    Does anybody know what a "half guard escape to a single leg" is? Could you please explain or better yet link a video showing what this is. This is listed on Big John McCarthy's site and I am not entirely sure I know what he is referring to.
    Thanks!

    It's exactly what it sounds like. You escape to a single on the leg you have trapped. I haven't used it in live rolling, but I'm pretty sure it's a solid technique.

    Here is Jeff monson showing it as another option to the half guard sweep.

    You can also use it when the guy tries to stand up in your half guard.

    For some reason, I haven't been able to figure out Monson's version yet. We have reviewed it class, and I've tried it a few times rollling.

    I like to rotate to the outside of the trapped leg v. towards the inside. Watch starting at 2:27:

    Sorry for the crappy resolution.

    Anyways, you still end up in the same place, more or less.

    It's one of my bread and butter sweeps.

    Nice sweep Christian. For some reason that is not what I was picturing. The problem, which is often the case, is that techniques have so many different names and some are more descriptive than the others.

    Thanks a lot guys I appreciate your help!:icon_chee

    BJM's site also refers to a "Hip over sweep" I assume he is referring to the "hip bump sweep".

    Any guesses?

    Go train man, not ask about everything you see on internet.

    I do train. I need to be able to identify it, by that name, for an official's class.

    ssssmashing,

    You're right, there is ambiguity in the nomenclature. Hip over sweep, to me, sounds like a basic kimura sweep?

    The best thing to do is go ask Felicia, Salseda, and the rest for clarification.

    Let us know which one they're talking about.
