    There's nothing wrong with white belts learning gimmicks, so long as it doesn't interfere with their knowledge of the basics. I've had an instructor who taught the Twister to first-week white belts, under the rationale that it's "a good move". Works for me.

    Of course, any white belt willing to venture out and attempt more complex moves should know the social and Internetical ramifications of fucking up become that much more severe. Kengou, if we ever see a video of you embarassing yourself grappling, the fact that you started a thread on the Twister will only exacerbate you e-beating. Consider yourself warned.

    Knowledge and understanding mean very little until you put in a lot of repetition and are able to apply that in at least somewhat meaningful way.

    If knowledge was power in MA, then half the dorks here on bullshido would be MMA masters instead of theorists and nobodies.

    Boyd: I'm actually entering my first tourny on May 20th, so you'll get to flame me all you want once I post the vid. And I highly doubt I'll get the twister or even attempt it. It's just something I was introduced to and have gotten a few times while rolling.

    Interesting technique this, I've been reading up on Eddie Bravo alot lately.

    I especially like the old school sweep from half guard, but the twister, I've heard that spine locks are now illegal therefore theres not much point in practising it?

    I do think its very cool, but due to it being illegal, I'm not so sure about it.

    In my experience you need to be either completely dominating your opponent through side control progression OR your opponent is distracted/makes a mistake and you are able to transition into it (but then you have to quickly flow into your next position whether its a twister attempt or not). I've practiced the twister and the set up but have never been able to pull it off during fully resistant randori.

    Bravo is a technical badass for sure.

    What's even more intersting are the examples of twister transitions that do not start from twister side control. I've seen a few on the net but can't remember where.

    So what is the twister exactly? I've heard it called a neck crank, some call it a spine lock... Apparently it can tear up **** in your legs too. So, what is it? A combination of the above?

    Hi, I'm not so much throwing it out - infact I think its a great technique, and along with the old school it seems like a high percentage move of getting into that position.
    I would like to find out more on the rules of competitions in the US though, I am from the UK and all competitions I know of (gi and no gi) ban spine locks.
    Thanks.

    I have tried several times and been unable to pull this off. Has anyone actually managed to do it?
