So here’s a video on how to perform the basic Omoplata from the guys at BJJ4MMA.com. This method of trapping the arm is much easier in no gi grappling, thus is perfect for MMA. Years ago, Frank Mir used this method to get the Omoplata on Tank Abbott in UFC then finally submitted the “Pit Fighter” with a Figure 4 Toe Hold from the shoulder lock. Again, the Omoplata is great as a bridge to other attacks. Use it.
