Mike Perez:
Master B saw me doing this one. Where we’ll be in little positions, like that, I’ll put a little hip, just to make him post, then I’ll launch into the triangle. It’s actually really low risk, but it works. Think about it: all you need is a whizzer, if you get a nice little hip. Not even an Uchi Mata, it’s hips. Then he’ll post, and then pull up the whizzer and go to the head. Yeah, just like that. That’s a great move.

So, let’s say a guy’s trying to body-lock me. I might get in here, hip in, they have to post, then I go to the collar, right there.

So then, as I land, I’ll be pulling on your head, avoiding the blow.

So, let’s say I go for a single, and you go to hip throw me.

Yeah, just like that. That’s a viral one.

Let’s say you’re on top of me. You’re passing my guard, this guy’s coming up… Come up for a single, and you’re stalling, get that hook under me.

It can win you matches, especially when a guy is really trying to come up. I land the most with guys who are trying to come up from the bottom.

All I’m going to do is post here.
