    Get a two-on-one as in the squeeky voiced wrestling video. Lock their arm out straight and Drive your shoulder down on theirs to bend them over. Then jump up and trap their arm with your rear leg and roll into the reverse omoplata.

    YOu might not have the upper body control you need - I know when I started, I couldn't do **** because my natural inclination was to try to muscle the guy my shoving his sholder back . . . this has the effect of getting you out at the ends of their arms . . . now I try to suck them in by bending my arms and moving laterally on the mat, looking to create a kind of whirlpool effect with them as the water and me as the middle. You might also do your throws the same way every time, ie you basically have a huge "tell" like tensing up or holding your breath...or always aggressing from the same side (that's mine) that makes you easier to counter then you should be.

    I'll act like this video is related to the discussion so I can post it.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Shoulder snapping out of a necktie and capturing the arm is the accepted definition, but here I am using it to mean any time you redirect a stiffarm using a shouldersnap, as I used this to enter yoko gake.

    O soto gari should be rear corner, not straight back. That is the reason most people have problem with it.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.
