Grip at the elbows. Makes pefect sense. I use this sweep all the time in my A, B, C, sweep progresson. I never think to grab at the elbows. But is makes perfect sense. As with almost everything in BJJ technique, its the little things that matter most.
I agree 100%...plus better than anything I have seen on-line too. Good job.

One thing that I see you doing that I do differently:
Instead of placing your knee accross his belly I like to have it (and have been taught recently to have it) at about a 30-45 degree angle so that it's harder for him to mega-crush you. Especially with bigger guys this makes a difference.
Great post though, keep up the good work!
EDIT: Just to clarify--I'm not saying there is a "right" way, just that this way works better for me.

Everyone should feel free to slobber on Aesopian's e-balls. This is probably the best sub-forum on Bullshido.
Samfoo, you're right. Putting the knee up like that is better.

I love the "Judo Elbow" detail.
And, because Phrost gave us permission, I give you a big slobbery ball!
Dang...that's the first sweep that I ever learned, it's my favorite, specially because I get pretty much everyone with it, from white to blues, and it allows me to set up other stuff when it fails. Used it as a set up to win my FIRST TOURNAMENT, FIRST PLACE OVER 90KG, AHAMMM...(tooting my own horn)
i love the facial expression in the last pic :)
also like the transition to the other "stupid sweep" personally never tried that one before
An australian instructor at my judo school refers to it as: "wiping your nose on your opponents sleeve".

Good breakdown of the technique.
