STOP FAILING AT SINGLE LEGS AND TRANSITION TO THE JUDO THROW.

Actually, you still failed at the single ... technically.
Yeah.  Do that.  It's easy.

Maybe it's not so easy, but it's definitely doable, and today you're going to learn it.  It's a fact that BJJ grapplers generally lack in the takedown and stand-up game. The truth is, the sport aspect of BJJ encourages grapplers to bypass takedowns and work from the guard.  It's just the reality of Jiu Jitsu in it's present-day status.  Athletes simply don't train takedowns and stand-up as much as other positions, since a takedown is worth a mere 2 points in a match and one's opponent can easily avoid that game by pulling guard.  The result is that a lot of BJJ athletes have minimal or hardly serviceable stand-up games and BJJ has become largely about passing the guard, and inversely, sweeping from the guard (and, of course submissions).

But, let's change that.  At least for today.  Today let's watch Bellator contender, JJ Ambrose, demo a kickass transition from failed single leg to deadly O Goshi hip throw (compliments of Phuket Top Team).  And, he does in all in radical pair of Pony Club Grappling Gear spats.  Bravo, sir (even though both he and his partner, Anthony Leone, are violating the DSTRYR/SG "Put A Shirt On" policy)!
