OK Crew, we've been building that base via separating skills and now it's time to start tying them all together into one vicious package. On this volume we will take one take-down that is a bit under-utilized in MMA and open up its horizons :
- We open with the mechanics of the High-Crotch Single and why it might need to be a bigger part of your game than the ubiquitous double-leg.
- We show an easy drop that utilizes foot-sticking rather than any lift that will run you into guillotine trouble.
- Of course take-downs are no good if you can't set them up, so remember all that Dominant Angle work we've done? Well we hit 4 Tactics to get right in that back-pocket where you need to be--
- We'll start with a base Slap & Catch Entry, then apply ways to un-weave the clinch to get to where you need to be and then...
- All that boxing work we did on RAW 156 will payoff as we slam right into the drop out of a Bob Fitzsimmons special.
- Once we get the drop we need to have a plan in place-well how about 15 plans?
- We'll open with 2 secondary moves post-take-down that nullifies the potential guard threat [Step-Aways, Crooks Hooks, & Thigh Crams.]
- We then glide into a Near-Side Knee-Ride Series that should appeal to both ground and pound finishers and submission artists.
- Submission players will like even more theFar-Side Knee-Ride and 3 sneaky collapsed hooks that come out of this. [I'd be a liar if I didn't say that the Reverse Lever was one of them.]
- Next we'll hit a Knee-Ride Slice for those who don't trust high-riding.
- And as the icing on the cake-the last drill sets us up for RAW 158 where we turn this into Leg Lock Lollapalooza.
Man, I love this volume! We're finally getting out of the basics weeds into the mean, mean, meanness of the old school combination masters-what's not to love?
This volume (as with all volumes of RAW) comes with a printed syllabus for inclusion in your training notebook.
