I see these two techs as a variation on the same theme. They both begin with the same countergrab and stepping to 9:00. The variation comes with the next step. With Breaking the Cross, you step forward to about 12:00 with the right foot and pivot to face the opponent, ducking the head and clearing his hands off and crossing his elbows while gripping his wrists; break his elbows across your knee and finish with a kick. With The Bridge, you step back to about 7:00 and duck your head, removing his grip; then step forward to where you were, gripping his wrists with his arms crossed at the elbows, to be broken as you step forward. Finish with elbows and hammerfists, etc. What I see as the common thread here is that this is essentially the same technique, with a variation if the attacker grabs and pushes you forward, or grabs and pulls you back. We have the clearing movements, and we end up with his arms crossed at the elbows for the break, in both techs. Comments, anyone?
