    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Pulled off my first twister today

    IT WAS AWESOME!

    I was rolling with a guy twice my size and better at jits than me so he was going fairly easy. I was in half guard, he thought I was moving to take his back, I went the whole way round and locked in the twister and actually got a tap.

    The irony is that a while ago I was obsessed with the twister for a good few months. I kept looking at all the different set ups, drilled it as much as I could (not very much), kept trying it in sparring to absolutely **** all effect until I got frustrated and moved back to my core set of triangles and teabag americanas. Five months later I hit it and barely realise it.

    So to stop this thread from being a total waste, what have you guys laboured on for ages and ages only to have it finally appear from out of the blue?

    Did you scream "Twister" as you did it? I am pretty sure it is a required part of the technique.

    LMAO!!! Screaming "TWIIIISSTERRRR!" is the best part about landing that sub.

    I was just in total shock that he had tapped. He was bigger and better enough than me that he spend the whole sess playing catch'n'release and trying every wacky move he knew, and must have figured I was more into taking backs than twistering. When I pulled and he started tapping I was like 'holy **** was that actually on?'.

    I have a similar belief regarding the Boston Crab and the Texas Cloverleaf, although I usually like to add my own flair to it: "Boston crab, bitches! Boston Crab!!"...I don't know why, but I'm pretty sure it makes me a better grappler, akin to adding colorful patches to my gi, or how putting big stickers from auto performance companies on my car make it go faster.

    the other day a purple (i'm blue) tried to stack pass me while i had my hand in his collar. i extended my leg and forced his arm through my legs and locked up a triangle.

    it was a move i had been shown and drilled maybe a year ago, but never attempted before.

    Plasma, everybody knows you don't scream it.

    You blow gently into their ear, whisper "Twister baby" and then kiss them gently on the temple.

    im not familiar with the word twister.
    is it the move where you sorta have the arm and roll it like you'd roll the arm in a omoplata?
    so you roll shoulder and or elbow outta lingement?

    It's a 10th Planet technique, Eddie Bravo's bread and butter move, and his nickname. There's a name for it in wrestling but it escapes me at this moment, but it's a neck crank. Twist the opposite's hips while using your facing arm to cradle his neck and your opposite hand in a baseball grip and cranking it, and to further pressure you can use your elbow to catch the hand.
