    It's a sneaky looking kneebar from half guard and it's evidently this guy's trademark. Maybe I'm just easy to impress but it blew me away.
    Yeah, we call this the scorpion kneebar. I use it to set up the deep half a lot.

    I've done that in Judo...yeah, I know, it's not legal to lower body subs in Judo, but I've done it to help escape from Tate Shiho Gatame when the guy on top has both legs grapevined...it's a sneaky way to do it but it works sometimes.

    When I use this from top, which is all I have so far though I will try this next session from bottom, I hit it from a an over under pass. As I'm trying to step my inside legover finish, the opponent commonly follows with his near leg so you can't pass. Once he hooks your leg, sprawl out as you cross your legs under his and hip into the mat.
    If he turns his knee out, now you can slide through to pass.

    I hit it yesterday from top by trying some new leg lock I saw recently. It failed and the sprawl knee bar was right there. Ill look for the link, but it's the once where the sambo guy and bjj guy from Phuket top team exchange two leg locks.

    Hmm. Then I am forced to conclude that my techniques sucks when using this move.

    I have an easier time finishing this move from the bottom than the top though. Do you know if Ronnie has a preference?
