mini 50/50 seminar

points vs. advantages
bottom game

1. half spider to inside berimbolo entry - arm inside, sweep
2. deep dlr entry- grab opposite leg, enter and sweep

leg lean posture
1. foot cross (sleeve/lapel grip) to leg drag position

2. from feet- shin down
2a. ary toe hold roll
2b. scoot leg down to bend of knee and lean weight. use elbow to open lock. underhook leg. stay low.

?: vs. stalling leg cross- specific foot work

-push lock down (barely works)
-inside knee pressure
-high 50/50 lock at hips, not below knee

x variation

1. lapel/sleeve grip to knee push sweep
2. they post foot- double hook x-guard entry- pendulum and extend bottom hook (at bend of knee) and come up
