With Tuesdays now hosting our No-Gi BJJ class, takedowns are all the rage when it comes to learning new techniques. This week, our purple belt Shane showed the class a takedown using the arm and shoulder. By grabbing the arm and holding it in a “figure four” lock, one manages to disable the opponent’s balance by controlling their arm. With a shift of their weight and using the opponent’s shoulder to finalize the move, this takedown serves as a great way to control the opponent and get into a good position to start a submission. Nice job, Shane!
