Last month at 10th Planet Van Nuys we worked on the twister roll from twister side control. The twister roll is one of my favorite ways to get the twister. Recently though I have found myself using the twister roll as a means to take my opponents back. In the video below grappling ace Ryan Hall demonstrates his variation of the twister roll that he uses to take his opponents back. What I like about Ryan’s method is that he is able to hit the twister roll without the use of the lockdown. Personally I really like using the lockdown to keep control of my opponent but having another option is always best. Remember we will be testing the back at the end of the month. If you need any help drilling or have questions please let me know!
