Closed Guard To Shoulder Clamp Sweep, Straight Armlock From Mount, Shoulder Clamp Half Guard Sweep

3 Part Technique – Sometimes in the guard you get a big strong guy who just wants to hold you.  This is a good opportunity to transition to the Shoulder Clamp Sweep.  Use the sweep to get you to the mount and finish with the Straight Armlock.  However if while attempting the Shoulder Clamp Sweep your opponent manages to advance up into the half guard turn on your side as quick as possible, pull your grip to the other side of his neck, and change your feet to the inside.  Then it’s safe to sweep him.
