    That first one is pretty close to the Elbow Chop application I mentioned. I shift to controlling the elbow from underneath and connect it to my center. Otherwise, pretty much the same thing. I like the throw - a good extension of our Over the Back throw (some lazy naming in NGA) - I'm going to want to work on that one.

    They are not throws I would learn for practicality, in that they would take too long to learn from a position I don't get too often. But definitely some cool ideas there.

    That particular throw is one of the easiest I know of. And with the way we (me and the folks I train) move and manipulate folks, it's closer to more common positions for us.

    You don't need to drop both of your knees on the ground to throw your opponent. You will lose your mobility for no good reason.
