In today's video, coach Steve Cohen demonstrates a classic half guard sweep followed by a kneebar submission. Steve starts by securing the underhook using a deceptively simple trick - bringing the elbow up and then down and between the opponent's torso and arm. He then closes all of the space between upper body and the opponent to avoid D'arce chokes and other attacks, underhooks the opponent's far knee, and rolls. To transition to the kneebar, he holds on to the far knee, bases with his free hand, and spins over the opponent to secure the kneebar.
