Professor Tony Passos explaining some omoplata concepts during his last seminar in Westchester MMA-Fit.
“The biggest problem when we get the omoplata is we see the omoplata as just a submission. From the omoplata I can submit my opponent. But also from the omoplata you can do a lot of things from there. If I know 20 attacks but if my opponent knows 5 attacks and one of those is the omoplata, my opponent knows more than I know. Why? Because it is not about the amount of attacks that we can do. It is about whether I can go back and forth. Omoplata is the backdoor attack for the person on the bottom.”
