Bill Cooper is a Jiu Jitsu wizard. I can’t stop watching his matches simply because he has so many sick techniques that he pulls off. Just got done watching this no-gi BJJ match in the June Grappler’s Quest and knew I had to post a breakdown.
Bill Cooper Breakdown – June 2011 Grappler’s Quest – No Gi BJJ
1:40 – Cooper goes for a flying triangle from the clinch. He does this by bringing his thigh up into the armpit of his opponent’s underhook. and passing his other leg over his opponent’s shoulder. He couldn’t break the posture so he wasted no time and went for the double leg into an attempted back take.
2:20 – His opponent had a paperclip half guard so Bill weaved his right arm in to block the bottom knee and start the guard pass. As soon as he started to pass, he circled all the way around looking for the armbar or sidemount, but he couldn’t stay low enough.
2:30 – Bill went from pulling half guard to kicking his leg over to a kneebar/upside down guard. As soon as his opponent put his right arm on the wrong side of Bill’s leg, Bill capatalized and sunk the triangle.
3:40 – To finish the triangle, Bill Cooper underhooked the leg which locks the choke.
