Omaplata Defense

I have a question about the jumping over the head defense. In the video they come too a knee on stomach the rotate back to get to guard position. My question is could the person who is defending the omaplata, attack with a knee bar from that position. Or would it be better just too get back to being inside the guard?

Thank you

Bob

Hello Bob, what video exactly are you talking about? Can you post here? That way will be easier for me to answer

Re: Omaplata Defense

yes, it's possible, but safer to just go back, since the arm may be still trap when the angle is right to attack

We were drilling this and also found if you put too much weight on the stomach the bottom guy can do a sweep.

Thanks Felipe for the input.
