    It's fun to do as slowly as you possibly can, just to tease your partner.

    I like to do a variation of this but without holding the arm. of course people just post with it so no one gets swept by it, but then they open themselves up for the submission. I got 3 triangles in a row then 1 gogoplata by doing this. it's good because people don't like to be swept and mounted so they post then there is a look of realisation and panic.

    Yes. I know what this is now, I use it quite often. It helps to twist your hips when going for an armbar or to catch triangles. A good move.

    I wish people would stop renaming moves. It gets confusing.

    I always nail a mounted triangle from these. Probs my favourite sweep. I thought it was called flower though.

    Personally i feel the pendulum sweep is more fiiting to the move ie your outside leg does a pendulum movemnet to rock him forward and help getting you to the angle near his knees then it pendulums back to sweep underneith his leg.

    I don't like the name flower sweep because one i don't get the relation to the sweep really and to it sounds a bit gayish.. like whoo 'im guna use my flower power sweep on you you big bully'

    I know them as two slightly different things. Flower is more a push-lift over your leg which is planted on the floor, pendulum involves big hip motion and swinging of the leg

    Look at the way Xande sweeps at 2.20 of this vid (two examples back to back)
