Once people start realizing that this type of legwork to set up the leg drag is basically just a lot of x guard type stuff but in a different plane, more techniques like this will start being developed.

Nice variation! I like bringing the outside knee behind the opponent's leg like that from the conventional berimbolo as well - Galvão teaches it in a few vids on his website. You can also do it from the deep half waiter sweep.

I feel that going to the leg drag instead of getting the hooks right away is actually safer, since the guy no longer has your outside leg to play with for toe holds, counter back takes etc.

Now, this video showing it from a sit-up guard makes me wonder if there is a way to do the knee-in berimbolo from a shin-to-shin sit-up guard (butterfly hook on the ankle), as a counter to the opponent attempting a back-step pass ... *Rushes to try on unsuspecting family member*

Here's another sweep I filmed a week or two ago that you guys might like. Not a berimbolo type sweep, but it is possibly my favorite sweep. http://youtu.be/kQDj3mFVIc0

PrisonMattressPuncher - 

Odd, I learned this technqiue a few years ago, but had no idea it was classified with a modified Berimbolo. I learn it exactly the same except instead of grabbing the belt initially with yourleft hand you grab his right sleeve and feed between the legs instead of the belt( then, your right hand goes to the belt at hip, like shown here).  I believe context to use this sweep was when opponent has a wide bas (and it was shown off a series of other seated sweeps).


Yep, I learned a similar version also without the lapel grab just as a sweep option from De La Riva when your opponent stands.

No I didn't develop this myself. I learned it from Jair Laurenco at Kimura Nova Uniao in Natal-RN Brazil on my last trip down there. If you're ever in the north east of brazil I strongly encourage you to go to Natal and to visit Kimura.
