  1. I think you want to control that right wrist so you can move it out for an omaplata or triangle choke

  2. The toughest part is the leg that's NOT going upinto the shoulder. People catch me woth the knee cutter pass all the time

  3. I can always do this technique in training correctly but struggle in sparring, kind of frustrating.

  4. @alphabetazulu okay i'll give it a try, i think i was tryin to use my shin more than anything but had no power.

  5. This sweep is super effective, I hit it almost every time i try…BUT i can never get that leg over the shoulder into high guard, his arm is always posted on the ground so firmly!! Any suggestions??
