    I actually asked my coach this the other night. I have some Judo experience so I am really comfortable in this position. He said against anyone good you have to be super careful because it gives them too many options. I am pretty comfortable doing in in Gi class but in no-gi the purple belts and good blue belts take my back.

    Why use it when modified scarf hold has all of the same benefits with no potential for getting your back taken.

    That wasn't a question.

    Maybe because we are stupid and don't know modified scarf hold. Perhaps the best poster ever could enlighten us?

    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    I can't think of any specific examples but I am pretty sure I have seen the scarf hold several times in MMA as a transitional position going to shoulder chokes, side control and such.

    I am pretty sure I have seen Stevenson crank it on someone.

    Unlike Judo I can't see any benefit in holding someone in it for sub grappling or MMA.

    ****, who in there right mind would do anything BUT the kesa with an underhook. Actually, I thought the far side underhook WAS proper Kesa Gatame positioning...if your not doing it WITH the far side underhook I would go so far as to say its borderline crappling.

    Hmmm, thanks for the pic WhiteShark.

    The pic in 9 is what I use as Kesa...the pic in 10, at least for me, is purely a transitional position between kesa and standard side control.
