    What do you call the move where the person...

    Whats the name of this percuilar takedown.(I don't have a pic but i'll try to describe it)

    The fighter dives at his opponent with his legs spread out, catching the opponent at the waist(iwht the legs) and taking them down. Seen a few san shou guys do it.

    Anyone know the name of the technique?

    Not that I know of. Anything that might remotely cause minor pain to anything below waistlevel seems to be shunned in Judo.

    Scissor takedown?
    What am I?:

    I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.

    I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.

    That's right children, I'm your average AMERICUNT! and I exemplify AMERICA!:911flag:

    Yes, through persistent lack of work and the cultivation of ignorance, he is a true American.

    I've been told Kani Basami is legal in competition. I've never seen it done though and I doubt I could pull it off if I wanted too. Come to think of it, i've never been instructed on the proper way to perform the technique either.

    Kani Basami (scissor takedown, crab claw, etc.) has been illegal in Judo competetition since the 80's. Too many people shattering knees, dislocating hips, and smashing the back of their heads on the ground.

    Unless your Cung Le, it's pretty low-percentage anyway.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    How are you planning on scissoring his legs when you have yours above the waist?

    A few other Ma's have this too. Capoeira has it (forget what its called) and TKD has it. I'm lots of others do too; buti could never see myself using it, its an all or nothing move.
