I recently travelled to America with my wife, including a cruise from Mexico to Hawaii.

I don't know if it was an American thing, or a cruise thing, but there was a much higher proportion of people, not all of them old, using those electric scooters, walkers, and walking sticks. Some in wheelchairs as well, though able to stand for short periods and walk short distances. There were no lightweights among them, and a fair proportion were morbidly obese.

In fact, I've never seen so many fat people in one place in my entire life than I saw on the cruise ship. Men who looked like they'd shoved Swiss Balls up their polo shirts, women with asses large enough to have a system of moons orbiting them.

It's unfair to accuse people who are infirm or sick as having failed morally or personally, but you have to wonder why there seem to be so many such people from what is meant to be the richest country with the most advanced healthcare in the world.

I love the fact that I can walk, run, jump, climb. Speed, strength, agility, grace, poise and similar qualities are worth fighting to hang on to. The best things in life are free. You don't use, develop and maintain them, you lose them.

When the Segway first came out, something inside me reacted with alarm. Of course there were cars, bikes, trains, skateboards, etc. but the Segway was something else If we stop walking, it seemed, we stop living. A step (no pun intended) too far.

Are we devolving into a species that in the future will only be able to move with technological assistance?

John Will seminar 2 Oct 2011 - takedown strategy, 2 on 1

John Will seminar 2 Oct 2011 - takedown strategy, 2 on 1, etc.

This takedown strategy relies on giving you options from one basic starting point, and a small number of moves that can be applied to a large variety of situations, rather than having to have a different move for each situation.

Our basic stance is to have our right foot forward, whatever position he takes up. Also, we should all learn to shoot from both sides.

Basic penetration step - start drilling from a square stance, not rectangular. You have to be close enough to hit him with a right cross.

Drop (level change) - step in, shoot with your chest. Elbows stay at your sides. Grab his knees. Elbows stay at your sides. Knee goes to the floor, constant forward pressure. Hang off him like a lion dragging down an antelope, that will stop your knee hitting the floor hard. Keep driving into him.

Next, start from parallel stance, your left foot comes back a half step and stamps hard into the ground, change levels and shoot. don’t step back too far or you cannot close the distance. Can use this after a kick by stamping back with the kicking foot to shoot  with the other - don’t step back too far.

Drills learn to shoot under pressure. Have your partner punch at you while you are in the shell, shoot from there. All similar drills we did in John’s seminar on the shell.

Visual rather than auditory cues - you jump and do the twist, when he twitches his right shoulder you shoot. In martial arts we are conditioned to rely on auditory cues and commands way too much.

Much better to drill the setup and shoot rather than taking the guy down every time, so as to increase the possible number of reps for a given period of time. Probably less overall trauma on the shootee.

Double leg - use him, lean on him to stop your knee crashing into the floor.

Outside single leg

His L leg is forward. you R foot steps outside of his L foot. Drop your R knee to the floor next to and behind his, and at the same time your R hand goes around his leg to the outside - hand and knee move together. Your L foot sweeps around counterclockwise so your L foot and his feet are roughly in line - not too far out with the L foot  because you want ot be able to stand up on it in a second.Join your hands low in a guillotine-tyle grip. Posture is erect to avoid the sprawl, head up and on his hip.

You are now out of the “corridor of death”, i.e. the space straight in front of him where you are are vulnerable to knees, strikes with both hands, guillotines, getting sprawled on, etc.

To stand up, don’t put your weight on your R foot. Instead, lean and put your weight on him and drive with with your L leg hard, then brake hard with your R foot, so his leg stays in place while his body keeps moving, hopefully giving you the opportunity to stuff his L foot under your L armpit.

To take him down, throw your R hand in a HUGE uppercut to the sky, followed up immediately in a continuous movement with a low kick with your R leg to take out his L leg and dump him. The bigger the uppercut, the less kick is required. He lands on his back and you have already passed his guard.

High crotch to single leg

If his R leg is forward, do almost the same initial move. The R knee goes to the floor inside his R foot, the R hand wraps around his leg. This time you L foot circles forward to the outside of his R foot, once again removing you from the corridor of death. Put your weight and lean on him again, driving with your L leg to stand, as you transfer your R hand to the outside of his L knee. Lift his R leg to the sky with your L, block his L knee with your R hand, drive with your head as you run him sideways to your R and take him down with a high double leg, again passing his guard on your feet.

This is called a “high C”, though the real wrestling high C involves you lifting your R arm right up high in his crotch, standing up and lifting him off the ground and overhead. Not quite what we want in BJJ or MMA, where we want to pass his guard on our feet.

So the Outside single and high C are both very similar moves in different circumstances. Think of spiralling the knee to the ground rather than dropping it straight down to save on trauma to the knee.

Setting up the takedown from the clinch

Get a single neck tie on him with your R, inside elbow control on his R arm with your L, R foot forward, ready to shoot. Your footwork should never take you out of shooting position. So if dragging the guy around, we always lead with the back foot.

So, to get his L foot forward, we step L and back with our L foot and pull his head with our R hand. R leg remains forward in shooting position. If/when his L foot comes forward, we drop to our R knee and take the outside single.

To get his R foot forward, our L foot circles back and to the R and we pull his arm with our L hand. R foot remains forward in shooting position. If when his R foot comes forward, we drop to our R knee and take the high C.

If we can’t get him to move either foot forward, and his feet remain parallel - shoot the basic double leg.

2 on 1 defense against neck tie, MT clinch

He grabs our neck with his R hand, grab his R wrist with our R hand, step outside his R foot with our L foot, circle our L foot back. Roll the  L shoulder  over his R arm and put our weight on it to dislodge his grip. Under hook his bicep and put pressure on his shoulder with ours.

Same thing with MT clinch. Best to start with hands up, so you can get your hand in and grab his wrist before he has time to really set the Plum in concrete.

Keep circling back to your R and cranking down on his shoulder to stop him getting posture, throwing strikes and knees, etc., until you are ready to hit the next move. 

2 on 1 to single leg

Get the 2 on 1 and keep driving him down until your face is so close to his R knee you can taste it. It is then easy just to grab the leg, bump him and get the high head-inside single leg trapping his lower leg between your thighs. You should be able to trap both arm and leg if you get close enough to his leg before changing the grips.

2 on 1 to guillotine choke

Get his head down low, then just reach around his neck with the R hand and move to the guillotine choke.

“Ten finger” guillotine

The basic guillotine has a pretty basic and well-known counter - the guy just puts his R arm over your L shoulder and makes you lift his whole body instead of just his neck.

This variation prevents that counter.

Wrap his neck with your R arm as for a basic guillotine. Your R palm is facing your chest.

Your L hand joins your R in an S grip, thumb rotates inward and down, your L palm facing away. Keep the S grip fairly loose.

Now put your L elbow on the top of his R shoulder. He cannot reach up eith his R arm any more. You have nullified the counter.

To finish the choke, twist your R forearm clockwise as you lift up.

John also showed us a nice flow from fence, into 2 on 1, into gooseneck come-along.

When learning techniques, after you have learned them step by step, try to practice them SLOWLY but continuously. Don’t go faster than you can think. don’t even roll faster than you can think.

John answered questions at the beginning about:

1. Escaping front control

Remember, you are trying move you feet and body away from his, so don’t bridge or shrimp! Practice the reverse hip escape.

If your hands and elbows are in the correct position, between you and him, use the pendulum escape. Try and see daylight each side as you pendulum.

Don’t get in the position where his elbows are on the ground in front of yours. But if you do, grab his belt and move yourself away until your arms are straight, the back-roll over a shoulder and get the hook in on that side. Transfer to tho other shoulder, get the other hook in and end up on his back.

2. Escaping headlock and switchbase side control.

Headlock - bridge into him, pushing his head toward his feet, pull your elbow out, go to his back.

Switchbase side control. He is on your R. Per last seminar, pinch his hips between your near elbow,and your hip so he is attached to you, you move one inch, he moves one inch. Feet up close to him. Bridge hard into him, move your L foot up to your R and slide your R knee underneath him so he is in your lap. Let your L leg go limp and shimmy under so he ends up on your L on his back with you on top.

John Will seminar 20 Aug 2011 - D'arce choke, Deep Half Guard

John Will seminar 20 Aug 2011

D'arce Choke

Ideal Position

He is on his R side, L arm elevated toward his head. You have side control on his R. Your R arm goes under his L armpit and under his neck till your R hand pokes out behind him. put your L arm on his back so his R hand grabs the crook of your elbow to close the noose, L palm on his back. Sprawl on his L shoulder and squeeze your arms to finish.

You can allow him to escape flat side control to this position. You can drop on your R hip so as to get your arm deeper.

From flat Side Control

on his R, your R hand at his R hip. Take your chest over the top of his L forearm and snag it with your rib cage, move backward so as to hoist him up on his side, use your R shoulder/chest on his L elbow to get his L arm in a good position. From here choke him as in 1.

From Head to Head

Sprawl on him with your L arm on the right side of his neck. Your R arm overhooks his L arm. Get your R elbow on the floor to prevent the switch out - move your body to your R off centre to enable this. Pull his L elbow forward and next to his head, and walk your feet out to the L to set up the proper angle for the roll. Grip tight and roll under him, pulling him over the top of you, onto his back and then onto his R side. Relax the grip and run around to side control on his R. Your arms are in position to fix the choke.

From H2H - inverted

Same setup as the last - this time, instead of pulling him over you, just fall onto your R side and pull his head to you with both hands like a Thai clinch. Push your R arm to the ceiling, and set up the Darce from underneath. Don't pull him over! you want to move under him without affecting his position at all.

From side/back control

You are sprawled on him again - this time weld your L elbow to your L hip and circle anticlockwise until your L forearm is on the back of his neck with your bodyweight on it . Your R arm overhooks his L arm and goes under his chest, then up the right side of his neck so your R hand meets your L hand. Keep your L forearm horizontal and do not reach for the R hand with the L. You now should have side/back control on him. Push down with the L arm and pull with the R to put him on his R side, in the ideal Darce choke position.

Guard pass counter

You are sitting up, he is passing around to your R. Block his R shoulder with your L hand, but let him continue to pass. Your L arm goes around his neck like a guillotine choke, your R arm overhooks his. He can go to side control here, keep tight to ensure he can't get his L arm over your body but it stays trapped on your R side. From here you can walk your feet counterclockwise, and when your are parallel bridge and roll him to your L, and run around to Side Control on his R, with your arms in ideal Darce choke position.


His defence to the Darce is posture - arching his head back and away from you. To counter this, put your L fist on the ground and grab your L wrist with your R hand. Use this grip to pull his head and bend his spine toward you, optionally using your L knee to hold his head in place. Finish the choke from this position. 

Deep Half Guard

Against combat base 1

His right knee is up, he is on his R foot. Your L hook goes on his R ankle on the inside and grip his  r shin/ankle with your L hand on the outside. Roll back and lift his foot directly over the top, for the Big Step move similar to that used for the X guard setup. Circle is totally in a vertical plane, not out to the side. As you lift his foot, your R arm goes between his legs to encircle his R thigh. Once he steps, release your legs and circle under him to end up on your back, your head on his L upper thigh as if using it as a pillow, both hands controlling his knee and both shins controlling his ankle. Pushing back into him stops him stepping over your head and cements the position.

Against combat base 2

His has combat base, R knee up on his R foot. Your R leg goes between his legs so his R foot ends up in the crook of your R knee. Use the R leg to pull on his foot, R hand goes between his legs, spin under him to deep half guard (drill - you sweep him, then get into combat base and allow him to do the deep half guard setup  and sweep to you. Repeat.)

From classic half guard

You have half guard on his R leg, both feet to the outside, R ankle triangled by L knee, underhook with your L arm, up on your R elbow. Dive your R arm between his legs and use both legs to "rocking chair" his foot off the ground. Go to deep half guard, head on the pillow of his L thigh. The joined legs allow you to lift better than you could just with your R adductor. You have to let go with the legs to be able to grab the ankle with them.

From underneath mount

Elbows in. Get on your L side, L leg goes flat, L knee pushes his R shin out to the side. Snag his R ankle with your R heel and drag it across your L shin. Separate your L knee and R ankle - your L knee shin is under and near his L knee, your R foot is on top close to his R ankle. When you go back to flat, this gives you leverage to lift his R knee enough to get your R arm under his R leg. Grab his knee with both hands, and walk your feet so your body turns counterclockwise until your head is on the pillow in deep half guard.

In the deep half guard position, your L arm is vulnerable to armlocks, kimuras, etc. You can mitigate this by hiding it under his leg, gripping your R wrist with your L hand. This give you a better position for rolling him as well in some respects.

Sweep 1

The Homer Simpson. Walk your feet (not your hips) around to the left. Then spin R to your knees. He should fall on his butt for the sweep.

Sweep 2

If sweep 1 gets stalled, drive your R arm and hand to the ceiling and bridge and roll him to your L, putting him face down.

John Will Seminar 3 July 2011 Side control escapes and counters

Warm up

Hip escape - engage the elbow
Hip escape  - head moves offline, hips move straight back
Reverse hip escape
Bear walk
Bear walk, sit out
He sprawls. bear walk up, peek out, get his back

Side control escape

Think of 5% increments of improvement

1. He has your head and the far underhook on your R side. Move your ear to your hip to get your R elbow in. Move our feet near his knee. Get hip to hip this maximises the effect of the bridge. Bridge into him to create invisible space. Get your R knee in his hip quickly. Move your head away pushing with knee and both hands.Crossover to guard.

2. He switches his base, feet toward the head. Get that R elbow in his hip. Move your feet up to his butt, pinch his hips between your R elbow and hip. Bridge into him to lift him, step your L foot toward and under him, then slide your R knee under him to put him into the cradle. Shimmy your hips under him so he rolls onto his back.

3. He is passing your guard to your R. Roll onto your L side in the fetal position. He is on his knees. Go to your knees and overhook his L leg with your R arm. Tripod up on your head and feet, push with your R arm, palm down, fingers facing away from the direction of push for maximum leverage, and walk clockwise around to his back until he falls on his back. Get SC with base switched toward his feet. (From here, run around to front control).

4.As before but he pushes into you so you can’t walk around. Use his push to slide your knee under him to the cradle and roll him over you.

5. He gets a position to your side as before but his L leg is back, R knee is in your stomach (if it isn’t pull guard) so you can’t overhook his L leg. Use your R hand to lift his R foot, snag it with your L leg and triangle your L foot off with your R leg. Bump up to get your L arm out and grab his lat/belt. Grab his L knee with your R hand, Move your hips R to push his R knee toward his L. You should be able to roll him over you from here.

6. You snag the leg, but he tries to run away. You have the underhook and might get his back. If he wizzers your R arm with his L, push into him and try to knock him over. If he pushes back to resist, dive under him and roll him over you as before.

Giving less than 100%

I enjoyed the free wrestling in Peter King's class last night. Escaped Sonny's first formidable guillotine choke attempt and passed his guard, though he tapped me with a second guillotine right at the end of the round. The local teenage prodigy, Andris, got my back, somehow I escaped that to half guard and fended him off for the rest of the round.

I think I'm going to enjoy the Jiu Jitsu journey more if I ease up on the intensity. In the second half of my sixth decade, I can't beat the twenty- and thirty-somethings with speed, strength or cardio. If I try to give each round my maximum, I end up too exhausted to wrestle well next round, plus I make too many mistakes thrashing around. From now on I want to try to stay below ninety percent, really watch what's going on, make my movements strategic and deliberate, work more defence and escapes, but really work them rather than just "try whatever it takes not to get my guard passed." Tap out more. I could have resisted Sonny's second guillotine a bit longer, but what was the point? It was a great guillotine, well executed. Deserved the tap. Last time I fought my way out of a choke (actually two, an anaconda on a Wednesday followed by a Peruvian necktie on the Sunday) I had a sore neck for a week. Darko says, "I want to be doing this when I'm eighty" - me too, and I'm a lot closer to eighty than he is.

There has to be some sort of corollary of the 80/20 rule that applies here. Well executed technique shouldn't take 100% effort. Eighty and certainly, ninety percent, should be enough. One hundred percent brain, perhaps, but not one hundred percent brawn.

John Will seminar 16 April 2011 - attacking from the turtle

The seminar was at George Adams’ gym at the West Pennant Hills Valley Community Centre. Simon Farnsworth and his son and Sean Kirkwood also attended.

Correct way to roll to the turtle

From flat on your back R hand is across protecting the L side of your neck, L arm is flat on the mat. Roll to your L (away from an imaginary attacker) over your L arm; your L arm prevents him getting a hook in on that side, the R hand, stops him attacking your collar. Bring your R knee up to your R elbow, then your L knee up to your L elbow.

Single leg takedown - cartwheel over to the bay

Get head inside, both arms around his lower L thigh. R hand is palm down. Hug tight, gable grip, and come up high on your toes, butt in the air weight on your shoulder pushing into his leg. This puts weight on his leg and keeps it flexed so he cannot sprawl. This also makes it difficult for him to attack with anacondas, clock chokes, etc. because your body is not in a horizontal plane.

Walk around to your L until you can grab his heel with your L hand. Now push him over his shin (cylinder). Get your head onto the pocket (on his R hip) stay side on keeping shoulder control, walk up on your toes, getting your hips up in preparation to jump over, put your L hand on his R top knee, slightly inside. When he turns toward you to put you in the guard, push his knee down and cartwheel jump over to land sitting on both his knees, your feet in “the bay” behind his knees. Reach up with your L to grab the back of his collar. Wait. When he turns back toward you, put him in side control.

Single leg Go behind

You shoot the single, hips up in the air. as you circle L, he keeps circling away, so you cannot grab his L heel. Change direction, drop onto your R hip and get your elbow to the ground on the far side of his lower leg, then get back to the position with your hips up on both feet . Cup his knee with both hands, and drive his hip to the floor with your shoulder. Get his back.

Iranian & drill

You shoot the single, he sprawls. It is IMPORTANT to keep you elbows in, particularly the L elbow, so you can use it as a support now. Keep hold of his leg with your R arm,walk up on your toes to get your hips high in the air. Now shoot in underneath him, bringing your knees in front of you ears - you should definitely move your whole body forward - so your head ends up between his legs and his hips are on your shoulders. Now sit up straight on your knees - DO NOT LIFT YOUR HIPS OFF YOUR HEELS. You should not have to lift his body weight, but his COG should be back far enough so you are just sliding him off your back. Keep hold of his R thigh with your R hand, grab his R heel with your L hand. Just bring his R leg around to your L side and  put him on his back with your head in the pocket. Lift your hips and prepare to cartwheel jump over into the bay same as before.

Drill - A does the Iranian on B. Keeping his hips down. B does a forward roll off A’s back and both turn to face each other. Now it’s B’s turn. Repeat.

Double leg takedown

In ALL double legs, elbows stay next to your hips - do NOT reach out, shoot with your chest. Get your head high, looking up, preferably in the armpit for maximum leverage. Once you have his knees, move out to the side away from where you are going to put him. Put him down where you were. Head in pocket, cartwheel jump over as before.

Switch out & drill

He is sprawled in front of you. He gets L hand in behind your R upper arm. quickly move out to your R side so you can see air, then all together grab his L arm with your R elbow, come up on your L foot, switch out as far as you can . Do not push into him - you want to disappear out from under him so he falls straight down to a faceplant on the mat.. You want your head on his back but shoulders on the floor. Once therepush into him with your legs, reach up with your arms, thread your legs, turning toward his legs, and get your R knee into his hip and then consolidate your side control..

Switch out if the guy keeps hugging

If he gets both grips at once and hangs on when you switch, he will land on his back with you on top of him and probably get winded. Arms up (worship the sun god), turn towards his legs into Side Control and you should get a crossface by wrapping your L arm under his head.

Side back grab the arm and roll

He gets side back control on your L. You should still be protecting your L side of your neck with your R hand. If he reaches into your R armpit with his R hand, trap it with your R elbow, jump onto your R side, and roll him over you. Turn toward his legs, use your L elbow to push against his head and bend his spine as you move to side control.

Do NOT reach for his arm to trap it. He can get an underhook, move back away from you and pull you into side control. Do not go flat, as if he sprawls on you then you are in trouble.

Side back grab he sprawls - frame up and reverse Curly walk

Get in the habit of doing the above move and also putting your L fist on the floor with your elbow up in his abdomen, forming a frame. You can then use the elbow to assist in rolling him. If he sprawls here, use that frame to “reverse Curly walk” out under his R side. Stay on your side. Either attack his arm with a hammer lock or if you lose the arm get his back.

Grab the arm block with the knee roll to kimura and various guards and single leg

He has side/back control on your L. You are protecting the L side of your neck with your R hand. He tries to attack your neck with his L, grab his L wrist with your R hand, getting a solid post on your R elbow. Get your L hand between your bodies and wrap your L arm outside his L arm. Slide your R knee up to block his R knee with your shin. so you have the space to roll to guard. Roll onto your back keep the shin blocking his torso and grab the kimura on his L arm. Hook his R foot with your L heel to stop him rolling.

This is an extremely versatile move. If you can grab the L arm with your  R hand, post on your R elbow and block his R knee with your R shin, you can set up a number of guards and other moves, e.g.
  • Grab his R thigh with your L arm and set up a single leg or go behind
  • Decide on your sweep or takedown and find a way to set it up from here
  • Get your L underhook, hook his R shin with your L heel, go to half guard and grab his R foot with your R hand to set up an old school sweep
  • Get your L underhook, move back and insert your L hook, setting up a hooking sweep

He pushes in, sit up with post, and roll him

He is on your L side. Grab his L arm, come up on your R elbow as before, block his knee with your shin. He really pushes in - your L arm goes under his R armpit, and points over behind you as you sit up and turn to your L. Come up on your R hand and keep pushing with it as for a sitting rollover sweep. Roll him over you onto his back. Your legs go flat, your upper body goes vertical.

His knees are on the ground grab far leg push with the hand and walk around - crab away to set up

He is on your R side in side/back control.  Same as before protect your neck, grab his arm. If both his knees are on the ground. bring your L arm on front of them and grab around his L knee. Post out to the side with your R hand, fingers pointing away. Hips up, on your toes, and walk around to the L, pushing hard with your R hand, little pushes until he falls over and you get side control.

If he counters by pushing into you, switch to the previous move (sit up, post and roll him)

John Will Seminar 20 Mar 2011 - Hooks and hooking sweeps

Tabata warm up

10 sec work 10 sec rest 5 exercises - squat, pushup, burpee, elbow sitout, situp.
Strive for continuous movement - no stops or pauses - and perfect form.
can do 10/10, 20/10, 30/10, ..., 20/10, 10/10 as a pyramid style tabata workout.

Hook - glue

Get both hooks in. Get an underhook, grab his belt and pull him HARD onto the hook, so your shin/knee is driving into his hip. Keep him there as he moves around and tries to pass - sweep when he gives it to you.

Arm drag from hooks in to reverse hooking sweep

Grab the elbow with both hands and pull it in a circular path. grab his belt and once again weld the reverse hook to his opposite hip by pulling him HARD onto the hook. Sweep him at leisure. Underhook the near arm and the far arm as you move to SC.

Cross grip

Get his sleeves one at a time, not both together. Grabbing the first sleeve with one or both hands will make him want to bring his other hand in to attempt to strip the grips. You can then grab the other sleeve. You now have the possibility of doing an arm drag to either side ... and then grabbing the belt and gluing the hook

Elbow power to get the arm drag

You have cross grip but he is grabbing your jacket and you cannot get the arm drag. Bridge, lift your hips, and as you drop use your elbow with your bodyweight behind it to drive his arms across. Slightly easier to drive with the elbow on the side with the top arm. Come up on the other elbow and grab his belt.

Cross grip double hook sweep

From crossgrip ( his L hand on top), open his arms, turn on your R side, pass your L leg over his R arm and hook the L foot under his L armpit. Hook your R foot inside his L knee. Go flat again. Use the R reverse hook to pull him off his base then use the R hook to sweep him to your L. Use the L thigh to trap his R arm so he can't roll away as you move to side control hunting the far side underhook.

He stands, grab collar open guard, use knee

You have your hooks in, he is holding you down. He stands. If you can, grab his R sleeve with your L and his R collar with your R. Pull him down savagely by the collar so he can't get posture. Move your L foot to his R hip, use your R foot to push his L knee away from you so he has a staggered, twisted stance. Push his R arm across to your R using your L knee, reach up and grab his belt, also putting in your L hook and applying the glue. Let him try to pass or dislodge himself and sweep him when the opportunity presents itself.

He stands, you miss the collar - reverse X on knee, use reverse elbow.

As above, he stands in your hooks, you miss  his collar and he gets posture. You have a grip with your L on his R sleeve. Move your R hook to his R leg - underneath the L foot. Clamp his knee with both ankles. Use the back of your R elbow to push his R arm across to the R, then grab his belt with the L hand, inserting the L reverse hook. Pull on the belt and lift with the hook to throw him overhead. (????)

Back to basic double hook sweep

As before. Apply the GLUE. If he puts his free hand on your knee,clamp it under your arm and lie on your arm. His body will now be so twisted the he almost sweeps himself. If he is not giving you the arm, use the belt and hook to pull him forward so his hand goes on the ground. Here you can overhook the arm and trap it as before, or underhook it and pull it up by taking the underhook hand up to and behind your head.
