After a recent BJJ match where I was faced against a bigger opponent. Many of you commented with several questions.
One of those questions pertained to holding side control against a bigger opponent and also asking what I was doing with my legs.
In this video I show a few simple tips for holding side control against a bigger opponent.
One of the biggest tips I would like to drive home through this video is the idea that even when you have a strong position in side control. Be careful about squeezing too tight.
When you’re up against a person with a sizable difference in strength, weight, size, etc in Brazilian Jiujitsu. It’s smart to always be on the lookout for the roll.
I show some tips on how to apply pressure using the body in lieu of just squeezing the arms.
Hope this video helps you hold side control against bigger stronger opponents.
