Cory Olson asked: I was just wondering what the “Gilligan Twist” is exactly?
ANSWER: I asked an old-school friend of mine and here is what he said “As I recall, the Gilligan Twist was a combination of a leg scissors applied from behind, while sitting down, with the arms working on the opponent’s upper torso in much the manner of an abdominal stretch, or at least to that effect. The “twisting” motion prompted the opponent to surrender.”
