I am a Judo brown belt (Sankyu, first of 3 grades) who has been having alot of fun with no-gi lately, but a very specific situation keeps coming up. A lot of the guys I have worked with that didn't start in Judo of course go for singles and doubles. My training gives me a pretty good base and 95% of the time I stall them out. There are clearly many options from here, but the simplest and quickest (especially if they are bulldozing forward) is a counter called Tawara Gaeshi. I can't post video here from work but perhaps another kind sould will. Very simply, if you are sprawled with your opponent going for single or double, you reach down and wrap your arms around their waist (or grab belt/gi in Gi), sit your butt close to your heel and roll backwards. They will flip over the top of you quite easily, and the more force/momentum they contribute the faster it goes. Now here's the issue. With a waist-deep grab, you end up mostly under them, both facing up. I have gotten to where it's not so tough to at least end up on their side so I'm not stuck under their weight, and I grab at the ribcage instead of waist so I'm not SOOOO deep, but from here it just keeps turning into a scramble. My best tactic so far has been to drop my arm down and... ummm.... (I would describe it as an overhook, as they're arm is in my armpit, but it's North-South both facing up so that's a bit confusing) and trying to keep them down with head pressure on their ribs till I can get myself spun around for side control. This isn't exactly a position with a ton of leverage though and so it's hard for me to maintain control. Anybody have any ideas on this? I went to a MMA/No-Gi place in Savannah while on business and they had an hour-long wrestling class where I got this over, and over, and over. Everytime I roll no-gi it's just right there, staring me in the face and I have to think that there's at least a couple good options.
