    Caught a banana split yesterday. This same guy whipped me like 12-0 and then even worse 20-0 but we fought three times and I caught a submission.

    Yeah he didn't seem to know the set up. Works one time. Thinking about posting it in a few places and maybe having it go a little viral in the bjj community.

    If you add #10p4l on it it's bound to get shares, and a beating from your coach!

    Hahaha

    Instragram is good for the viral clips nowadays!

    nice work! I hadn't heard of that sub, how does the pressure apply? from pulling against adductor muscles and associated tendons?
    I have to say, the look on his face was priceless (probably akin to mine during many rolls against higher belts)

    having not experienced this sub, it looks like the opponents flexibility could be a factor, but I guess you keep going to their limit?

    in addition, I had this in my head the whole way through :D

    Banana split is reliant on flexibility to a degree. If you can do the splits it will only work if it's done correctly. After the flexibility it becomes more about the ball and socket joint not going that far back.

    It is defined as a groin stretch and is legal at white belt (for adults, masters and seniors).

    Mushroom De-powered to come back better than before.

    Works great if your opp has a flexibility of hardened adamantium.

    Random thought, the tenth planet warm up app, and YouTube channel has all their warm up "technique flows" on it, no real detail, but it shows all the options from tenth planet specific positions, as well as good general "regular BJJ" positions.

    Just seen it on instagram, with tenth planet hashtags all over it, and NO WATERMARKs, you've just missed out on a lot of free stuff!!

    GrapplerRoyale was the Instagram channel.

    Good job on all the 10th planet hashtags, you should of put an #11thplanet in too, just to make it a wierd conspiracy.

    Or #roundearth!
