I liked the comments that both of you made at the end regarding partner feedback. My favorite training partners and I do a lot of talking while drilling newly taught positions. We talk about tightness, weight balance, escape tendencies, etc. This seems to be a relatively under discussed part of our cerebral sport.

This is a really, really important technique to learn if you want to navigate your way around the half guard!

Here's why something that seems absolutely unbearable when you start training will eventually seem like 'Meh, just another day at the office...'

I'm surprised how high in the air he was taking him despite not having full extension of his left leg. It seems you may be able to the same move but explosively and send the guy over his own head onto his back. It's a muscle move and could hurt a training partner if not careful but seems a possibility.
