scorpion crunch... thoughts?
So I'm a blue belt training at Revolution team.
Got paired up with this other blue belt who is much smaller than I am, which is rare. (I weigh 160 with Gi on)
So ended up in his guard, I notice he tries to break my posture. I see that he reaches his hands behind my back, I assume he's trying to feed my Gi or something. I noticed his neck is exposed (since his arms are around me) and I go for ezekiel from inside his guard.
Before I can sink in the sub, a sudden, sharp pain as if someone kicked me in the kidneys and I tap right away.
And there ya go, it was a scorpion crunch. I didn't know what the move was, but it hurt like a mofo...
I talked to the guy afterwards, apparently he used it with great success in competitions...
Anybody else use this move? Any comments?
I found this vid where another dude taps
