Technique DescriptionEdit

As the opponent shoots in and grabs a double leg take-down, the defender goes over the shoulders and arms and locks his/her opponents body. The defender, while still holding the body lock tightly, then drops his/her weight down and backwards and uses the leverage from the body lock to fling the opponent behind the defender onto the opponents backside in one fluid motion. You can maintain the body lock all the way through to achieve a mount position.
