Williams Guard Omoplata and Breakdown

One of the keys to completing the Omoplata is forcing your opponents shoulder to the floor. 
This makes it much easier to get you hips higher than the shoulder and apply the pressure. 
My favourite way to do this is by dragging my opponent sideways and breaking their posture. 

Anchor 1

That's what we're going to work in this plan.
