Alot of People were Impressed by the omoplata video below but werent sure how to do it themselves, now its hard for me to break down the mechanics of that move via blog, but I'll try to break it down the best I can via other tutorial videos, since theres not much info about the acrobatic version seen below.

Heres the basic form for the omoplota, its basically a shoulder lock like the Kimura but using your legs as the fulcrum instead of your arms.

Heres 1 Variation of the Flying omoplata from the outside, its much more simple than the rolling version, probably more effective too... The acrobatics in the version below probably make this move harder to pull off in a real situation, its hard to say if you would have time to roll like that, or if the opponent wouldn't be able to jerk away when he noticed you were up to something.

Me being an inside fighter, this is my favorite version, it looks real clean and hard to escape ,the outside version looked kinda flimsy to me, like someone could pull away from it easily if they knew it was coming, where this version seems to use alot more leverage.
