    I've heard talking about it in another thread, and asked you there, but you didn't reveal it to me. You probably said it sometime but this seemed easier than going through all your posts with a fine-tooth comb.

    You said it's good, and it works for you, and it works almost to a fault....I must know....

    a personal message is usually the best way to ask a question like this...

    These are my two bread and butter half guard sweeps also.

    Recently been trying to add the Electric chair if they over defend the Old school.

    So far been having pretty good success with switching between them.

    That's the driving sweep? I did that the other day. I was attempting old school and I couldn't get the leg so I ended up doing that sweep. Good to know. Thanks for posting those.

    wouldn't it just be easier to take the back from that position?

    I'd imagine most people would whizzer you and then you'd knee tap them for the driving sweep.

    ok, just in the instruction for that move in Frodo's log, the guy wasn't wizzering, and i was thinking, just take the back... also in Frodo's vid of his tournament, i also saw that taking the back was a real option...

    Taking the back is the first part of that half guard series. Most people end up fighting that, so I end up sweeping instead. I feel I have more options from side control anyway, and will transition to mount and back control afterward.

    Frodo, what would you say your percentage of finishing from the back is?

    ok, since this not a simple PM question anymore -- why do you prefer the getting-on-your-knees-driving method to the, i guess, more traditional foot-grab/old school way?
