The “The Hippoplata Twister Attack” Is The Coolest Submission You’ve Never Done

The Hippoplata is a fairly recent move in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.  This move is commonly used to gain advantageous position when rolling with an opponent who is pressure passing your guard.

The key to executing this move perfectly is timing and precision. If executed properly, the opponent’s body will be sent flying, allowing you to gain a dominant position and set up a submission.

The Hippoplata is a great option that you should consider for sweeping, taking the back, or ending up on top.  It can be used to counter an opponent’s guard pass. It is a surprise move that is sure to catch your opponent off-guard, giving you the advantage in any BJJ match.
