Mixed Martial Arts & Cage Fighting Basics : How to Takedown in Mixed Martial Arts
ED WEDDING: So I’m going to show my entry
once again off of my punches. This is my one, two as I showed before. I’m going to one,
two, I’m going to lower my level, change my level, notice I’m down like I’m squatting,
okay? Now I’m going to take a penetration step with my lead leg, right here, between
his legs. I’m going to pop him in the solar plexus or the belly button with my shoulder,
if I can, that way I know I’m deep enough. If I’m this like this where my back’s bent
over, this is not good, he can sprawl on me and I’m in big trouble. But if I’m here right
under him, this is good, okay? So, my lead leg, I lowered my level, my lead leg is in-between
his legs. I bring my trail leg up, okay, I’m going to step out with my lead leg, okay?
And I’m using my head on the other side, under his left armpit, I’m going to push him and
take him down, and then I end up with in what’s called side control. Okay, so after I took
him down here, I’m going to take my left arm out, and now I’m in what’s a position called
cross-body or side control. Now from here I can actually go for a submission on his
arm or on his neck, or I put a knee in the belly they call right here and I do striking
his face, this is where the ground-and-pound comes in.
