2 Minute Jiu Jitsu Ep.53: Step Over Straight Arm Bar

One of the most common problems Jiu Jitsu students have when they attack a submission is losing control of the position. This can happen through a loss of balance, giving their opponent space to move, or rushing to get the tap.

The Step Over Straight Arm Bar from Kuzure Kesa Gatame is a fantastic way to attack your opponent while giving them very little to work with. On top of that, this attack is incredibly powerful as it allows you to use your whole body against your opponent’s arm.

You can learn this attack now in Episode 53 of 2 Minute Jiu Jitsu. Check it out below:

This set up for the Straight Arm Bar also pairs nicely with the Americana covered in Episode 52 of 2MJJ.
