Ah man beat me to it!
He is referring to the awesome moderator named Swpthleg here at MMAF!
That's pretty clever. I was slow on that one.
I like scissor sweep since it's the first I learned, but I'm not nearly as good at it as I would like to be. I guess I don't load the guy up on my shins well enough, 'cause often times he'll scramble over when I go for it (which is my go-to defense, as well). I like it, though, when a guy will just try to base and stay in place, 'cause then you can go to a push sweep.

If I have a partner who's my size or smaller, I can use the elevator sweep OK, but it's a total fail if my partner is any bigger than me.
Stephan Kesting had a good article about butterfly sweeps, which I think I'll post and study up on.

Kimura sweep does appear to be the favorite here.
What's head and arm sweep? Is that like the quarter-nelson neck crank sweep or something else?
