    I wasn't calling the technique itself a gimmick (in fact, I think its one of the best unarmed techniques against a weapon). There's vids of Aoki breaking arms with a variation of it, so obviously it works. The gimmick part is the way I applied it, meaning I picked it up somewhere and would try it in free grappling without an extensive amount of drilling, setups, theory, refinements etc. Kinda the way lots of BJJ white belts get into 10th planet JJ techniques and use them as gimmicks- the techniques themselves may be perfectly good, but attempted by someone who saw it on the Internet or something. I learned it originally as a chin na techniqe, which is probably applied differently than wakigatame in judo.

    In BJJ Omo Plata is best understood as a submission with no down side. If you can't get the tap you still get a sweep and even if you don't get the sweep perfectly you are at least closer to a top position. Saying "It seems an integral part of action reaction sequences in BJJ. " isn't quite accurate. It is one of those moves that some guys will always use and some guys will never use even at very high levels.

    You can do it while sitting out from turtle if uke is stupid enough to stick one or both arms in too far in.

    I always thought this was Makura Kesa Gatame. Officially, it's just another version of Kuzure Kesa Gatame.

    Omega's control and sensitivity and ability to switch positions depending on what uke does enables him to do stuff like that.

    Thanks, I was wondering. I've experimented with it in Judo practice. Problem is in shiai at least chances for armbar from guard are not too common. In randori, it's a lot more useful.

    I think you stated what I meant by action reaction sequences. I just noticed that especially from guard, it is a technique that is drilled in sequence triangle-armbar-omoplato-sweep etc.

    I've heard makura kesa gatatme for both.

    One thing that tripped me up when I started Judo were pin entries that felt like armlock entries. I can't find a video, but there's one move in particular that feels like a jujigatame entry but is acutually a kesa gatame or yoko shiho gatame entry. Basically, you jam your forearm into the crook of the elbow to control it. It feels like tori should step over the head, but instead spins around into a pin.

    On that subject, why do people still teach this? I'm unsure if it's just one of those classical techniques you've gotta learn or if anyone still thinks it works in randori or shiai and i'm kindof scared of the answer.
