BJJ Move #66: Some Omo Plata "Thwart" Moves

Here are a few moves to try on someone who's defending against your omo plata.

WARNING! These techniques could result in serious injury or death if practiced incorrectly or even if performed correctly. They should only be practiced with the supervision of an experienced instructor.

Omo Plata - 5 "Thwart" Moves:
-submission

Omo Plata (Thwart) Roll Against a Roller:
If your opponent somersaults over as your attempting an omo plata on his right arm, somersault over over with him, get up on top of his back and put your hips on his hips. Now you can finish the lock.

Omo Plata (Thwart) - Reverse Armlock:
You attempt an omo plata on your opponent’s right arm, but he’s grabbing his own left hand or belt tightly with his right hand so you can’t pull it out to turn the shoulder joint.
Your left leg is entangling his right arm; slide your left knee underneath his body a bit, so your left shin lies across his right upper arm and the back of his right shoulder.
Now put your right foot in between his right arm and body from the direction of his back, and you have an armlock with your legs crossed—-just pull on his hand. If he rolls over, you’ll still have it, even tighter.

Omo Plata to Wristlock:
From an omo plata on your opponent’s right arm, his right arm is bent in your lap with your legs figure-foured over his right arm.
Now using both hands on his trapped right hand, apply a “downward” wristlock (forcing his palm into the underside of his forearm by pressing downward on his knuckles).

Omo Plata (Thwart) - “The Rack” Shoulderlock:
You have managed to get your left shin underneath your opponent’s chin, but he won’t let you move to an omo plata on his right arm.
With your right knee bent, kick your right foot, bent up at the ankle, into the back of his left armpit.
Reach under your own right knee with your right hand from the outside, and grab your own left instep, drawing your left instep underneath your bent right knee-crook.
Pull your right foot through from under your opponent’s left armpit (your legs are still figure-foured around his right arm) but keep it under his chin.
Pivot clockwise on your hips so your head goes toward his right foot, and apply the shoulderlock by straightening your legs.

Omo Plata to Toehold:
From an omo plata on your opponent’s right arm, before sitting up, his right foot may be nearby.
Your left arm comes under his right shin from the outside, your elbow is bent so your hand is back near his foot, and your left hand then grabs the outside, pinky-toe edge of his right foot (your palm faces the ceiling, your elbow is pointing out to your left side).
Your right hand comes over the Achilles’ tendon of his right ankle and grabs the top of your own left wrist (“t-stack”). Now lever and turn your hands to apply the toehold.

HP Buying Kodak on Monday?
Yesterday she was shopping on Fifth Avenue. According to several published reports she spent the Wednesday night at a Broadway show Spamalot,&qu Sep.
I was surfing the various blog and I think I stayed the longest in your blog. :)
Hmmm... Maybe you could visit my website, it's Mesothelioma Settlements. I setup so that people could benefit from what I know. Maybe you are interested too.

Who is HP? Why is she buying Kodak on 5th Avenue on Monday after Spamalot? Why does it seem that your blog has become the migration stopover point to the inpatient population of Bellevue?! Most of all, what the @#$%& does ANY of it have to do with Oma Plata Thwart moves???

What is mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a rare disease caused as a result of malignant cancerous cells lining the patient's body cavities such as chest, abdominal region or the area surrounding the heart.Your legal rights:

Corporations that manufacture asbestos products have known about the dangers of asbestos-related diseases for more than six decades. In an effort to increase profit, they kept this information quiet, putting workers and families at risk.

Working with asbestos causes serious diseases. Unfortunately, many corporations thought they would be able to cut corners and make a large profit at the expense of endangering workers. Fortunately, there are laws that help to protect those individuals that have been harmed by exposure to asbestos-related products.

Spread the information and help as many as possible.
Thanks
