In my experience though, rollovers are MUCH harder to get on Judo guys than BJJ guys.Originally Posted by Osiris

I just got back from visiting my Judo club last week and learned a modified version of the "Brazialian" (the loop choke I described at the begining of the thread). Instead of a choke, this one is a really tight pin, and is _really_ uncomfortable for the person being pinned.
Essentially it is the same technique with one change. Instead of reaching around and grabbing the lapel near the neck, reach behind the arm and grab as close to the waist as possible. Try and get a lapel, but just grabbing a hunk of gi should be enough. Perform the roll as I described before, and you should have a really tight pin. I was able to hold it on a guy > 60 pounds on me.Originally Posted by Osiris

I <3 the reverse omoplata. I am a convert.And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.
