Single to MMA Ground Strategies (diary entry)

single leg 2half guard attack15.06.2022

My junior MMA client linked the single-leg takedown with his new ground strategy. After going back through the basics on the single leg from clinch we went to the guard and looked at using the half-guard get-up. When a fighter chooses to stand whilst holding their opponent in half-guard they are effectively carrying over the single-leg takedown positioning. The lesson finished with 4 x 2 minute specific MMA sparring.

My senior submission grappling lesson continued looking at attacks from basic rubber guard positions. We covered arm-bars and shoulder locks from the chill dog position and even attempted the sorcerer. The class finished with 3 x 5 minute rounds of sparring.
