Just before you scissor sweep someone, your shin should not be parallel to the ground, but at a 45 degree angle, right?
But JUST before you execute the sweep, should your knee drop down to the hip level of your opponent, i.e. should your shin be parallel to the ground at that moment in time?
In this case, before you execute the sweep, your shin is at a 45 degree angle and as soon as you manage to sucker your opponent into pressuring into you, you drop your knee down so that now your shin is parallel to the ground, and now you pull with your arms and scissor your legs to sweep him.
Do you agree that this is how you should do the scissor sweep?
I have heard guys advocate both methods. I just wanted to hear what you guys think. Are there any pros and cons to each method?
