Omoplata to Foot Lock with Dan Strauss 'The Raspberry Ape'

I have to admit, this is the first time i've heard of 'The Raspberry Ape' aka Dan Strauss. I guess it's kind of a cool nickname. I wonder why he went with raspberry? I know that 'grape' has already been used, but what about 'cherry ape' or better yet, 'pomegranate ape'? Anyway, check out these options from the omoplata position. Props to  for the video.

I have hit this twice recently.  Nobody sees it coming.
