What Will You Learn?
Renato Canuto is one of the most talked about fighters on the planet right now, and it’s because of his high-flying, nonstop aggressiveness, a style that makes him a gunslinger among gunslingers.
In a sport that can be bogged down by people playing advantages or decisions, Renato Canuto is constantly pushing for the submission, and his results speak for themselves; An IBJJF World No-Gi Championship, silver in the gi at Worlds, and a double champion at Kasai!
What makes all of this even more impressive is that he’s only been a black belt since 2016, so for him, the sky is the limit. The fundamental cornerstone of Renato’s game is the threat of submission, he turns every position into a dangerous one, and he’s got one of the best armbars in the world. It doesn’t matter what position he is in, Renato can flow and move and find that arm, leaving scores of opponents tapping out. Now, this up-and-coming black belt is here with BJJ Fanatics to show how you too can become an armbar master with this comprehensive video set.
The armbar is one of the first moves that most of us learn, and it’s one of the oldest and most proven submission locks in all of grappling. Still, how many of us ever really unlock its full potential? How many of us are able to hunt that arm with precision? Now you can become the arm collector in your gym, with Renato’s guidance. You may know a few positions where you can get the classic armbar, but now you can have dozens of places to attack the arm and finish the fight. From those classic spots like closed guard and full mount, to the more unorthodox places to attack the arm, like the torreando armbar, the double armbar, or even the highlight reel flying armbar!
Every time Renato comes to the mat, the whole arena watches, because he fights with a speed and passion that is infectious. He brings that same passion to his instruction, leaving nothing back as he shows you how a world champion makes a classic move his own. No matter what your game is, Renato has an armbar here for you, giving you a wicked ace in the hole. You aren’t just getting basics here, you are getting fundamental concepts, then combining them into dynamic submission chains that let you attack at will. Renato’s success on the mats is undisputed, with big wins over Clark Gracie, Lucas Rocha, Mansher Khera, and Garry Tonan to his credit!
This is the time for you to make the armbar yours. Instead of laboring through positions and fighting against yourself, take your game to another level by learning how to recognize all the different ways the armbar is available. These are high level details and knowledge from one of BJJ’s hottest modern athletes, so don’t hesitate in picking up this one of a kind series!
The armbar from guard is a perfect metaphor for BJJ; it is a person in a perceived bad position, using leverage and technique to win the fight. Turn your guard into a spiders web of traps and tricks, as you start to see all the new and innovative ways that Renato gets to the armbar. Make your guard work for you by learning the grips and transitions that you can use to slide into that armbar with speed and technique, every time. From the classic closed guard, you’ll find variation after variation, and then that comes combined with more creative entries, finding the tap from other guards like De La Riva, Reverse De La Riva, Lasso, and even 50/50! You can stop worrying about playing for the advantages, or being an easy target for a top player, once you have Renato’s signature armbar series’ down.
Double your returns on the armbar by learning some of the most valuable moves Renato uses; passing directly into the armbar threat. The easiest time to attack is right after a different attack just worked, your opponent is still resetting themselves to a new, worse position and you have a little gap to work with. Why not take that opportunity, instead of settling in and pressuring down on someone, to get to the arm and end the match? Sound easier said than done? It’s all possible, and Renato Canuto’s signature pass-armbar combinations have proven to be the difference makers in a lot of big matches. Turn your favorite pass into a crushing joint lock with just a few simple adjustments that Renato has mastered!
