Does anyone know how to land in half guard or side control after a takedown? Or any hints how I can perform a single leg takedown? I know it's in the controls, but I can't seem to pull one off at all.
To end up in half guard you need to get perfect timing on a takedown. The only way I have been able to pull off a single leg is by catching a kick. Just flick the right stick down as he is kicking, you will grab it and take him down. Again depending on your timing you will land in a more favorable position.
