A newer standout competitor to the Black Belt division, Nick Schrock, shows his go to takedown in a time sensitive situation. After grabbing his collar and sleeve grips, Nick stays with good posture and keeps a stiff arm with his collar grip. He steps outside and turns his opponent, feinting the outside trip, but mainly is concerned about breaking his posture. When his opponent postures up, Nick steps across to the outside of the far leg, and turns in, dropping to his knees for the seoi nage. A key detail is that he raises his elbow high to help trap the arm for the throw.

From standing, Kade grabs the cross collar and sleeve grips on Tye. For a traditional seoi nage, he would turn from the inside, however, in this variation he turns from the outside to avoid exposing his back. As he turns and steps in, he raises Tye's arm and places it on his shoulder. He drops to his knees and pulls down on the collar and sleeve. Because Tye's arm is across his body, he will have a very difficult time trying to take Kade's back. Now Kade leans forward and pulls Tye over his body to finish the takedown.

If this doesn't break the grip, Travis circles his hand to the outside and brings it back up on the inside to break the grip. The third way, again if the yanking doesn't work, Travis makes a C grip on top of the wrist, and pushes both arms down and away as he pulls his body back.
