    Sorry for the delay on the Eternal Unlimited "Technique of the Week" videos! We have 26 videos shot and edited, so we will have them up EVERY week from this point on. We shot the vids with Nick Diaz, Nate Diaz, Jake Shields, Gilbert Melendez, and Dave Terrell!

    This week we started off with something simple. Nick Diaz takes us through the proper way to execute the armbar from closed gurad. Be sure to check out the Eternal Unlimited Store to help us out and support the fighters who make these vids possible. Click the link below to view the video...

    Basic but I like it! You can never have enough arm bar and triangle set ups!

    Breaking down your opponent's posture is the key. There are some subtle details that Nick shows that can be helpful.

    telegraphing

    sneaking

    tight high guard

    one move

    cross face

    going to the back if needed

    I think this is one of Nick's first instructional video.

    Thanks Eternal. I hear Moses in the background teaching the kids' class. I think it adds a nice touch.

    Thanks for the good word guys! Good point Bill. It is always good to go over the fundamentals that you and Nick mentioned. Can't wait to see Gilbert fight this weekend!

    I never thought about arm dragging from full guard and then taking his back. Thanks, Nick. :)

    Did Nick really say that to a random audience member? That sounds like him. He's always willing to help people who want to train.

    I hope he does more.

    Nick has a great way of avoiding punches in the guard. He always keeps his opponent "off posture".

    I think it was Nick's normal voice.
