rundymc - I do that without cradling the head. That, at least, rarely elicits a tap as I have trouble getting a good angle on the legs.

It's a guaranteed guard pass though, and is currently my go to.
Cradling the head, I think, is what really enables you to crank the submission/disables your opponent from fighting it off. Phone Post

Roger that. I'll have to give it a shot next class.

I would like to see a video of this to really grasp the hold.

 

Also, if it is a nameless submission, I recommend calling it, the Kostakio. Sounds japanese and most would probably just assume it's japanese, but the true origins is an American UGer.

In all seriousness I've stumbled into what you've talked about before.. But I've always taken the back from it. I'm a small guy, short legs, haven't been confident to stretch someone out enough to tap and I find I usually end up with the back if not passing to triple attack Phone Post

Sounds kind of like some of the Sambo hip locks. But I don't know enough about what you are doing nor about Sambo hip locks to be sure.

I think you may think I'm referring to a regular cradle where your opponent is turtled up facing downward. The position I'm referring to is you being on top of a laid-down flat opponent who is trapping your leg in his half-guard. From there I hook his leg with my arm as if I'm trying to pry open his half-guard to free my trapped leg. Then I cradle his head toward my hooking arm/hand and connect my hands to an 'S-Grip', applying pressure to his groin, assuming that he is refusing to release his half-guard and let me pass. If he still doesn't let me pass than I use my trapped leg to really crank his legs far apart. At that point, even if he releases my trapped leg and abandons his half-guard, he is still in an extremely uncomfortable position and forced to tap. Like I said, I nailed it on a really strong, flexible kid. He was baffled because he was like, "I'm not sure what makes it work because I can still do a full split from my gymnastics days..."
