    Very cool SamboSteve. Thanks for sharing it. I like techniques like this because they can cross over to other types of competion-BJJ in my case. I'm definately trying this tonight!

    Quick question, can the throw also be used in no-gi? Has it been attempted before?

    Love the technique of the month videos, thanks Steve.

    Thanks guys...

    No-gi would be tough to get good wrist grips. Try it, but I doubt it with sweat, etc. Maybe with MMA gloves on, but I have always thought of this as a gi only throw.

    Wavy Tiger, let me know how it works out!

    That's what I was wondering/thinking...wrist grips with no gi would be much harder. I guess the no-gi equivalent would just be something like a harai goshi.

    It work surprisingly well thanks! Everyone thought I was going for a basic arm drag and would try to take my back, but with the way you control both wrists while switching your hips they end up setting themselves up for the toss. I found more success with it against the guys with more Judo experience as they tend to go straight for the lapell grab which makes catching that sleeve control a little easier. The BJJ guys were harder to get but I did pull it off once. It's a nice move in that the set-up (as far as the way you move your hips) is so similar to several other throws that it's tough for the other guy to know for sure what you're doing. Plus, if he blocks that move you can transition it to a different throw relatively easily. You should have seen what the higher ranking guys were doing with it! It was quite the hit! Of course I told them I invented it....LOl
    Actually I just pointed them to this thread. Thanks again.

    Hey! I am glad it worked out! I love this takedown. And you are right, you can transition to several other throws fairly easily...and it is tough to distinguish which throw is coming at you.

    We tried this in no-gi last night. As you guessed it's almost impossible, but it seems like it would be a good way to set up a standard arm-drag because it can be a little confusing if you're not ready for it.

    SamboSteve, if you don't mind I have a question for you. I was wondering if you have any advice for setting up the initial sleeve control on this. Like I said before, I found it easy enough on the Judo guys who like to go right for that lapell grab, but the guys with straight BJJ experience arr a little more reluctant to commit like that. Any advice for footwork etc.?

    Edit: Apologies if you already cover that in the video- my machine doesn't have sound atm.
