    This is something not taught enough when teaching sprawling. There is actually a lot of different kinds of sprawling and a lot of subtle details to shot defense. Thanks for that video. You should record the other kinds and tips too (like using your hands, then arms and head position, hipping in vs sprawling out, sprawling straight vs sprawling one hip like that, etc) to block shots.

    Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't that sprawl a little risky? I feel like you risk giving your opponent half guard.

    You're wrong. The whole point of any sprawl is to make the leg and hip attacked as low and heavy as possible. That is what teaching a sprawl in this manner emphasizes. There are more details to a sprawl than even this video shows because there is a lot more going on when stopping a good shot then simply kicking your feet back and flopping.

    Like moving backward, not just moving your legs backward as you sprawl, I've been trying to put together a lesson on the sprawl for my club...and what happens is I keep running into the fact that everything I do is so small but natural that I always miss one little thing I do that makes a big difference.

    The sprawl isn't the start or end to stopping a shot, and really it is a cruel cruel mistress. Good post tho, gotta love the basics.
