26/07/2017 - BJJ Globetrotter Camp | Leuven 2017 | Scissor Sweep (Chris Haueter)

Class #858
BJJ Globetrotter Camp (Sportoase Leuven), Chris Haueter, Leuven, Belgium, 26/07/2017

Unlike last year, there wasn't as much of a clear distinction in structure between the two classes. This one felt like again a fair chunk of lecture, followed by technique (though again, it was within time). Haueter talked about proper shrimping, before getting into some details on the scissor sweep.

When you uncross, keep your legs tight so they can't feel the difference. Close guard, not necessarily closed guard, as somebody at the camp dubbed it (possibly Priit?). Establish your grip, stiff arming with your shin leg side arm. Load their weight onto their knee, chop and come up.

An interesting detail was when they adjust and block. To knock them off that adjustment, sit right up into them, then quickly drop back and do it again. That disrupts their newly aligned base, meaning you can complete the sweep.
