UV5 – Groundwork – a1) and a2)

The attacker is in the guard, and after attacking has been pulled into a close position with one arm trapped and a hand or forearm behind the head. At this point the attacker pushes themselves up onto their arms to try to get up

a1) – As the attacker pushes up, use the shrimp motion to pull the hips out to one side while introducing the knee. At the same time as pulling the trapped arm in to remove the support, make a scissors motion with both legs to roll the attackers body as they fall and end up on top

a2) – As the attacker pushes up, use the shrimp motion to pull the hips out to one side while introducing the knee and placing it in the centre of the attacker’s chest. Pull down with the hand behind the neck and push with the knee to create a lock on the back of the neck. Then sweep as above
