This simple tweak turns a regular closed guard into a closed guard on steroids.
Luis Heredia Black Belt Joel Bouhey’s Falcon Guard Opens Up A Ton Of Easy Sweeps & Submissions They Will Never See Coming.
The Closed Guard has become a stalling position. Guys get there, and the fight stops.. It becomes ugly.. boring. Joel Bouhey, a very well respected black belt from Hawaii has come up with a very nice tweak for this position. By overhooking one arm and connecting it to his other arm, he develops superior leverage that is very hard to manage. Once he gets this grip he has a huge advantage as you will see.
Joel originally developed this position for MMA – he completely envelops the person he is going against from his own back. The guy on top is helpless to defend.
