    Sweeps.

    O.K, I've been wanting to ask this for a while. I am quite interested in low sweeps, an how to pull them off effectivly. I have tried them numerous times with only a little success, My question being how can you throw low sweeps with enough power to take both legs out from under your oppenent? I know it can be done, I just can't figure out the mechanics.

    Anyone feel like helping out?

    Just do what your sensei tells you and sweep the leg, Johnny. Don't ask questions.

    But seriously folks, I don't think its worth it to sweep both legs. The only way I could think of doing it would be with a full back sweep, and with that, you are just asking to get punched in the back of the head.

    Here's an idea: Stop doing shaolin-do and take up Judo.

    There are definitely some impressive sweeps in Judo. I think Sonic is right.

    Good luck with that.

    Not with shaolin-do. With never asking stupid fucking questions like that again.

    So are we referring to:

    1) Mortal Kombat style low sweeps?

    2) Judo style leg attacks which number in the dozens, each with their own setups, mechanics, and executions?

    3) BJJ style turnovers that number in the hundreds, each with their own setups, mechanics, and executions, further differentiated by the potential inclusion of a gi?
    Captain's Log: Just a little update for all my TRUE and HONEST friends out there:

    1) I am STRAIGHT! I am STRAIGHT! Get it through your thick skulls, numbskulls!

    2) My name is not Ian Brandon Something.

    3) Kacey is coming with me now. I have stolen her from the other Christian Weston Chandler.

    REMINDER: I am still the one and only true creator of sonichu and rosechu electric hedgehog pokemon
