I felt this topic was worth its own thread following the discussion here. I know I've also seen quite a few people trying to figure out what the reverse omoplata is (and I've answered their questions before), so I'd like to give it some more attention. First off, what's a reverse omoplata? No, it's not a counter to the omoplata (which I've had people ask). Go here and find out: http://www.tampabjj.com/2005/11/17/reverse-omoplata/ Some people call it an "inverted" omoplata; maybe that makes more sense to you. Looking at just the finishing position, you can see that it's "reverse" or "backwards" to the omoplata in a couple ways. A normal omoplata ends with them facedown, and you looking facing towards their head. A reverse omoplata ends with them face up, and you looking towards their feet. You can also think of it as the backwards version of the americana with the legs from modified scarf hold (seen here). It's a kimura with the legs from reverse modified scarf hold. My other purpose for this thread is seeing how else others have been doing this move. The colinm's Superplata where you grab their wrist sounds awesome. I'm hoping for me stuff like that. Here's my addition: Thinking about it as a kimura with the legs from reverse modified scarf hold, you can see how to apply it by just putting their arm under your leg like you would if you were facing the other way and going for the americana with your legs. The hardest part is getting their arm trapped deep enough. You'll often only get a straight elbow lock, which is easier to escape. You'll probably have to let them roll away from you a bit to get enough space to hook your leg around their arm deep enough. If you've been using twister side control from Eddie Bravo's book, you might want to play around with that, since the position are almost the same as reverse modified scarf hold. Anyone else have something to add, or is this really as obscure of a technique as it seems to have been?
