Leandro Lo Sweep
I've been wanting to learn this sweep ever since I saw Leandro hit it in competition at this year's World Championships. Trying to replicate it from memory, I was making a major mistake in terms of the second, deep leg, and how to place it. It's great to get a look at Leandro himself explaining how it is done.
I had been inserting the second leg as if doing a single X sweep, a la Marcelo Garcia. In actuality, you insert the leg as you would a de la Riva hook, and then the spider guard leg goes behind the knee of the opposite leg (like you would in a tripod sweep).
