Leg weave and lasso all you want, but some things are De La Riva and some things are just funky De La Riva-esque moves. This tricksy little sweep, ideal for taking down an opponent close to the ground, comes straight outta Rio and from The Master himself.
Invisible Jiu-Jitsu shuttled this one back from the BJJ motherland, and we’re grateful he did. For one, it’s always a joy to hear lasso pronounced “lass-oooooo.” (It makes us feel worldly.) And then there’s how stupidly easy it is. You grip sleeves, DLR, lasso with the opposite foot, sit up….and yeah, that’s pretty much it. Gravity and your opponent do the rest as you sit back, and as long as you keep the lasso and your knee in their armpit you’ll end up right in side control.
