This Thursday we worked on some deep half sweeps with TJ.

I've got to be honest and say my mind really isn't made up about the deep half. I've got the Jeff Glover DVD, and I sometimes find myself in the position - but I'm not totally sold on it, and I cannot convert the sweeps often as of yet. I also agree with those who say it is sort of antithetical to the founding principles of BJJ. It puts you in a bad position and lord knows on the street, you're going to eat a lot of punches.

But I'm in no position to turn my nose up at a technique that clearly works in competition. So I'm going to work on it.

These aren't the techniques TJ showed, but they are interesting and show some of the diversity of the position.
