Starting on knee's position when grappling techniques
 
Anyone have any good tips on starting from the knees position when you grapple? We always start this way during class and I never know how to initiate a takedown from here and end up on my back or somehow getting my back taken.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Alot of guys start on the knees, and once you shake hands they stand up and take your back - cheating imo. Some things that work from the knees are arms drags and snap downs.

Stay balanced, head up, elbows in, don't reach. Learn clinch work and to be mobile in that position (knee walk).

My personal strategy is to mess with their center of gravity. I do this by pulling/pushing on their head and or shoulders, arm/wrist control, etc. Depending on what happens I usually end up bear hugging and going into their guard, sticking their head in the mat and taking their back, securing a guillotine, or an arm drag. Once in awhile I get a decent shot.

Hope this helps.

9/10 times i pull guard just to get work off my back. Or i shoot in for a takedown and end up in half if it dosent work. For no-gi starting on knes is really hard to do.

Thanks guys i appreciate the advice. Yea it is hard and i really don't like doing it because i don't feel like its a realistic scenario in a real mma fight, but thats the way we do it most of the time.


Starting from the standing position is just as hard for me though, its a helluva lot harder to take someone down when they know thats exactly what your going to do....Any tips with this would be appreciate as well...
