Proven BJJ Competition Strategy against a Strong Wrestler
How do you deal with the Takedown aspect of a Wrestler who’s in a Grappling competition? Or what do you do when someone’s better at take downs?
As a Wrestler who got into Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. I can tell you that I used to put a lot of focus on takedowns.
When I would go to a BJJ competition. I would do everything I could in order to get on top of the person.
Oftentimes if someone pulled me into Guard it kind of sucked the wind out of my sails. I wouldn’t have the points for getting the takedown and it took away my forward momentum.
In this video I respond to a question from Cassie who has a son, Ryan, who is competing in local superfight matches.
His matches have been going well but she’s now noticing that the area gyms are offering more wrestling in their BJJ training. And their gym does not offer it.
The question from them is how do you approach a situation in a competition when your opponent has superior takedowns.
Chad and I both show options as to how we deal with this situation in BJJ tournaments or competitions.
The main idea is to converse your energy on the feet and save it for once you get to the ground. In my case I use a Guard Pull into Half Guard for the sweep.
But I’ll save the details and let you see them in the video. 🙂
Hope the video is useful!
