    Nothing too complicated, but you don't see this everyday

    Not to bring in the BJJ vs Wrestling thing, but we train that a lot in BJJ, or at least at my academy. Andre Galvao likes it.

    Jon Jones also did it in his fight against Ryan Bader, if you want an example between two wrestlers.

    I could see that. I guess in wrestling the inherent danger is if they catch you mid-jump, you're royally screwed. The bottom wrestler is known for explosive double-legs (he was 5th at the Cadet World Championships last year) so there is some amount of risk to it.

    This works well when the opponent is in on a single and his hand are locked and its hard to get around him.

    I have tried this, but with no luck. Whenever I get my leg back and try to kick over, the guy catches one of my legs. I can usually butt drag and get the TD, but still no luck. This is in wrestling BTW.

    I definitely agree the risk involved with this move, especially in freestyle wrestling, is much greater than some of the other grappling arts. Your back goes towards the mat, it fails. Just uploaded this tonight, some more great scrambles, all in freestyle. Again, these are fairly risky in freestyle since back exposure towards the mat = giving up points (unlike folk style/grappling/etc.)
