lol. I made a parody BJJ tutorial with my oldest daughter yesterday, and posted it to a private (gym only) FB group: effective techniques against much smaller opponents.
Smaller opponents are the worst to roll against, though. So much space for them to occupy first.

I have a partner who is a 5’4” power lifter. So, short, with even shorter legs, but explosive, and not “small” per se. Maybe 175-180. He can reguard with ridiculous ease. I basically can only use twister side control or kesa gatame on him. Regular side control is basically useless. If he passes your guard, on the other hand, reguarding is ridiculously hard.

I feel I speak for most when I say this is not the appropriate place to brag about your sexual shenanigans and conquests. Keep it classy. Thank you.

This is a dumb question but I’m bored. Does grey wool cavalry twill fabric exist? Everyone talks about its superiority to flannel for trousers but for RTW I only find it in khaki/olive. What’s the deal?

Just counted 10 grey twill cloth samples in the Holland & Sherry Dakota book. Every other twill book has at least one or two. It's practically ubiquitous.

It's the opposite of flannel in every way. Worsted and woolen flannel has a nap. Twill does not. Twills have a design element to the weave that distinguishes the variations, calvary, whipcord, covert. Flannels are worsted; tighter weave. Woolen flannel is softer and often has a marled effect but no pattern created from the weave. Twills don't bag or stretch like flannels. Twills don't retain heat like a flannel is prone to do.

Double Wham. Now here is where I over analyse the material. Is it really better than flannel?Or different use case?
I wouldn't call it better, just different. Cavalry twill wears a little cooler, and the texture is smoother than flannel. The texture really depends on the fabric though. I have cavalry twill from O'Connell's and Rota; the O'Connell's are smooth with a slight sheen while the Rota's are more of a matte. I prefer the Rota's for what it's worth.

An angel descends from the heavens. Rota I assume?
Yes, also our own tailoring line made by Sartoria Carrara for a single-pleated option
