Just wanted to share some cool videos I came across on youtube for scissor sweep variations. I knew about some, but the guy mentions some really cool ones that have worked well for me.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Yeah I always go for scissor sweeps, they are a bit hard and you gotta learn to make it just one motion rather then just - take a few seconds to set up - then go for the sweep.

Well like kaiz told em... Happy training... :)

I've been working on them out of my long half guard with some (little) success but I still see it as viable. There are two people I roll with pretty consistently since they are around my size and level and both have commented on the sweeps.
I'm probably trying to make this work because my half guard is pretty strong and I like the idea of adding more elements to it. Especially those that will work without requiring any form of underhook.

i find with scissor sweeps work better on beginners once you got a good base its hard so i like to go for truck rolls cause it works on everyone
