Got grab arts?

If you happen to have video of your favorite grab arts please post them here.
This is our "back grab 12"
Being a larger guy, I find that most martial arts techniques do not play to my natural advantages as they are designed, more often that not, to deal with larger/stronger opponents. This specific technique, on the other hand, seems to be made for a person of my size and temperment.
(I also get a kick out of the WWF feeling I always get when doing this technique)
I cut the video down to 6 MB so it would not be too painfull to down load

This is our back grab #8 and I agree that it's well suited to a larger person.

When I first started training and knew very few techniques, I was Carla's uke for this one. Carla's big (see her photo in the Kajekenbo's Women Black Belt's thread: http://www.kajukenbocafe.com/smf/index.php?topic=862.45), I'm smaller and, wow, what a surprise when she scooped me way up, then dropped me to the mat!

It was one of the few days where my instructor expressed some concern as I left the dojo: "are you ok?" He was probably wondering if I'd ever show up again  :)

That almost looks like a variation of my school's garb art #6.except mine is should grab from behind (kinda like yanking the guy around for a punch). the scooping part is the variation that my teach showed me could be used. its good for strong tall guys. but if the guy is way havier than u could carry itd be a little hard to do. it strains the back muscles. haha, there's a guy in my clas named Ed. he's a 46 year old native american oak tree. haha, i'm think he was half samoan too. this guy for instance is a good reason not to use this grab art and use another 1
