    Cartwheels are pretty standard in a lot of BJJ clubs and Judo clubs.

    The reason has to do with the conditioning of the inner ear. Front shoulder rolls accomplish much the same thing.

    A lot of guys like cartwheel guard passes as well.

    So you're saying you've never heard of the secret throw that Kano invented and then banned from use for all eternity, Ferris Guruma????

    I did Bujinkan. It comprised amongst other things of stopping attackers by leaning forward and emitting badass Ki. No kidding.

    Also, Ferris Guruma? Are you kidding, or is that an actual technique?

    Haha, just kidding. But I swear, there're a million triangle variations from dozens of different angles and positions. I've seen triangles finished using the attacker's arm and other crazy **** like that.

    I had an instructor do a demonstration where he put two students in zenkutsu-dachi, facing away from each other. Then he pushed down against the upward block of one student, while he had the other student shift position.

    The students weren't even touching each other. The idea was, if one guy's stance was weak, the other guy's arm would be weak, too, for some mystical chi-related reason.
