Thanks, nice detail on the grips.
You tricksy hobbitses, I would never expect that. Looks interesting, I'll have to play around with it.
I actually learned this with the belt grip before I even learned the scissor sweep.
Cool sweep! Thanks for putting that up. Sean has some awesome Jiujitsu.
It's clever because people now sometimes expect the sweep and will naturally move that way which can only aide you in doing so.
You're putting together a great channel. Keep up the good work.
very nice sweep, like hes highlight on youtube too
loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool this vid is almost as funny as the art marshall side control escape, a reverse scissor sweep hahaha, you guys kill me
keep up the good work!
anyone think about how this could work from half guard? I'm going to try it out, though it might need some adjustments.
I like that sweep
I lol'd at this post.
But seriously, good stuff Dan and Sean.
My judo sensei does this all the time and people fly when he does it. Its his favorite technique on the ground. I knew when I saw the thread it was gonna be this sweep, I called it reverse scissor sweep a few years ago, so atleast I was right hehe.
A guy at my gym started using the reverse scissors sweep from guard a few months back. I use it from time to time and like it. I also do a similar sweep from half guard as you are suggesting with success. It throws a lot of people off that haven't seen it before.
I like this sweep. I actually use it as a combo off of the normal scissor sweep. prefer to reach around his head with my "sweeping" arm and grip his armpit. I find this gives me some more leverage, especially in no-gi. But I really like the way Sean does it too, and he explains it really well!
That cross-grip detail is really nice, especially when going for it just yourself. I wonder if you could substitute a high-underhook or an overhook instead of a wrist-grab, too??? That might work for no-gi a little easier (and gi) for me.
You can hit this type of sweep from half guard whenever you can get the cross grip. I do it when I can't get the back take.
I LOLed too...and i seperated 2 of my ribs at Best of the West yesterday. =( The laughing hurt!
Any ideas on how to modify for no-gi?
Scissor sweep is my go to sweep from guard, I'm definitely going to give this one a bash espec as everyone know's now it's my go to lol.
Regarding the 'wrist grip', and then cross grip on the lapel - is the value of this so you can easily pull the person up onto the shin? I've never used a cross grip before but if it makes it easier to lift the opponent I can definitely see the benefits.
Also interested how you could do it for no gi, had a quick think but haven't had any great ideas.
Thanks very much TS.
