This week in fundamentals class, I’ll give you some strategies for when you are in a kneeling face-off (eg. start of rolling). The concepts in them are really usable everywhere, and of course, translate well to standing takedowns.
If you have doubts about your ability to do standing takedowns, this is a great place to get comfortable first, including playing against one another. If you are already comfortable standing, I’ll show you other grappling situations in which these “kneeling takedowns” apply, like guard passing, and attacking turtle.
If you’d like to get a head start studying the material, watch this video.
