He wanted me to pretend to be worried about a takedown so that I would just lock my arms out and put my feet backward. So myself and another guy who does Judo showed him how to fake with a foot sweep and then go in (and single or double leg, which I wouldn't do b/c I don't know how, b/c I do Judo but that is his game). We also worked on breaking grips and showed him how to do a double open grip (grabbing both wrists collars and going up to break grip) and then going in for the take down. It was fun b/c me and the other guy would go two minutes in then change guys to throw a new guy in and make him work.
Forgot how much stand up grappling is!
Awesome Miz, you must be a handy guy to have at the gym with your judo experience. I could have done with a few tips from you this week actually. I've only been able to train once this week (there's heavy snow here that stopped me training on Friday) but we were sparring from standing, and I felt pretty out of my depth as we've done so little drilling/sparring for takedowns.
Do you have any tips for nifty takedowns I can try out (to surprise some of the guys with in sparring) that maybe aren't too common or orthodox, but tend to work quite well?
We've got a judo black belt in our class (blue belt in BJJ) but I don't get much of a chance to roll with him, so if you have any tips that'd be great Miz!
