3 Ways to Finish The Omoplata in No Gi with Tom Deblass (Video)
The Omoplata Position is Powerful, But Are You Finishing The Omoplata Submission?
The omoplata is one of the most recognized and powerful submission attacks in BJJ and Submission Grappling - but it is typically used as a sweep or reversal (especially in no gi) instead of the a brutal shoulder lock submission.
Why is the omoplata so hard to finish? Well the omoplata control is a relatively easy submission control to find. But in order to finish the omoplata, essentially your hips need to be over and driving down into your opponents shoulder in order to pin it, while you add rotation to the shoulder using your legs.
The omoplata can be looked at as a kimura with your legs.
