Sometimes, our opponent will dig their legs into the ground when you pull them into you, which can give them a good post to block the sumi gaeshi, and also make it hard to hit the rocking chair sweep. That’s when we can abandon the body lock and collect their legs for a simple back sweep.
The key here is to make sure you use your butterfly hooks to draw their legs into you as close as possible. However, even if they are able to make a strong base, we can switch from the simple double knee thrust back sweep into a powerful double foot kick sweep.
