Basic Omoplata and Backtake from Omoplata.

BJJ Techniques with Andrew Laxa.

Andrew demonstrates a basic BJJ technique called the Omoplata. He also shows a great option to take the back from the Omoplata position.

The Omoplata is a highly accessible attack. As your opponents become more skilled, it becomes harder and harder to finish. With that said, it is always best to have a few options to go to if your opponent defends well. It’s also good to keep in mind that anytime you have an omoplata, you are not far from an armbar or a triangle choke.

Enjoy and Train hard! Ossss!
