Principle 4 – Shrimping

By synergymma | In News | on April 6, 2007

Shrimping

Always create space between you and your opponent by bridging into your opponent and then sliding your hip away (shrimping) in order get leverage to set up your offense: escapes, sweeps, submissions, or stand-ups. Do not push your opponent away from you but instead post/push on your opponent to get your hip away from him. Post/push off on whichever body part of your opponent that has passed your guard the furthest and is the most threatening. If possible, always post one arm behind yourself in a 45 degree angle to your torso in order to effectively shrimp out while your opponent is driving into you.

Note: It is important to have correct timing when to post/push off of your opponent in order for your hip to propel the furthest away, using your opponent’s force to your advantage. Always bridge into the direction you are attempting to create space before shrimping out. “When in doubt, Shrimp-out!” Master shrimping from every angle!
