Tornado Sweep from Half Guard - No-Gi - Roberto 'Cyborg' Abreu

3/26 - Heads up, I will visiting New York, and will be back Wed.
Watch the video and understand why this picture makes me cringe and be impressed all at the same time.
I believe I just decided what the best no-gi half guard sweep to give yourself a pulled groin with, and it's called the Tornado Sweep. Roberto 'Cyborg' Abreu shows us how he does it in the video below:

It's basically a modified pendulum from deep half guard, but damn. Check how he controls the near arm and far shin before he tosses his leg over, loads the opponent, then finishes the sweep.
Pull out the stretching exercises from Eddie Bravo's Rubber Guard book and work on that first before attempting, because I am definitely not responsible for any pulled groins that may result from trying this.
