    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    This sweep is money!

    Putting this here because the sweep direction is a little tough for total newbs imo. I learned this on Youtube yesterday and hit it today on a brown belt. The switch to armbar at the end is key. I'm excited because I've never applied anything from youtube so fast. The illegal pants grip is priceless too. lol

    I like this one, I've had issues with bigger/taller people being able to base with their opposite hand enough to shift their weight back. In which my response has typically been to omoplata or take the back or armbar ala Galvao. Here's an another option from Rafael Lovato Jr.



    I like it because it very much follows the idea of efficiency and yielding to your opponents energy.

    I always grab the other leg. I'm going to try grabbing the opposite leg now. Maybe get more leverage.

    I agree that this kind of sweep, is fucking money. Especially when they come into you anyway.

    Hahaha, "the ref's not going to see that..."

    Is the illegal pant leg grip totally necessary, or could you just grab the ankle? I'm going to give both a try.

    I like the sweep, but i have to ask: why is that particular grip illegal? I've just reviewed all the rules I know and couldn't find a mention of it.

    He's probably gripping inside the pants.

    Yeah, David Koresh Jr. is correct. Here is the foul in the IBJJF rules, under fouls not as serious:

    D-) When the athlete inserts his fingers inside the sleeves or pants, or with both his hands on his opponent’s belt.

    I didn't realise you couldn't do that. Not that I grip like that.

    Is a normal grip of the pants not adequate for this sweep? I'll give in a shot at some point tonight.
