This is a great video. I just watched it and really enjoyed learning some side control concepts from one of the greats. It’s always nice to see such high level guys reinforcing simple positions and principles.
If you watch the video, listen to how Braulio breaks things down so that the “idea” of side control can transcend across all types of this particular control. Listen to how he focuses on the elbows and how “if he stops the thing that allows the next move, he doesn’t have to worry about the next move at all.” It’s a good video and worth the twenty minutes it’ll take to get through the whole thing.
