All right, guys. So I'm going to show you the ankle lace standing open guard. It's a cool open session moves. It breaks the monotony of training and who knows, you can catch it in a fight someday. So I'm here always at the control of my opponent. I'm never leaning forward, because he can kick me. I'm always with the hip forward. Before I go into anything, I want to soften him up.

I'm going to be kicking the legs, always trying to cause damage, kicking the legs, kicking the legs. I cannot stress causing damage too much. From here I'm going to reach in with my right arm, palm down and wrap his other leg this way. Then I'm going to come with the blade of my forearm up, gable grip my hands, fall over.

You can triangle legs if you want. You can go to position one, like I am here. And then I'm not going to turn. I'm going to cause his shin bone into his calf, so I'm going to pull it towards me. It's a very painful move. I'm going to pull and then I can turn if I want. Pull and turn and that, guys is the ankle lace from open guard.
