Detailed Setup and Takedown for BJJ (Even with Guillotine Chokes)
The right control and setup can make all the difference with Takedowns. In this video I show a takedown I’ve used since High School Wrestling and still use as a Black Belt in BJJ.
This particular take down is going to me more focused on No Gi. And the grip and positioning will reflect that.
In Wrestling a basic name you could use for this would be a High Crotch to Double Leg.
I included a video from one of our no gi sessions of me using the setup. Not the exact same takedown, but the setup is the same. Just to give people an idea.
What I like a lot about this takedown is that it often times makes the person want to attack with a Guillotine choke. The only issue with that is that if done right, I should already be cutting my angle.
I’ve used this setup and finish against people in Brazilian Jiujitsu competitions or just rolling. Some of these people are those with nasty Guillotine chokes.
But again, creating the angle will keep me out of trouble.
So give the takedown a try, see if it works with your BJJ takedown game. If it does, awesome!
