YOU: "I WANT THE SUPLEX!" // DSTRYR/SG: "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE SUPLEX!!" [BECAUSE YOU CAN'T]


Having watched a fair amount of professional wrestling as a child, I consider myself an expert in the takedown known as the suplex (aka souple`).  I've broken many a 7th grade spine that way back in my days at St. Marianne Catholic Elementary.  But, that's just how we do it in the rough gangland known as Pico Rivera, CA.

Actually, I don't know a damned thing about the suplex, despite my many years of high school wrestling.  I even went to takedown camp, but retained about zero percent of that.  The truth is, and I'm speaking from my experience and my general knowledge of others' experiences, most BJJ training doesn't include these kinds of throws. But, the suplex is effective and clearly nailing one in competition will score bigtime with las muchachas (that means ladies, grappler).

Once again, the guys at Phuket Top Team come through huge for us with another unique demo - this time, the suplex.  Check out PTT's head wrestling coach, Andrew Leone (who's work we've featured before), showing us the finer points of this dangerous takedown.

  2. Two things...

    1.)He asks what his name is and then introduces him as his 'student and friend'. Hmmmmm I know the names of my friends.

    2.) At 1.25 he appears to be air bumming him.

    This is a very strange chap.

  3. Ouch! That's gotta hurt. Good takedown. Loads of other options once you have the back as well...

  4. 1) He may or may not have a memory problem due to some prescribed herbal stuff
    2) Air Bumming is necessary to achieve a nice Suplex :)
    3) Andre Leone is indeed a strange chap

  5. He seems to be a full fledged queer by the way he talks and indeed it is a nice suplex

  6. That video gives me no comfort that the suplex can be learned by watching videos.
