Look, I watch a lot of stuff outside of class. I'm just gonna have one thread where I link techniques I want to try out in open mat so that I don't monopolize this whole category.

First:

Saw this in a Dante Leon instructional and want to put it in the lab during open mat. He emphasizes that in order to get them overhead you bring your knees to your chest first rather than just extending your legs. The goal isn't to sweep them overhead (no way to stop arm posts) but once your partner has posted their hands it makes their legs very light and easy to wrestle up into.

While passing with near knee through - control wrist and dive over top for inverted north/south. Already do this, but trying to force this position first seems like a good way to make it more consistent.

crucifix guillotine - why use something like an RNC or armbar when you can instead use a guillotine?

Love the thread idea.  Like a journal of ideas you wanna explore, but can get comments on by others & your coach.  Very cool!

Crucifix guillotine might be a neck crank, or seen as such by a ref.  I don't personally mind the technique at all, but finishing as he does might be a crank.  Let's play with it

Some reverse de la riva stuff:

Kiss of the dragon - looks fancy but is actually really easy. The starting RDLR position is important, I think. Dante Leon specifies that your hook leg should have active toes, and your non-hook leg should be framing on their hip. The non-hook leg is used to push opponent to the side to make their leg lighter and easier to spin under.

Kiss of the dragon to x-guard when you can't control the hips well enough to finish back-take

Been wanting to mess with body lock passing. Seems very useful when I cannot get underneath a training partners legs to scoop a double under pass. I think doing this pass as shown by Lachlan until half-guard and then switching to "PMA half" would be great.

@greg-st-pierre This pass is a nightmare to defend.  @josh-norton has been working it for a while.
