    Are you talking about the figure four that starts with the stomp to the back of the knee? That's really just a calf slicer using his own leg. I instructed at police academies as well. It is a martial arts move that works well against an untrained opponent, or if you get to attack from behind, but most cop moves are meant to subdue an untrained or reluctant opponent, which means any smart person against a cop, because he has a gun, a taser, and pepper spray. One on one though, a cop is just another dude.

    I've trained with a lot of big sherriff's deputies. Guys who are 100 lbs heavier then me. and without the authority of the badge and the weapons and numbers, they are not that special. They can get beat up and submitted or KO'd like everyone else.

    It's laying flat on your stomach with your hand cuffed on your back with someone crossing your legs and pressing them towards your butt. If they are busy they put the legs between the hands and back and let them "hold" the legs down. It sort of looks like a wrangled cattle.

    Yeah, I know that move. The important thing is that the hands are cuffed. which is not actually that easy to do, ime. Most people don't automatically fight for wrist control the way MMA fighters, BJJ practioners, and wrestlers, do.

    Usually, the takedown to cuff is initiated, if not from behind, using a position called the 100%. You have an underhook and you grab the the shoulder and use the leverage to torque their arms behind them. No one who knows BJJ (as opposed to having gone to a few practices) is going to give up that position willingly. Which is what you see in MMA all the time against the cage - one dude trying for the leg takedown, other other guy using his underhook to pull him up and trying to get to the 100% while driving the opponent's head to the ground with the other hand, or pull it up, depending on the position.

    And the legs crossing is the calf crank. It's really painful to have your calf compressed that way. I learned that the hard way the first time I rolled with a 10th planet guy. I didn't even know that it was a submission, just that it was extremely painful. I tapped to pain, to my everlasting shame.

    Calf slicer is unpleasant.

    I wish @brad-t was here to tell you all how stupid you are for discussing/arguing fighting techniques on a men's FASHION webforum.

    What if we argued pedantically about proper grammar instead? Would that make you feel better? For example, why don't we talk about how you used the past indicative instead of the past subjunctive to express your desire for @brad-t's presence here to talk smack and law down fashion law?

    Is this about drag balls? Did you show police officers how to throw shade? Were they just an average guy in a dress or super fabulous?

    I have been thinking of getting a fashion Noragi that is made to the same durability specs as my competition gi. But not in the double sashiko. Maybe in one of those composite weaves like the diamond weave, or something like that. Also, a hoodie of some sort - maybe a "drug rug" or something like that.

    If anyone got this and doesn't want it, please let me know. I'm probably a size 4, maybe size 3.

    Beware of a new member 'Kimberly Sander' sending out spam PMs.

    I've already reported the PM to a mod.

    One of the mods also got the PM and exercised the nuclear option on "her."
