closed guard that is the main escape route. With the side control version that’s not much of an option for the bottom player.
