It’s no secret that inverting any submission in BJJ will score you muchos puntos of coolness. We’re not just talking about a few points or even double the points – we’re talking exponential baddassery. There’s just something about inversion that tells everyone “I know what I’m doing and I do it so well, I can do it upside-down and still tap you dumbass.” I’m paraphrasing.
Although I’m joking (slightly), pulling off inverted submissions of various kinds is, to some degree, a mark of considerable mastery of a submission. The body position is typically more challenging and the mechanics of the submission must be built in to your muscle memory (even more than achieving the sub from the traditional position) in order for it to work.
