To Play the Lapel Guard, first you hold the pants to hold your opponent then you hold his collar. Your opponent will keep breaking your grips. So, you’ll open his lapel and grab it. Next, you through your arm under his leg and the lapel over his leg to trap your opponent. Then you raise your hips and the leg you have with the lapel you will put your knee in and the outside leg you will use as a pendulum and you will sweep your opponent forward. Coming up from the sweep, you have to come up with your knee on your opponent stomach to don’t let him bring his legs up and give you a hard time. Securing the side control, you will let go the lapel, push your opponent legs to the side and slide your knee on the floor, secure the hips and stabilize the side control.
