Technique Video of the Day: The Calf Crank/Slicer from Arm Triangle Position

You know, if everyone stopped hating on Eddie Bravo and Joe Hogan for their personal beliefs related to “the heefer,” they might be able to learn a thing or two when it comes to Jiu-Jistu. But here at Cagepotato, we are all about putting judgments aside for the sake of the sport. In the above video, Bravo demonstrates a beautiful bait-and-switch submission on Joanne of, and though he may not be up to par on his English (it’s sunk, Eddie) there is no denying the man’s abilities to pull off some brilliant transitions on the ground.

Today, he teaches us that a failed submission attempt does not always mean going back to square one. Let’s say your arms are blown out and you find yourself unable to finish your opponent with an arm triangle choke. Well, as Bravo puts it, “Just because you can’t squeeze anymore, doesn’t mean you can’t pull anymore.” So, when you’ve come to this realization, simply slide your foot back between your opponent’s legs, placing yourself into quarter guard. Bravo points out that it is crucial you don’t extend your leg and put yourself in half guard for this move to be successful. Next, figure four your legs around one of your opponent’s. Then, using as much Jedi force as you can muster, release the arm triangle, roll onto your back, and pull the shit out of your opponent’s foot until they are forced to tap or walk funny for the rest of their life. Just ask Joe Lauzon.

It really is an awesome little move for any of you BJJ practitioners out there, but be sure to try this out on your little brothers and sisters before attempting something so bold in an actual competition and looking like a fool. Now, here’s some Bob Marley. Enjoy it.

Eddie Bravo has said all along he inst any kind of super athlete. He relies on tricks and his own flexibility. Even when he was in high school wrestling. He has put a lot of thought into some of these transitions. I think the names he comes up for positions simply help him organize everything in his head and in turn, relate the material to other people.
His dedication to "no gi jujitsu" has given him some insight as well.
I think the haters should roll with him once for about 3 mins. See how much smack they can talk after that.

I'm gonna go ahead and say that Eddie Bravo is living the life.
(Pretty sure he has a recording studio too.)

Just some info for Brock Lesnar and the rest of you guidos, the arm triangle isn't about strength and squeezing. You lock it in, then walk your hips around towards your opponents head, and the leverage will choke them out.
Of course, if I was demonstrating on Joanne, I'd have to use the ole boner choke, if you know what I mean. And I named my boner Ezekiel, just to impress the ladies.

Wait, so "don't stick it in any deeper?" Maybe that's my problem.
Anyway, I love his coaching style.
