Fight to Win CEO showcases several Outside Foot Sweep Variations


1527010_10202421821899008_1594805140_nDENVER, CO, February 3, 2014 – Today’s much anticipated edition of the TXMMA Technique of the Week features Fight to Win CEO and MMA and Jiu-Jitsu promoter Seth Daniels.

Chances are if you’ve competed in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) or no-gi grappling within the state of Texas over the past half-dozen years you already know of Seth. Together with his business partner Brett Boyce the two have held events all around the state from Austin and Houston to Dallas and Midland.

What some people (at least the newer ones up to purple belt) may not know is that Seth is an accomplished grappler as well. He’s currently ranked as a BJJ purple belt, training primarily at Colorado BJJ alongside 3rd degree black belt David Ruiz, Nobuo Yagai, Robert Wunderlich and others. And though he’s based in Colorado now Seth actually came up in Katy, TX where he developed strong fundamentals in Jiu-Jitsu and Judo beforehand.

Combining his judo acumen with his BJJ training, Seth Daniels has competed in most of the tournaments he puts on, from Europa and the Austin Open to the Texas State Championships. Throughout it all the one constant in his game has been his exceptional ability to off-balance his  opponents and get the takedown – usually with a variety of foot sweep variations.

Recognizing Seth Daniels as a specialist and subject matter expert on outside foot sweeps, we reached out to Seth and asked him to showcase this exceptionally useful grappling technique with our audience.

He graciously agreed and showed a few variations of the outside foot sweep in the video below.

Watch and enjoy!
