    I train at a will/machado school. i just went on youtube to look up frontsweep instructionals and came up with only one by a couple of kids (it was actually very nice) its a basic technique so i'm guessing that in the greater bjj community its known by another name. i cant for the life of me think of what it could be. so a little help would be appreciated.

    its the over the head sweep to mount that the helicopter armbar comes from.

    Be a little more specifc.

    The word front and the other one sweep leave open a lot of ideas.

    I know it sounds lame, but i've got like 5 "front sweeps" and by 5 I could mean less than 5, but 5 sure sounds like a great number right now.

    Looks like a balloon sweep to me.

    It's a tomoe nage sweep, Saulo shows it in his book. It's also a judo throw
