Sneaky Shoulder Lock Setup from Side Control ( It’s “Ugly” )
One of my favorite submissions is a shoulder submissions commonly called the Monoplata or Marceloplata.
But I have a different name for it. I call it the Ugly armbar.
I call it this because it sort of looks like the 1st Armbar I did as a White Belt. That 1st armbar I did back in 2003 was really ugly!
And that’s where the name comes from. I call in the Ugly Armbar.
Fun story, I originally figured this move out on my own. I didn’t see it in an instructional or video. Then later on when I was browsing through some Brazilian Jiu-jitsu techniques. I came across Marcelo Garcia showing the technique.
So much for inventing a new move! 😛
In this BJJ technique video. I show one of my favorite sneaky setups for this shoulder lock submission, which starts from Side Control goes to mount and finishes.
In this setup I sort of sit up back which gives the illusion to the opponent that I’m off balance. I’ve found that many people take the bait and roll towards me.
As they do this I step over and catch the arm and setup the submission.
I’lll show another setup for this Brazilian Jiu-jitsu technique later on next week.
So whether you call it the Monoplata, Marceloplata or the Ugly Armbar like me. I hope you like the setup!
