As well as having a solid base and paying attention to the fundamentals, every good BJJ athlete must be up to date on options to take advantage of their opponent’s movements. With that in mind, Vitor Terra, an instructor at Gracie Terra, sent us a video.
In it, Terra shows how to counter-attack an opponent who seeks the hook sweep. To foil the reversal and gain an edge, Vitor lassoes his opponent’s neck and grabs the lapel to get to the side and invert the hip. With the adjustment, the choke gets even easier to apply.
