Flores Roll

This is a quick move from the bottom when you are in turtle position and you want to make an escape and potentially end up in an offense of position. I took this from a US Judoka named Justin Flores.

Things you'll need to get this move to work:

  • be in turtle on bottom and have your partner attempt a half nelson
  • quickly clamp their arm with your elbow and snap them down to their side (we're not looking for full back exposure)
  • with live toes, quickly cartwheel over with both of your legs while balancing your belly on them
  • adjust to yoko shiho gatame or side control to establish the pin
