NICE find! You dont realize how many steps there are until he breaks it down.

He did the 1st 2 reps so quickly you can barely make out whats going on.
From that grip I'd normally only consider an eri-seoi-nage, this is an interesting alternative.
Cool. I was scared for a second that he was showing my secret weapon, but it turned out to be different. My secret weapon is safe... :p
great move. i get thrown with kata guruma alot lately so i want to develop it myself
Thanks mate. I drilled it a bunch of times before class tonight. Very impressive control with the stuffed arm and deep collar controlling vertically.


I like the drop Kata Gurum myself
Fantastic. I hadn't seen this variation before. Thank you very much for posting.
Frodo's secret weapons are fear,surprise, ruthless efficiency and an almost fanatical devotion to Helio Gracie. Oh, wait, that's the BJJ Inquisition. Well, same thing :)
