As I pull my right leg out from underneath Butch's body, I scoot my hips in a clockwise direction. To prevent him from freeing his right arm as I make my transition, I control his right wrist with my left hand.

hooking the arm from omaplata

There are a lot of things that can happen when you sit out to secure the omaplata submission. The ideal situation is to secure the shoulder lock right off the bat and get the finish, but it's not always that easy. If your opponent rolls as you sit up, you'll probably want to follow him over and secure side control. If your opponent postures up and turns into you, then you can immediately transition into the triangle or hook your foot underneath his far arm and break him back down, which is the technique 1 demonstrate below.

I've managed to get my hips out from underneath Albert and secure the omaplata control position.

Albert begins to posture up in an attempt to escape the omaplata submission.

As Albert postures up, I roll onto my back and hook my left foot underneath his right armpit.

To break Albert back down to the mat, I come up onto my left elbow and begin to straighten my left leg.

Straightening out my left leg, I break Albert's posture back down to the mat and cock my right hand back.

As I sit all the way up and post on my left hand, I drive my right fist into the back of Albert's head. From here I will most likely get my left leg out from underneath him and work to finish the omaplata.
