Just because you didn’t wrestle in High School or do 10 years of Judo doesn’t mean that you always need to pull guard!
In this 5 minute Youtube video Denis Kang and I riff about the the simplest, easiest takedowns for No Gi.
Denis is a BJJ black belt and has fought in Japanese Pride, the UFC, and ADCC, so his credentials are impeccable.
And me? I just like to find the easiest ways to do things 😉
In the video below Denis shares the kneetap takedown which was often used by Georges St Pierre in MMA, and I share the snap down from the collar tie. Both moves have technical elements, but are much easier to do than those crazy athletic takedowns you often see in the highlight reels.
Check the two techniques out in the video below!
