    Whilst the underhook on the leg is more obvious it is not the grip that does the technique. It is the legs and the hips. I can perform the technique successfully with no grip at all. Further, I've trained with 2 World Judo Champions who have used the underhook grip successfully at a world and Olympic level of Judo when sweeping or rolling an opponent into an armbar.

    This comment is surely trolling. A good competitior needs a mixed tool bag. Sometimes a weak method fits the purpose at the time.

    Hi

    The following is an appraisal of your performance. Overall you do well at your level and win. I am purely providing this appraisal to help demonstrate that just because someone performs suboptimally, it does not mean that they are sh*t or that they are a fraud or not worth their grade.

    Your stand up appears from this example to be below that of a Judo Yellow belt with 6 months training and is certainly far lower than that of the BJJ blue belts that I work with.

    You came out with your back arched upwards and bent over at the hips. This enables your opponent to get a dominant over the top grip. It also means that you have to settle for a sh*tty leg/armpit grip. You also have a square on stance making it very easy to throw you with a variety of forward throws.

    You should come out back straight, knees bent with your elbows close to your body. You should also avoid a square on stance and come out with either your left or right foot advanced.

    As a right hander against another right hander, you should look to immediately secure a grip on your opponents sleeve and stop them grabbing your lapel or reaching over your back. This will destroy their ability to take you down. Only then do you look for a lapel or collar grip.

    As a right hander against another right hander, you should look for a lapel grip feeding from your left to your right hand. Always take the inside grip unless you are mich stronger then your opponent. Again this can be used to destroy your opponents ability to take you down.

    By fortune you manage to pull guard and your opponents own relative inexperience prevents them from a) totally squashing you and b) skipping straight past your legs and gaining total control on the floor.

    On the floor the arm bar attempt is okay. However, your mount is no where near as strong as it could be. This enables your opponent to get back to half guard. On the mount you either want to hook your legs in by your opponents knees and use hip pressure to pin your them down. Or you want to take a high mount much closer to your opponents head.

    I find the grip does help in my experience and i try to grip as far down the gi pant leg as possible. As i said before the subtlety does come into it.

    It's not trolling its just the fact I dont think anyone would expect a purple belt to teach a lower percentage move when there is a higher percentage success and lower risk option.

    Under-hooking the leg is equally valid and I've been taught both methods by black belts.

    underhooking the leg and bringing yourself under them is a different sweep though. very different mechanics. i taught both last week

    What I look for in a blue belt is Lagarto to say they are a blue belt and that's the same with all the other belts. My job is really easy, I just have to train hard. And when and if I'm good enough to move up a belt he will give it me and if I'm not good enough I won't get it but still train because I ENJOY IT.
