ESP RAW 129: Pop-Up Takedowns + Standing Leg Locks
This is volume 7 in the Combination Man Curriculum (CMC) and the complete title of this volume is "POP-UP TAKEDOWNS FROM SQUARE: Head to Ankle Set-Ups + Standing Leg Locks.
We will start all the material here from the Square Position (revised Collar & Elbow--to make it applicable for both straight-grapplers and MMA).
Here's the complete skinny...

  • How to set up the Square Position and why standard Collar & Elbow exposes you to vulnerabilities.
  • We define Pop-Up Takedowns as shooting that allows you to get under your opponent and then hit your feet just as they hit the mat--more often than not with a nice breakable leg in your evil little hands.
  • We demonstrate "how to be tall when you drop." Failure to be tall means you won't be getting back up and welcome to playing that extended guard game, crew.
  • We cover how to Push/Pull to get up ("the easy chair" concept and "exposing the wedge"). If your legs are doing more than 20% of the work in the stand-up chances are you are looking at an inefficient takedown.
  • Next we'll get into 6 Pop-Up Takedowns from the Head-Control Position and discuss why all Knee & Ankle Picks are Near Picks (or least should be) and the order of operation to make that formula work for you.
  • Also, we hit the vital importance of not leaving your head behind on any pick--do so and you will be countered.
  • We then move our control points down the body as we fire 9 Hip Control Pop-Ups from the Square Position and get that La-Z- Boy work going.
  • We'll then hit 3 Knee Control Pop-Ups to round-off our head-to-toe journey.
  • After we've been dropping bodies we discuss what to do with that snappable leg in our hands.
  • We hit the 3 Points of Walking a Leg Up and the vital importance of Dog-Leashing the Leg, not forcing the leg to where we want it to go.
  • After we've walked the leg up we will apply 2 evil finishes that can be inserted at the end of every single Pop-Up Takedown above.

With this volume we take one position (The Square) and run an 18-Takedown Drill Set that then can be over-layed with the 2 go-to Standing Leg Hooks to double and triple your drilling rounds.
This volume, as with all of our RAW material, comes with a printed syllabus for inclusion in your training notebook.
(Hang on to these syllabi because at some point in the Combination Man Curriculum run we will supplement and key these syllabi to a Master Text for easy Drill & Technique search).
