How to Do Sambo Martial Arts : Doing a Scissor Take Down in Sambo Martial Arts


STEPHEN KOEPFER: On behalf of Expert Village,
my name is Stephen Koepfer of New York Combat Sambo in New York City, and today we’re going
to show you Sambo combinations. Okay, in this Sambo combination, we’re going to do a scissor
takedown into several different types of ankle locks, and these ankle lock combinations are
for the attacker in the instance that one submission doesn’t work, you can flow right
to the next and if that one doesn’t work, you can flow right to the next. So, we’re
going to start with the basic scissor takedown. The leg on the inside, our supporting leg
goes to the outside, we’re going to wrap his near leg from the inside in this motion and
we’re going to take him backwards with the scissor takedown. Once I land, I have this
setup and if I can, I control his leg. Now, I might want to try for ankle lock here but
he may not make that so easy for me so I can easily transition to a second submission toe
hold from here against my hip. If that doesn’t work, if he’s too strong, I can transition
to the heel hook from here. And that’s very important, the heel hook. A lot of people
emphasized the twist in the heel hook, very important to emphasize the pull back. You
put your wrist in his Achilles and you pull straight back.

  1. your probably weak and complain all the time……..thats his student and if that kid is not gonna feel the pain or learn where to apply pressure then how is he going to pull it off on his opponent?

  2. Thanks, I appreciate a good credible claim cause I've seen moves like these demonstrated before by Gi-wearing "black belts" and the poor individuals who NEED the ability to defend themselves who can't get a sensei are resorted to making fools of themselves just because they weren't taught properly. Self-training is difficult for most people because you have to keep HONEST with your own movement capability in ALL forms. Thanks, I spoke my peace to weed out a truthful claim to this move.

  3. What do you mean by "keeping Honest with your own movement capabilty" are you refering that some people are able to do high-risk moves and other people just physically can't no matter how hard they train or try

  4. I really don't know how that was so hard to understand as far as keeping your capability honest. Both of your "guesses" were way off though as far as what I said. It's about learning the technique, not whether you can do it or not.

  5. Well, you use the clinch for that :-).

    If he has a gi it's easier, just use the over the back grip to get to his side. In no gi, it's a bit trickier, but it's doable using a whizzer or an underhook.

  6. the person doesnt have to stand still for you to land one. if you see reilly's shiai vids, you can see him doing scissor takedowns without even using his hands. of course it takes a lot of practise, but it has a high percentage to land one if properly executed.

  7. Jesus Christ are you serious? 15 years old and you reckon you've figured it all out, but not enough to know that a heel hook hurts like hell and can tear tendons in the back of your knee.

    Holy fuck.

  8. loll, you probably were taught by a crap instructor(s) then. what kind of instructor teaches his students to act all cocky and rude?

  9. @shivzki alot of martial arts moved dont seem like they'll work in a real life situation, but i bet someone would experience can do just about all of those moves to u
