In this series, Kurt shares many of his secrets that have led him to having such a long and successful competitive career. Let’s take a look at some of Kurt’s favorite submissions. Here are 3 very powerful submissions for BJJ from Kurt Osiander!

#1: Demoraliser + Choke

Kurt Osiander is a firm believer in side control. He uses the position to dominate and control his opponents. He likes to start off using an “old style” type of side control found in wrestling. As shown here, Kurt is using his arm to control his opponent’s shoulder and arm and a hand always by the hip. As the guy starts to go to his knees Kurt stalls him and comes underneath his arm and feeds his lapel to his hand. Then he pulls and walks around his opponent to choke him.

#2: Lasso to Arm Bar

This is a technique Kurt has used successfully many times in competition, and has been battle tested and proven to work. Kurt Osiander starts off this demonstration in top lasso guard. The first thing he does is establish his grips and pass the leg. He rotates his opponent 90 degrees and goes straight into an arm lock. It is as easy as stepping over the head and sitting back. Notice how Kurt exploits his opponent when he keeps his leg too close. He passes the leg over to the arm currently caught in the lasso and then grabs the opposite wrist using the gi sleeve. It allows him to rotate his opponent easily, completely removing his ability to defend in the lasso guard. He puts his knee on his training partner’s belly; steps over with his other foot, and then wraps the arm. Pay attention to how tight Kurt stays to his opponent while sitting back. There is no space between him and his training partner. That is what makes it possible to hit the arm bar without giving your opponent the possibility of rolling out to escape.

#3: Loop Choke

If you are looking for a solid gi choke with plenty of variation then look no further than the loop choke. To initiate this choke, the first thing you want to do is grab your training partner’s collar with four fingers inside and thumb on the outside of the gi grip. You do not want to go too deep on your grip, keep it right around the collar bone. After he gets the loop in, Osiander places his should over his opponent so he can’t pull back out. What he does from here is open his training partner’s eblow, feed his head through the hole and roll over his shoulder, ending 90 degrees perpendicular from his opponent. At the same time he pulls his opponent over his body. Osiander does a kick stand with his leg and then squeezes, pulling with his whole body to tightly secure the choke.

You have to admit these are some pretty savage submissions. Osiander is known for his aggressive style of grappling, using pressure to torture his opponent as he reaches for one submission or another.
