Looking for some help with the sweep that the 10th planet guys call the Old School.
I have seen it on JJM's DVD but Eddie does it a little bit different since he uses the lockdown position with his legs. The problem I am having is actually getting the sweep.
Let's say I'm in half guard and it's my opponents right leg that is trapped:
I can get lockdown and stretch him out, get my underhook with my left arm (sometimes deep enough to grab his left foot) and my right hand grabbing his left hook/ankle.
Ok, so when I'm ready to go sweep, what happens with my legs? I have watched him do the sweep in slow motion on the Twister DVD but something just isn't right. Can anybody walk me through it? I know you gotta let go of the lockdown and come to your right knee, but something just doesn't feel right and I'm not able to get to my knee comfortably.
Thanks in advance.
