    On bottom? As opposed to what?

    I think I'd rather be on top in side control.

    I've started using the sweep where you overhook the arm and underhook the free leg and then switch hips underneath and bump :dunno: what it's called.

    I don't usually throw up subs from half guard :dunno:

    I throw up subs from halfguard to attempt to sweep from. Never really as finishers.

    i guess the only one worth going after is the kimura... i use it mainly for sweeps

    getting underhooks and going to the back is also very satisfying

    Well think about it


    The only way that's going to work is if his hips are in the position so he can't post with his leg.. and the only reason you would do that is to mount someone and look what he's doing... giving it to him


    that is a stupid technique to teach someone .. the only way I would teach that would be a counter to a person who actually does that.

    seems to be one of the side effects of the proliferation of BJJ, people feeling the need to make up their own techniques instead of relying on the basics to form your foundation

    The school thats from (not the guy in the video) If i recall correctly is run by Moacir "Boca" DeOlivera who is you look him up is a well decorated BJJ guy. He trained with Top Team for a long while before branching off on his own. He's really quite good.

    I don't like that move personally to easy to get squashed.

    That being said you can prolly get caught in a reverse stupid lock while attempting it.
