If you grapple then you have to use the omoplata. After all, it’s one of the ‘big five’ attacks from the guard (armbar, kimura, triangle, guillotine and omoplata).
Much of the time the omoplata ends up functioning as a sweep – your opponent rolls out of it to escape, you follow him, and get to the top. That’s not a problem – you’re now on top after all – but wouldn’t it have been nice to get the submission instead?
Let me introduce you to a variation of the omoplata called ‘The Rack’.
It’s an incredibly powerful finish for the omoplata that puts your opponent into a world of hurt.
You really have to try it out for yourself in order to feel the power of it.
