YEAH, WE KNOW. YOU CATCH BROWN BELTS WITH THIS INVERTED SWEEP FROM JITS MAG AND ROBSON MOURA ... ALL THE TIME.


Grapplers, let's get back to the kind of stuff we know you really love:  ulta-sophisticated, highly technical, physically demanding, low percentage and yet extremely entertaining and beautiful Jiu Jitsu from the world's best grappling talent.  Hell yeah. 

When you watch the technique below from Jits Mag and Robson Moura (one of the best BJJ athletes and instructors of this era), it's easy to get discouraged and think something like "I can't even bust a decent simple sweep and I'm about as flexible as a 90-year geezer, why I gotta be trying some inverted trickery like dat, DSTRYR?"  First of all, grappler, you need to be a little more grammatically correct.  But, more importantly, you can't simply look at this as a how to, step-by-step technique.  Instead, look to it for inspiration and guidance.  Plus, it just looks sick and a grappler can dream.

Side note:  For those of you who do this kind of thing all the time, just look at it as an exceptional example by one of the best technicians around.

  1. tried this yesterday. it works, right up until they tuck their elbow so you can't get your heel under their armpit. Then, switch grips and L sweep into armbar anyway... less fancy, higher percentage.
