Anybody got any good counters to the Omoplata? I just finally learned it last week. Specifically Omoplata from the guard. We did it a little different than the way showed by Jacare on bjj.org, but the ending is the same.
The only thing I could do to resist was to sit back up and try to stack the guy while he is in the position in the first picture, and if he tried to sit up I would just roll him back to his back. Then I would try to get one knee around his head to end up over him then shake my arm out of his legs and end up in North/South on top. I think this only works on a sloppy Omoplata though. Can any of you guys help me out with this? Or tell me if this is a viable escape?
