Re: sprawl demo/video

You turn to the side when it helps create more distance between the leg being attacked and the opponent. Also, often after you sprawl you will drive one of your hips into the opponent in order force him to extend his body in order maintain a hold of you leg. Once he is extended it is easier to break his grip. See here (wfs). So it's best if you can get your hips into an advantageous position as you sprawl.

There's some good sprawls and take down defense in this match (wfs) between two multiple gold medal winners. John Smith is probably the best ever at scoring after his opponent has sprawled, and his single leg defense is uncanny as well.
