hook sweep: closed guard

I had some success with this move against beginners last year and I'm
thinking about reincorporating it into my game. Just wanted to know
what y'all thought about this move.

Starting from full, closed guard: I'm sweeping to my right.

1) I shift my hips out to the left.
2. I grapevine their left leg with my right leg.
3. I get the over/under grip, underhook on their right side. Sometimes
here I don't get the underhook but instead push on their deltoid--it
helps to turn them over.
4. I circle my left leg in to get the butterfly hook.
5. I sit up. Because my hips are shifted out to the left a bit, my body is
already at the 45 angle; this increases my chances of falling back to my
side instead of my back.
6. I fall back onto my side and kick them over.

Is this a solid move, or just some trash I made up :)

no comments?

Do you remove your right leg grapevine before you sweep?

It sounds like a solid move to me, although I haven't seen this grapevine version before.

a BB I know has been doing it very effectly since he wa a blue belt


same as a basic butterfly sweep, to wit--

you'll need an overhook on the side you are sweeping towards to
prevent him from stopping the sweep by posting, unless your plan is to
force him to post and then attack that arm.

on the other side, people traditionally go with an underhook, to help
secure the top position after the sweep is completed. i've had some
success with pushing the deltoid instead, which helps to force them

in theory, this sweep should work as long as you can secure the
upper body, scoot your hips out to the side, and then sit up and fall
back onto your side.

the reason is that when you both hit the ground, neither one of you is
really on the bottom anymore. Your chests are facing each other and
both people are on their sides. From here it's easy to use your hook in
combination with the scissoring motion from your grapevine to "flip"
the unit that the two of you are making so that you end up on top.

i think.
