Judo Champion Jimmy Pedro and Travis Stevens give you an insight into their world of taking people down. With these 3 DVD set you can improve your take-down game from 2 of the best in that area!
These two greats will be your guides as you learn to master the skills necessary to beat even the toughest opponent. All the techniques and tips you’ll ever need are found in The Takedown Blueprint.
If you want to beat the guys at your belt level you need to be better than them in some areas. You could try to get better at sweeping or passing than they are at sweeping & passing, but that’s going to be difficult because they are working on those skills 3 to 5 times a week in class. Luckily, they are ignoring their standup games – some simple drilling of the right moves will give you a huge advantage.
To prove how important this is, think to yourself – the last time you saw a jiu jitsu tournament you probably noticed the guy who got the takedown won the match. Statistics show that whoever wins the takedown points usually comes out on top.
On the first two DVDs, Jimmy and Travis show their best takedowns to use in BJJ Matches – meaning these will be safe throws and won’t expose you to back takes.
-Osoto Gari – Outer Reaping Throw – A devastating throw to use against an opponent leaning backwards
-Knee Osoto Gari – A slick modification to throw opposite sided players with osoto
-Drop Seoi Nage – An Explosive, yet surprisingly low risk takedown
-Ippon Seoi Nage – An even safer way to land the one armed shoulder throw
