1 hook in from the back= more options than two?
I would often find myself in a position where I was controlling someone from turtle position, but he had good defense there so I wasnt able to pull anything off. Sometimes I would be working on this for 2 minutes, trying to take his back, trying dŽarce etc. But everything is defended. But lately I realized something, its more than enough just to get one hook in to pull off submissions, in fact, there are more options from that position than with both hooks in.
Heres a video of Stephan Kesting showing how to get it. I tried this a few times last training session and I succeeded several times, despite being very raw with it.
Now is there anyone here who uses this a lot? I know you can get the RNC from there, the twister, also a couple of leg locks if you want to get crazy. I think IŽll spend this whole week working on this move and nothing else, I can see it really opening up a new arsenal for my BJJ game.
If you have any views on this subject, please share them here. And more videos would be cool as well.
