Renzo Gracie returned to action last month against Yuki Kondo in OneFC and in it he worked a takedown technique that he had demonstrated to Brandon Vera months beforehand.
Here he was waiting for his luggage to come off the plane and he decided to give World Champion Brandon Vera some advice on back control to takedown. Both are high level bjj black belts & MMA champions and the mutual respect is very high:
Baggage taking a little longer to come at the airport? Great opportunity to learn some back control with the always awesome @renzograciebjj. Go train.

The technique is also taught by Ben Askren who calls it the Broomstick Mat Return, with the regular broomstick being a variation of the leg scissors takedown in BJJ. In this video Renzo teaches it to his students at his New York Academy. This takedown is unstoppable when performed correctly.
