One of the Best Takedown Videos… Ever

by Tom Reynolds on December 22, 2010

Alot of people emailed me about the last post which was a very technical BJJ match so I decided to follow up with this one geared more towards takedowns. This is a great video to watch and rewatch if you want to see takedowns done properly.

Some things to note:

1. The music choices make absolutely no sense.

2. Hip placement is key.

Whoever has their hips under their opponent’s in a takedown usually wins.  How do you get good hip placement?

-Fight hard for underhooks. Underhooks allow you to move their hips and your own where you want them for the throw.

Change levels. When going after a shot or within the clinch, change your level  to get better positioning for the takedown.
