If you’re looking for a real slick take down, check out this video from former Canadian Wrestling Champion, Chris Prickett.
In this tutorial Chris demonstrates one option from the underhook in the event the opponent starts to back away.
Moving on from this position you can simply climb up the body to mount if they turn to face you. Among other options, you can also take the back for Hadaka Jime (rear-naked choke).
Another reason I love this video is because it’s a great application for the Koryu Uchinadi ground kicking drill, Ne-Keri Waza.
Chris Prickett’s simple and elegant execution of this unique technique is what makes his demonstration The Martial Arts Muse’s Video of the Month!
