I recently had the opportunity to meet up with my friend and professional fighter Denis Kang. I wanted to pick his brain about some MMA techniques. He shared a lot of stuff, and because I had a video camera with me I can now pass that information on to you.
In this first clip Denis talks about adapting the double leg takedown to MMA. He also reveals the exact training drills that allowed him to defeat Xavier Foupa-Pokam, an extremely dangerous striker, in the UFC.
Denis also explains the difference between high and low double leg takedowns; which one is better suited to MMA, and why.
Even if don’t train MMA, I think you’ll still find this information valuable!
