Slick Submission is a term used in Mixed Martial Arts to describe how the attacker had made the opponent give up the fight. When it comes to a good fight, everyone would love to see a good submission finish. Many techniques can be used to execute a good submission; may it be choking the enemy or locking his joints. Many Mixed Martial Artists are experienced enough to catch their opponents and pin them, thus making them dangerous Octagon enemies. A slick submission is also used to describe how the attacker creatively ends the fight.
Top Slick Submission Attackers
Everyone is familiar with Rousimar Palhares, a martial artist known for his dangerous submissions. For the record, Palhares had already won 6 titles by submission. What’s good about him is that he has a high intuition to catch unsuspecting opponents, then he can end the match pretty quickly. Another dangerous Slick Submission attacker is Joe Lauzon, who already won 7 UFC submissions. He is good at locking up the opponent and if he was caught, he would move so he could switch position with the opponent. Once he saw an opportunity to make the opponent submit, he would easily finish off the fight.
The Most Effective Slick Submissions
Everyone thought that every fight has to be finished with a strong slick submission for a more thrilling experience. Athletes have to know all the grappling techniques to catch the opponent effectively. This includes mastering the grappling techniques in wrestling, judo, and Jiu-Jitsu. One of the most effective techniques is using the Reverse Triangle Americana, which is originated by Anvar Alizahaniv and Kota Shimoishi. This technique is combining the shoulder lock and the tight triangle choke. Another memorable submission technique is the Anaconda Choke, where the attacker has to tangle himself to the opponent and made him squeeze to constrict the opponent’s blood in the arteries.
What is Kimura and Americana?
Kimura is a traditional shoulder lock, which allows the attacker to grip the opponent easily. One of the most notable Kimura users is Bibiano Fernandes, whose mastery of Kimura is beyond words. He could easily grapple his enemy, then move on to his technique. By then, his opponent might have realized that they’re already in danger once he is successfully submitted by Fernandes. On the other hand, Americana is somewhat connected to Kimura, but through the use of the scarf-hold position. This is frequently used by Ayaka Miura, a Japanese MMA fighter who won three matches because of Americana.
