Lowkey a really good series.
Agreed with above. Your videos are awesome
Are snapdowns popular in gi practice?
they are at my place, that's for sure
Good detail to point out to people.
That stagger step is also absolutely critical to ankle picking or cross-ankle picking anyone decent off collar ties (or lapels) too. Once i figured that out it had similar experience with those.
Yeah usually done with a lapel grip though since you can get more oomph with it.
Couple of my students competed this weekend and were working on gripping up and snapping down with what we call "folding the laundry" like you're shaking out a towel you just took from the washing machine. Powerful move!
Can also snag loop chokes if you can get them to fall forward enough
loop chokes are awesome
As a BJJ guy who knows jack shit about wrestling I thought of you when I saw this clip.
Henry Cejudo shows a very classical shot here. But at 4:00, he shows the idea of covering distance by stepping forward with your back leg first. While this is certainly an idea I've used a lot in judo, I've shockingly never taken a shot this way. Hope you like it!
