twister side control
Twister Side-Control is the position in which a submission known as the Twister can be applied more easily. It involves a practitioner leaning to face his opponent's legs, and placing the hand furthest from the legs head[clarification needed] behind the opponent's back, then leaning the opponent towards him. This can be done to catch an opponent who is shrimping away. This position does not have complete control and weight as with Kesa-gatame and Kata-gatame, but affords a greater opportunity to apply the Twister. Other moves can also be applied from this position, such as The Baby Arm and several more.
