    The throw comes from Georgian (former Soviet State,) folk wrestling. I use a number of variations on the throw with good success.

    Like all lifts the key is being tight and lifting with the legs, allowing the arms to rotate the person (steer the bus.) Also, lifts need not be high, an inch off the ground is usually good enough. Finally when using a leg to assist with the lift the "nutsack" is not the target, rather the the thigh.

    The problem with the throw in competition is that you have to throw immeditely when you grab the belt (I think the origin of that rule was Khabarelli, but I am not for sure), so when you try to use this Russian style you get lots of shidos. I don't practice BJJ, but I would love to enter into a tournament and use the 'over the back grab the belt' grip. Try it out in practice, you can completely control your opponents posture and I see why its considered stalling.

    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

    so is this throw deemed legal as long as you don't wrap your foot around at the ankle like a poster mentioned earlier? I usually do o uchi gari because I have long legs, and incase I can't get it this looks like an awesome throw to use

    If you are an ouchi guy this throw works right in smoothly. I use it a lot on a bent over posture where the "over-the-back" grip is quick and easy to get. In answer to your question, yes no frog-leg and it is just fine.

    thanks a lot!

    the last thing I want to do is get disqualified for using an illegal throw!
