hey all, ive been seeing this particular counter to a single leg takedown but i can't get it to work, and when i have my training partners try it i can usually still get the takedown - so i figured id ask the grappling forum. here's the situation: ive got the guy's right leg and im trying to single leg, forehead on his chest, "hiking" his leg through my own, pinching it there, and keeping a good posture. from here, i see guys trying to free their leg from between mine, then putting the top of their foot/lower shin on the outside of my leg (my left leg in this instance). thats it...thats the counter...some people seem to be able to use that leg really well to maintain balance (tito vs hughes in adcc if anyone's seen it) then pull their leg out. however, when someone uses it on me, i will usually just step in with my right leg and switch to a double leg, or inside sweep their other leg for the takedown. any advice from wrestlers out there? how do i make this one work? ive been countering the single leg with a whizzer/uchi mata type thing, or just pushing their head down and pulling my leg out and i wanted to add some other stuff to the old arsenal. any discussion is appreciated. thanks.
