Explanation of that video...
After instructing the cast in certain basic moves of submission grappling and doing grid exercises, I wanted them to get used to the concept of using these moves in some sort of scene. I set them up into pairs and had them come up with short scenes in which they would use the moves to express the intention of what they said. They came up with some pretty entertaining stuff. I especially liked the "jelly donut" scene.
