    Have you actually trained in BJJ before? Aeso (or Shuma) is going to delete your post, but I'll respond just for fun.

    Sigh . . . this question shows your lack of understanding of submission grappling. You have to set the technique up. The ways of trapping someone's arm in the "trigger" position for reverse omoplata are myriad. One such example is baiting with your far leg (let's say the right leg). If your opponenet is turtled, you can bring your far leg closer to their body. Often, they will grab it, thinking they have just secured a leg for a single. As they are doing this, you cross your right knee over top of your left and then triangle your legs. This switch is fast, easy, and extremely tight. You will not simply shrug out of it.

Either before you felt the actual trapping of it or right as it was being applied, you can counter with a cranby variation and still end up behind and in control. - Granted I realize that cranby variations are fairly advanced college wrestling techniques... but wouldn't tucking your opposite arm and rolling across your shoulders, kicking through to keep your arm out of danger be intuitive?

    I also realize that there are many other BJJ techniques that are not easily implemented against wrestlers.... so I'll suffice to say that while it looks very very weak its not quite crappling I guess.
    Because no BJJer has ever done wrestling before, right? Your arguments show a lack of exposure to competent submission grapplers. None of what you describe is "simply" going to happen. If someone triangles your arm properly for a trigger, tucking and rolling is going to tear your shoulder out of socket. Period. If your training partner is nice, he'll probably let go and allow you to put yourself into side control.

    In parting, I leave you with the DHS forum description:

    I am confused by your definition of a technique as weak simply because it has counters. Can you share the strong techniques you use that have no counters?

    Room for non BJJ grapplers in this forum?

    I have 7 years aikijiujitsu experience 13yrs wrestling experience and 5years studying pancreation.



    I found quite to my dismay that my very first opinion post in reverseomeplata had been trolled by a old member of this site... Simply because I discussed the counter in terms of a (wrestling) cranby roll.



    So my question is political... is the Department of Homeland security only for BJJ? If so...it's a bit like disowning your father and grandfather, don't you think?



    I have a lot of solid grappling experience and a lot of positive input, and always vow to make solid opinions and explain why.
    Was I merely trolled or did I walk into a BJJ only forum. In my line of work, traditional jiujitsu will save your life wheras a gaurd might get you killed.



    Everyone has concealed weopons these days...does BJJ even address them. I'm a fan of BJJ in MMA but it won't help you much with a traffic stop.

    Good point... I suppose most techniques have counters. I guess my initial reaction was in that the techniqe begins with an inverted arm, which in all my experience is a big no no.

    Um, blatant statements of the guard not working on a traffic stop gone bad will only work on people who don't know better. There are a number of successful encounters involving BJJ cops and 'clients'.

    The guard and other techniques all have their place and application in real encounters.

    I heartily recommend you get over it. We really aren't the nicest bunch, especially to new people who haven't yet shown themselves worthy of respect. This subforum is for grappling, solid grappling, discussion. If you feel you have that perspective and want to post arguements, ideas, etc, feel free to do so, but it is highly likely it will be bandied about a bit, and perhaps mocked. So the question really is, can the non-BJJers hang?

That would be paramount to myself assuming that you have no striking experience.
    Next time you accuse a response of being "dumb" check it to make sure that it doesn't agree with the author of the thread who calles his roll- out counter a romoplata. Which if you knew anything about grappling is the most obvious and intuitive counter for this move.
    Next time you decide to enlighten us with your infallible information, attack the argument rather than jumping to assumtions about the experience of the author. I didn't attack Aesopian's credibility or experience, I simply stated that it sounded weak and stated why. FYI aikijiujitsu and pancration were systems that predated BJJ by centuries and millenia - Where do you get off assuming that if you're not BJJ you're limited? This is supposed to be a forum for grappling not BJJ snobs.
    Which ryu of Jujutsu? Who taught the pankration, because the mma revolution has brought up a lot of fakes?

    Also, length of lineage doesn't mean credibility.........
