IronMan said:Sprawls, no question.
It's also a good conditioning drill, as well as being combat effective.
but then you would probably end up on your back anyway.:thumbsdown:yellow man said:is it against the rules to knee someone shoting for ur legs in ufc? what i would think to do in a street fight if they shoot for my legs just wondering why ufc fighters dont.
it IS totally legal to knee ppl in face when they shoot for the legs. just look at the Kimo/Ken Shamrock fight where Ken ended it in the 1st 20 seconds right as Kimo went for the takedown.IronMan said:No, it's not illegal in any good MMA organization. Guys like Joachim Hansen base their entire fights on kneeing shottfighters in the head. Takanori Gomi did it to Ralph Gracie.
I'm almost positive it's legal in the UFC, but the real issue with it is that if you miss or don't connect well then your gonna end up on your back about twice as hard as you would have otherwise.
if u change ur center of gravity its harder to get taken down...doublelegtakedown said:but then you would probably end up on your back anyway.:thumbsdown:
For sure. A lot of guys just use it as a cardio conditioning drill.Steve-d said:not to mention you DONT need a partner to practice your sprawls, just sprawl hit the floor and get back up as fast as you can, then sprawl again.
It really is a great workout, if you have a partner available thats great, if not, you can go on without them.
