If this is a serous post: You may know it as "snaking", it's the same thing. If you've been in BJJ for 8mo & never done it, I'd be shocked.

They call it snaking at my BJJ school. I called it shrimping in class a while back & nobody knew what I was talking about. I was taught it as shrimping in judo.

posting on one shoulder and your opposite foot and then scooting your hips out in to the side of the shoulder that's in the air. i might have mixed that up in the explanation, but it's a pretty common move used in a lot of bjj actions/submissions/escapes/etc

Okay thanks guys. Ive done it probably everytime I went in I just didnt know it was called Shrimping. Weird I never heard my Jiu jitsu instructor call it that either.

now that the real answers have been posted, here's the other answer. which is the oral pleasuring of the toes.

If you've been doing BJJ for 8 months and dont know what shrimping in it is prolly one of these two problems:
1) you don't pay attention
2) your instructor isn't so great

Shrimping is basaically the motion of when you scoot your hip out to a side. Kinda hard to explain. Just ask your instructor. There are drills you can do to get your shrimp game sizzlin.
