Integrated a new technique tonight!

Thanks to my training partners, I've started integrating a new technique into my arsenal. The most exciting one, is the tomoe-nage from DLR. I start off with my regular 2 on 1 grip. If people choose to stand up square to me, I grab the same side lapel and wait for whenever they start pushing into me to sweep them to mount. If they decide to come back on the ground, I've seen people put the same side knee down, opening up the scissor sweep with the knee push. Exciting times!

Secondly, I've started integrating two new passes : the over-under pass, with a deep belt grip, and a near side overhook half guard pass, which prepares an armbar once the pass is complete. Doubly exciting times!
