    It's a cool move, I was the camera man for that video clip with The Gerbil :icon_chee

    Works a treat and you do indeed feel like a rock star when you pull it off :icon_chee

    legit back take/pass. I like it. Seems like a good alternative to the usual double under-leg pass.

    after watching the video and showing it to my instructor, he liked it but showed how the person being stacked can always just turtle up (if i'm wrong, just let me know).

    He showed an alternative version that prevents the person on the bottom from turtling or moving into a different position. Hopefully I can film it and put it up soon.

    cool pass. If the guy turtles then you take the back from turtle. Otherwise its a nice alternative if a guy wants to retain his guard.
