    If the oppenent is standing, what are some good de la riva sweeps? Should you go straight to sit up guard instead? Any de la riva help would be appreciated. Thanks

    All sweeps that can be done from DLR when your opponent is kneeling can also be applied when your opponent stands. In addition, a few new sweeps open up (the tripod & sickle sweep, for example). Instead of thinking of specifics when it comes to sweeping, just try to simplify the process globally:

    -"How can I disrupt my opponent's base?"
    -"How can I take away my opponent's post?"

    These 2 steps should occur sequentially (i.e. you off-balance your opponent to your right, he will likely use his left arm to post to your right...so take away that arm and you will get your sweep).

    For some specifics, here's an entry about DLR in my log: Post 34 - 07.09.2010

    The back take is the best option because it puts you in the most advantageous position. It's low percentage until you practice it a lot, but most moves are that way.

    And then yeah, the sit up guard (I think it's a dumb name but that's what Saulo calls it) is the next best thing. Try to grip a sleeve and pass it between his legs to your other hand, and then spin through your opponent's legs in either direction to get the sweep. If you spin toward the back, grab the belt with your free hand and pull so he falls on his ass. If you spin toward the front, hook the free leg with your free arm and force him to somersault.

    The other high-percentage option is to just stand up and single-leg the guy.

    I'm guessing the 206 means you train in Seattle, TS. Where do you train? I train at Gracie-Barra.
