This technique falls right into place with the Pilate's for Grapplers program that Lloyd offered a couple of years ago. There where several positions to make you comfortable while you are inverted or stacked. So I guess it was just the natural transition from a bad position and make it advantageous. I would like to see where the rest of the video's lead from this position. Me personally I don't have the flexibility to pull these off, but I would definitely offer the technique to fellows students. Looks like some really good stuff.
Train Hard, Stay Safe,
I like the tech. However, I've tried it but have never been able to pull it off.
i've seen the same technique demonstrated in a rigan machado machade video, but it didn't have the awesome backgrounds and twitchy blinking habit that ryan has. he also goes into more technical depth than rigan.
i've got this one to work a few times, but it's not something i'd describe as reliable, more something that can be used if you get into a funky position.
YEAH lets make fun of his Tourettes...dick

i didn't realise he had tourettes. i have a couple of habits like that myself. i'm not joking. i assumed you could have such habit without actually having tourettes, but what do i know. it was meant as a lighthearted throwaway comment, but whatever. let's forget i said it.

I saw a different one by Ryan on LF just yesterday. Inverted guard.. fun stuff. It seems like a great way to turn that 'ooooh **** he's going to crab me' into something much less 'teh suck'.
The background was annoying on this one though yeah.
Whenever someone goes for an inverted guard on me I go right into a toe hold. Of course Ryan was really good about pointing out the control points and using the stiff arm to control the distance, which I can't recall anyone I've grappled with doing as well.
Good instruction, not a go to position, but good to know if you end up there
Yeah, my thoughts too CF. I like to drill from 'omg I'm screwed' position, that'd normally be one of them hehe. I love the fluidity of his rotation on that shoulder to extend the hips, nice.
here's the no-gi.
man, being on lloyd's email list is suprisingly awesome and not annoying at all.
