So I recently learned this sweep in class and frankly I think its just cool as hell. I also recently bought Jean Jacques book "Black Belt Techniques" and basically the wing sweep, taking the back, and getting the armlock all go together very nicely. The other day I worked with my instructor just on the wing sweep, doing all the transitions that I just mentioned, doing set ups for the wing sweep, and even going into omoplatas and variations off the sweep depending on how your opponent bases, and I've got to say I LOVE this sweep. I have a very good scissor sweep (old faithful for me) and this sweep works great in conjunction with it, not to mention the fact that I've noticed that I can really launch people with this wing sweep, so here's my questions: 1. Do many of you guys here on the forum use this sweep? If not, why not? Just curious. 2. How exactly do you defend this sweep? Honestly it seems that once they get your arm trapped and get a belt or lat grip, you're screwed. There is always a way to beat any technique, but after seeing just how many options I have from this position when I'm the man on bottom, it just seems damn near unbeatable. I would post a vid of the sweep, but its an excerpt from one of Jean Jacque Machado's instructional dvds and I don't want to do that. The sweep itself is on youtube though. Thanks for any advice/opinions.
