    I have reviewed a few of Telle's Turtle sweeps but maybe its a mental block or I'm too slow to nail them. My recent go to move is:

    <object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/DK2YA4prkdQ&hl=en"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/DK2YA4prkdQ&hl=en" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>


    Whats your go to move? Please share ... I really want to see if anyone uses any type of sweeps from Turtle. :)

    That's what I've been going for as well!
    My turtle is fairly strong, usually I wait for an opening to roll to guard or turn for a single/double leg.

    Usually I try to sweep/reverse to side. Basically if I am able to trap one of their arms, I try and sweep. I learned most of it from Ribeiros DVD "Advanced turte".

    There's basically two moves ... roll forward, or sit back.

    I usually try to roll forward, and if that doesn't work, then I sit back.

    If you want to try sweeps Telles style, you have to drive your hips and body deep under your opponent.

    kimura or shoulder roll to guard are my top choices, but there are probably ten or so different techniques I use, thinking about it, I'm nearly as comfortable in turtle as i am with the guard.

    Does anyone use the wrestling sitout to switch, and then take the opponents back? It looks easy when I watch vids of wrestling matches, but I can't seem to hit it. I think I'm lacking the explosiveness needed.

    Also, anyone have luck with the kimura reversal?

    I use the keylock reversal occasionally.


    I believe the wrestling technique you're referring to is called a "sucker drag". and it's awesome for bjj once you get it down.

    The kneebar is always the first thing I look for, but if I can't hit it right when I turtle or off some kind've transition then I usually can't get it. From there, it depends on my opponents skill level whether or not I want to try to roll to guard or attempt one of the 3 sweeps I go for from turtle.

    What does work for you? Telles is to hard to play against good guys, its almost impossible for me.

    Roll in random directions until I can get up

    I love rolling. It makes me feel like I'm exciting to watch.

    it just takes practice and timing like everything else. getting comfortable in turtle was the hardest part for me. making sure you keep your opponent off-balance and uncomfortable is also key, just don't ever let him get any grips.


    I don't like a couple sweeps in which telles wraps the leg behind him. I could see right away how that could end in a quick easy Reverse Omoplata. I do like most of the rest of them though
