Grappling and Takedown:Use Opponents Strength Against Them(Beginner)

When grappling with an opponent,there is a way to take them down using their own strength against them.Using this method takes timing and patience.Here are the steps to do so.

1.When you feel ready go into ur opponent with a grappel or wait until he grappels you.

2.Chances are that your opponent will be pushing against u to take you down, do not let this takedown happen but also do not use your strength against him,hold onto ur opponent but back up slowly little by little and wait until the time is right.

3.When you feel the time is right for the takedown, pull your opponent down while backing away quick which will make him fall.

Why does your opponent fall?
-When ur opponent is pushing against you, most of the time he is unbalanced. His weight with that sudden loss of balance will make him fall.

Keep practicing this move, if you are grappling you can try this move over and over,chances are great that this move will be successful.

You've just the described the basic rule of Judo: When you are pushed, pull. When you are pulled, push.

This rule makes Judo unique and not just some of form wrestling with gi.
