    Rolling kneebar. Which I have pulled off twice in tournaments (one time I had to turn it into a toe hold though)

    This thread has inspired me to relearn the flying scissors/Kani Basami.

    Also the thing at 02:20 to 02:25

    Used to love that one when I was a kid. Even pulled it off in shiai once.

    Getting into an armbar, triangle or omo, then finishing with the wristlock. I will sometimes scream "OSU!" while doing so.

    I like trying for a figure-four leglock, or one of the easier variations. I've only caught guys with it twice in the past 10-12 years of training. But I love the mystified look on people's faces when you try to sub them with show holds.

    I can and have gone for the Sharpshooter and the Walls of Jericho, but with the Figure 4 all the opponent has to do is roll onto their belly and now you're caught in an India Death Lock with all the ouchies on your leg. Watch any Ric Flair match to see this principle in action. So I can't condone your behavior.

    I learned a few "pro wrestling moves that work" at one of Omega's seminars a few years ago, and still try them on people every once in a while. The Cloverleaf and the Truck.

    I guess I'll just have to withhold the secret of my twice a decade figure 4 success from you, unbeliever.

    I learned a lot of pro-wrestling moves that work and a lot that don't training at Takada Dojo. My favorite in the second category is probably the Sakuraba Special. Never caught anyone with it, but that hasn't stopped me from trying occasionally.

    Do you mind clarifying what the Sakuraba special is? The only possibilities I can see are the kimura against an opponent who has you in a rear clinch....or the double overhand chop.

    Wait a second...you train at Takada Dojo? As in KARL GOTCH Takada dojo?
