Today’s technique question comes from Jesse who wants a high percentage Honeyhole Entry for Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. In this video I show an entry from Half Guard. Now Honeyhole goes by other names like sankaku, saddle, etc. It’s a great position for setting up heel hooks, kneebars, straight ankles, slicers and all sorts of leg locks.
Even before I started playing much with leg locks in BJJ I liked the position. It has a ton of submission options from it and does a good job of protecting your legs against their attacks.
For instance with a position like 50/50 in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. Both people have the ability to attack with a submission. With the honeyhole position it’s much more difficult. It’s not to say that there aren’t things you can do. But it’ just more difficult.
In this video I show my favorite and one of the more high percentage entries I started using early on. The best part about this technique is that it works off of someone doing the right thing inside of half guard.
So thanks again for the quesiton Jesse! Hope the video is useful. And if you’re looking for an entry into the position I hope this gets your brain thinking.
Thanks for watching!
