    armbar for me

    don't use it that often even though it's such a bread and butter move.

    Admit it. None of you use the scissors sweep.

    No-one in my gym does the scissor sweep with any regularity except me. It's nearly always the first thing I attack with from guard.

    I suck at rncs and collar chokes. I also have a bad habit of spending 5 minutes trying to reverse position when i'm on bottom instead of trying to regain guard.

    Scissor and flower sweeps are my "go to" guard sweeps, actually. I rarely go for kimuras except from north/south because it can become a real struggle, I'll only fake them to get bump sweeps.

    We don't call it scissor sweep but we do that too sometimes.

    Any leg lock....apparently you have to protect your own legs while attempting them and well, I just ain't quick enough yet.
