10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Van Nuys: The Ham Sandwich Sweep and Submission

January 8th, 2013 In 10th Planet Van Nuys | Comments Off

This move is awesome! It’s very difficult for you opponent to see it coming. When you get it locked in, it’s almost impossible to scramble out. If you opponent does happen to get out, you can transition to a heel hook, or sometimes even a figure four leg lock!


Coach Alder Presents: The Ham Sandwich

I had the pleasure of teaching class tonight at the 10th Planet Headquarters at the Legends Gym in Hollywood. I showed the class one of my money sweeps, The Ham Sandwich. It’s a combo sweep/submission when your opponent posts one or both of their legs up. You can hit it from several different positions. It works well from the stomp, the cocoon, open guard, butterfly guard with one under hook, 93 guard. I’ve even seen Conor Heun do a flying Ham Sandwich.

This Technique came from Legendary Jiu Jitsu master, Ricardo Liborio of American Top Team. He taught it to Eddie Bravo and Jason Chambers in Japan when Jason was fighting out there.

***This technique was not taught to Jason Chambers and Eddie Bravo by Ricardo LIborio of American Top Team. It is actually a Jason Chambers Variation. I stand corrected.

Sorry Jason ; )
