In honor of our beloved Halloween tradition, I’m breaking down one of the spookiest Heel Hooks I’ve seen in a while, performed at the 2021 IBJJF No Gi Worlds.

The Back Side 50/50 is widely regarded as the ideal position to finish an Inside Heel Hook from the 50/50 guard, primarily because it keeps your opponent facing away, limiting his defenses.

In this video I break down how Fabian Ramirez transitioned from regular 50/50 guard to Back Side 50/50 in order to submit his opponent at the Worlds No Gi.

Stay healthy,
