This is a simple throw that  anybody can do. Important points is that your opponent has to push into you. You need to fall to the side, hook underneath the knee and other leg scissoring for a sweep. Your arms need to stay extended. If you fall straight down it will not work.

In Judo, this is a sacrifice throw called Uki Waza or leg outside Uki Waza. Sacrifice throws are a great option since they are low risk. What’s the worse that could happen? That you basically pull guard.

Try this. BJJ world champion Erberth Santos uses this at the highest level.

BJJ coral belt Jean Jacques Machado shows a great way to do it.

Use these throws to safely launch fighters in BJJ, using judo principles and concepts.
