also another thing to note on Aldatov is his cross ankles, they look simple but they are very hard to do, i dont get how he gets by ppl jtrying to sit back on his head, but if u drill it enough it does show.
It is a type is misdirection shot. Aldatov leads with his right leg if you notice but when he attacks his left leg comes forward. It is very different than what we Americans typically do.
His set up is a simple shoulder tap with his left hand. As he taps the shoulder he is already changing his level and into the attack. This is very important. If you notice as he taps with his left hand he takes a little step to the right with his right foot. This little step allows him to take the weight off his left foot for a split second so he can then penetrate in with his left with a big outside step. It also makes the opponent think he is going for the right leg, hence the misdirection. The opponent will flinch to the left and it opens up his entire right side (Aldatov's left). (note: watch the match with Ganev. Aldatov picks him apart with the misdirection). He may also fake with his head to the right, but I'm not entirely sure. He then uses a windmill motion with his arms and shoulder rotation to clear his body to attack the legs. Also notice that his back is straight and his head is up. This brings his hips in tight, so when people do sprawl on him, he has already beaten their hips.
Depending upon his opponent's reaction (or lack thereof) he will have a double or finish to a single when they square their hips.
He will also do this when his opponent grabs his left wrist either straight on or over the top.

Well done, I never noticed him shooting off the wrist grab but you have broken down the move nicely
Basically it is a super duck, with a nice wrist set-up, and a variety of finishes. Added to those technical skils is his uncanny natural timing.... the type of thing you can't really teach.
I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.
While you can't teach it I believe you can develop it through proper drills and attempts during live wrestling.
