Hit one of these today when a blue tried to hook up a brabo on me. Worked like a charm!
I use that exact same series, except I don't put both my hands on their hips. I'll try that out next time I'm on the mat. Thanks for the detail.
Edit: In an effort to give my post more technical content, my favorite sweep from that series is to switch their hips with my feet while they're elevated and follow them over to mount when they land on their back.
Just noticed your edit. So you mean you do like the last one he talks about where he sort of lets them drop and takes their back, but you use your feet to flip them over first?
It's definitely a timing thing. I showed it to a brown belt I like and he had to break the move up into two separate elevations. One to set his feet properly on my hips and the second to switch my hips with his feet to finish the sweep. I'm able to do it in one step, even during sparring, but it took me a long time to develop it.
Let me know if this is unclear.
