I'll, of course, get us started.
Favorite: Pendulum/Flower Sweep, without a doubt! It feels SO awesome to pull off and it's pretty versatile. You can do it in the spur of the moment to capitalize on someone's mistake or inattention, but it's also a great way to compliment or follow up on your armbar attempts. Also goes well with gift-wrapping or any time you can secure an arm. ITZJUSTSOAWESOME!
Best: See above. Though I'm infatuated with it, as if I just learned it yesterday, the pendulum sweep has been a staple of my game for the last year or so.
Worst: Butterfly Sweep. I can land the elevator sweep (one butterfly hook) on fair occasion, but even then, not very consistently on decent people. With two hooks, I can't do crap. It's very sad. I should get to work on fixing this, considering how valuable a tool this is.
I think sweeps are cooler than subs and this topic gets me all excited. Look forward to hearing from you guys.
this would basically be my post so I just quoted yours heh
The only thing is sometimes I hit this other sweep that I can't recall the name of, basically your shin goes across thier hips and siccor your legs, might even be called the Scissor Sweep I don't recall.
I might be better at that one then the Flower Sweep but I love to see the Flower in action and when it works I'm smiling before I've even hit Top heh.
