DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN
The next take that we are going to work on is just like the single leg, but it's going to be a double leg. You are going to shoot in a little bit different and you are going to grab both legs, and it looks a lot like a football tackle.
There are two ways to set it up. First way, similar to the last move we showed; we are playing for arm control, we are out here, or you just rotated and crunch, and you have separate it a little bit. Again, we are going to step in deep.
I like to step at an angle first and step here, and then step in, and that's personal preference, I like to step to the broad side of his hips. See how his hips are kind of turned away from me now. Whereas if I step here and then step in, then we are much more squarer together now, makes it easier for the takedown. That's just the preference I have, do what works for you.
We are here. So I step out. I have got square to him, I step in, and it's just the same step. I am using the other leg. Again, if you want to set it up the same way, you can use the same leg. But when you step in, your knee goes down in front for your toes, just between his legs, like this. You are going to step your outside leg in, and past his legs.
Now right here, there is a very important difference. Again, I am going to glue my ear to be outside of his way, but an important distinction, when my arms go around his legs, I want to pinch my elbows together, because I am trying to get his knees to buckle in together.
So here I step in and around, I want to grab and pinch his knees together. Now when I do this, I don't want to just drag him straight back, because I am going to land in between his legs, I am going to land in his guard. I want to use my head to dump him over.
So I am here. I am going to pick his legs up and use my head to push him the other way, like this, into a Side Mount.
Again, we are here. I square it up to him, I step in deep, here, pinch his knees together and use my head to a Side Mount. From the other side. We are here, we are playing for arm control, I square it up to him, this is real subtle movement, he doesn't really see this. But here I just kind of square all through him. I step in. See how my ear is right here, I use my head to push. I pinch his knees together and push, and do a Side Control.
So as you can see his legs are pinched together, and we are here. I want you to watch how his knees pinch when I am going to fly from over. I pinch his knees in. I use my head to push this way. I use my arms to pull. So we are here, I stepped in, I pinch together, have his knees go together, I am going to lift his legs out and push with my head, and do a Side Mount.
The other way that you will see this set up is that wrestler's clinch. With the wrestler's clinch, I really like to give myself a lot of room. I like to rip this arm out of the way. This is going to be blocking me. So when this arm is here, I can't just move in. When I am shooting on this leg, just with a single leg, it's kind of different angle, it's not really my leg nearly as much.
Since I have to step a lot deeper for the double leg, I really, really get blocked here. So I have got to really pull this up and out of the way. When I pull this up and out of the way, the point of my forehead aims just behind his back leg. So I am here, I go down, pinch, pushing over into the double leg.
The other side. I am here. We are playing for arm control. I still give him that bump with my right arm, but I have really got to exaggerate, clearing this out of the way. So bump and clear that out.
When I am here, stepping in deep, right over to a Side Mount. Full speed, looks like this.
The other side. Notice that I am keeping really close to him the whole time. Once I make contact, I want to keep my shoulder and my head on his body, until I have the Side Mount secured.
