Osvaldo begins this free Gameness Instructional Video in his blue Gameness AIR gi. His opponent is wearing a white Gameness 2013 Pearl gi. Both items can be found online at www.gameness.com. The technique of the day is an armbar taught by Osvaldo from the guard. Unlike most armbars, this one can be completed with trapping your opponent’s arm with an over-hook and throwing your leg over his/her leg to force the submission.

Step 1:

Starting in the full guard, Osvaldo starts the technique by pulling his opponent’s arms off his stomach in a sweeping motion and grabbing his/her head. He overhooks the arm on the side of his opponent that he will be performing the armbar.

Step 2:

He releases his grip in the head so that his opponent can posture up, but Osvaldo keeps control of the arm. He switches his grip from an overhook to just grabbing his opponent’s elbow. To increase the level of control, Osvaldo pinches his elbow in close to his side so that his opponent will have a harder time pulling his/her arm free.

Step 3:

Osvaldo now places his foot (on the side that the arm is controlled) and uses it to push off and create an angle to his opponent. With his opposite hand, Osvaldo reaches under his opponent’s leg to further pull his body into a position and angle to attack the arm.

Step 4:

Osvaldo now swings his leg up and over his opponent’s head to a more traditional armbar position. With the targeted arm still under Osvaldo’s arm, he can create more pressure on the joint and complete the submission without having to apply as much pressure. If you are not immediately able to achieve the submission, you can begin to hip up into the joint to tap your opponent.

Osvaldo Augusto Quexinho Teaches a BJJ Counterattack to a Sweep

Posted by admin

Aug 27, 2013 5:19:00 PM

Osvaldo Augusto Queixinho teaches a new technique in this Gameness Free Instructional Video that can be used whenever your opponent attempts to sweep you from guard. Osvaldo is wearing his competition Gameness AIR blue gi in this video, and his training partner is wearing his white Gameness Pearl 2013 gi.

Step 1:

When in your opponent’s guard, they will attempt a sweep where they grab your collar and sleeve, and use their legs to roll you onto your back. This technique is a counterattack from this sweep, and begins as your back hits the mats. Once you hit the mat after your opponent finishes the sweep, keep your arms straight to ensure that your opponent does not manage to make it into a mount position and get on top of you. This will result in you losing the opportunity to complete this counterattack technique.

Step 2: 

From this position, bring your knee up the middle until it is between the legs of your opponent. With your outside arm, control your opponent’s other leg with an over-hook. This will prevent your opponent from both closing the space between you, and from freeing his/her leg from the hold.

Step 3:

Slide your grip down from the calf of your opponent, down to his/her ankle. With your outside foot, move it up until it is pressing against your opponent’s hip, and over their leg. As you can probably tell from here, the counterattack is going to be a straight ankle lock. Push your opponent away with the leg in his/her hip until they fall backwards. Ensure that you maintain your grip on the ankle. To complete the submission, make sure your opponent cannot come back up on top of you, roll to the outside, and straighten your back.

This submission will put pressure on your opponent’s ankle and force him/her to tap out.

Osvaldo Augusto Queixinho Teaches a BJJ Guard Pass

Posted by admin

Jul 23, 2013 3:51:00 PM

Osvaldo Augusto Queixinho agreed to share more of this world-class Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu hints, tips, and techniques in this Gameness free instructional video. The technique that Osvaldo shares today is a guard pass to achieve a side-control position on your opponent or training partner.

Osvaldo is wearing his favorite blue AIR gi in this video, and his training partner is wearing his Gameness white 2013 Pearl gi. Both items can be found on the www.gameness.com website store!

Step 1: 

The first step is to grab both of your opponent’s collars in a thumb-in grip. Use these grips to push into your opponent’s chest so that he/she cannot rise up into you. Once you have these grips established, remove one grip and switch it to your opponent’s sleeve. Pull the arm controlling the sleeve back into your belly and into the inside of your opponent’s thigh.

Step 2:

On the same side as you have control of your opponent’s sleeve, transfer your weight from that knee to your foot. This movement will create a “table top” for your opponent’s leg. After your foot is securely on the ground, do the same movement on the other side so that you are standing.

Step 3:

At this point, release the grip on your opponent’s lapel and posture up. Now that you have a free hand, push down firmly on your opponent’s knee until you break his/her guard open. With the guard open, pin that leg to the ground and take a step backwards.

Step 4:

Dive your body forward while swimming your arms underneath your opponent’s legs until both his/her legs are on your shoulders and your hands are nearly clasped together. Now, grip your opponent’s collar with your opposite hand with a thumb-in grip. Maintain the top pressure and transfer your weight from your feet to your toes.

Step 5:

Walk your feet around your opponent until your body clears his/her legs and guard. Once you have passed, correct your position to a good side control by cross-facing your opponent’s head.

Osvaldo Augusto Queixinho Teaches a Sweep from Guard

Posted by admin

Jul 9, 2013 2:42:00 PM

A Scissor Sweep is a reversal from your guard that will land you in a mount position on your opponent. Osvaldo Augusto Queixinho uses this Gameness Instructional Video to demonstrate his method of completing the sweep on his training partner.

Osvaldo wears his blue Gameness AIR gi during this technique demonstration, and his training partner is wearing his white Gameness Pearl gi.

Step 1:

Starting with a closed guard around your opponent, the sweep begins when you gain control of both of his/her sleeves. At this point, choose which side you will attempt to sweep your opponent to, and release that sleeve grip. Instead, change your grip to the opposite collar. This means that you have the sleeve and collar controlled on one side.

Step 2:

Now that you have your grips, break open your guard, and plant your far foot onto the mat. You will be pushing off this foot for the leverage of the sweep. Scoot your body out the same direction as your foot in a shrimping motion to create space.

Step 3:

At this point, transition your body from lying on your side to supporting your bodyweight on your elbow. Slide the knee of the planted foot across your opponent’s midsection so that your knee is almost all the way across his/her body.

Step 4:

The leg opposite of the planted leg will kick backwards under your opponent’s base while your other leg will kick the opposite direction across his/her body. This movement will resemble a scissoring motion and cause your opponent to fall from their knees to their back.

Step 5:

Time your movement so that you move to a mount at the same time that your opponent lands on his/her back. This will require you to use the momentum of the sweep to help pull you on top to achieve a dominant, mount position.
