Phil Migliarese and Belt Testing

This weekend I traveled back to my old BJJ school in Syracuse, NY for a Phil Migliarese seminar and a belt testing ceremony. Phil showed us a couple moves and I would like to outline one move quickly before I forget:

From kneeling, get an under hook on one side
Place one foot on the inner thigh of opp
Use your over foot to kick opp knee out while elevating your foot for the sweep

It's pretty simple and basically sums up all of the moves Mr. Migliarese showed up. He's a however many degree blackbelt and all of his moves were generally pretty simple and yet were still effective. That just further reinforces the importance of basics in this game.
