DSTRYR/SG EXCLUSIVE: CATCH-AS-CATCH-CAN REAR SINGLE LEG PICK - PART 1 of 3.


There are a few things, as a grappler, that you should avoid doing at all costs.  Examples:  (1) mad dogging or otherwise irritating Rickson Gracie; (2) taunting Karl Gotch about how "pain compliance gimmicks" are stupid when you have him in the body triangle (or any other position); (3) ignoring Shinya Aoki's hammerlock.  Those are only a few that come to mind right now.

Here's another one- lying prone on your chest with your legs exposed around a catch wrestler.  These guys will shred your ligaments and/or tendons 5 ways from Sunday.  Maybe you're wondering how they'll get you down to the ground with all your junior varsity, almost-a winning-record, background.  Here's how - check out our resident catch wrestling coach, Martin Roy (of Ville Émard Catch Wrestling, Montreal, Quebec), taking us through a rear single leg variation from being underhooked followed by several nasty submission options.

This is a great sequence employing a technique BJJ'ers don't use very often (but should).  What's even better is that it's Part 1 of a series of 3 for the position.  Thanks, Roy.  We anxiously await the sequels!

  1. The problem is that no decent wrestler would fall for the initial setup. Watch the Russians on FLOWrestling and how they enter the position. The finishes are a different story.
