Toe Hold Counter From Inside Omoplata & Pass: Rodrigo ‘Comprido’ Medeiros

Composed, calculated, charismatic, and colorful are words that come to mind when one thinks of Rodrigo “Comprido” Medieros. Just before the 2015 IBJJF Pan Ams, the multiple time World Champion stopped by JJM HQ, much to our delight. With our new mat area set up, we had great anticipation of what’s to come and the Brasa Team stand out did not disappoint. With such a vast amount of knowledge about the game, Comprido gave us a breakdown of how to properly do a toe hold, as well as the numerous positions it can be obtained from. The teaching skill displayed by Comprido instantly showed us why former UFC Champion, Brock Lesnar, selected him as his jiu-jitsu coach. If you’d like to find more information on Comprido, his school, seminars, camps, etc., you can go to

In this video Comprido demonstrates a toe hold counter, as well as a guard pass from when your opponent has you stuck inside an omoplata. Assisting him is fellow black belt, Marcelo Barbosa.
