Effective 2 On 1 Attacks With Henry Cejudo
The two on one, also known as the Russian Tie, is a strong position that offers the person who has it a ton of opportunities. However a lot of people do look it over because so many people know how to defend against it well.
While this does make it harder to work from the position, you shouldn’t let that dissuade you. If you don’t train this position then you will lose out on all of the cool benefits that it can offer. The thing is that if you want to be very effective from this position, you’re going to need to have at least a few options that you can do from it.
That’s why it’s good to have someone with a ton of wrestling experience to show you what you can do from the position. We’ll don’;t worry because we have one of the best wrestlers and combat sports athletes in general to show you some takedowns from the position.
In this video, Triple C Henry Cejudo goes over how he likes to score the inside trip from the two on one.
Who Is Henry Cejudo?
Henry Cejudo is, in his own words, the greatest combat sports athlete of all time and it’s pretty hard to argue against him on that point. Not only did Henry Cejudo manage to hold both the UFC Flyweight and Bantamweight title at the same time and defend both belts, he also became an Olympic gold medalist in Freestyle wrestling at the 2008 Olympics. This makes him the only UFC athlete to ever win a title, let alone two, and hold a gold medal. With that said we are going to see how Henry applied his gold medal wrestling skills to MMA.
Two On One To Inside Trip
The video starts off with Henry Cejudo grabbing his two on one off of his opponent getting a single collar tie. Remember that you want to stick to your opponent like glue because your opponent is going to try to pull away as quickly as they can once they lose the collar tie.
From that tight grip, you can go for the inside trip on your opponent’s lead leg because of how close it is. Cejudo recommends that you immediately go for the inside trip after getting the two on one because your opponent is already trying to pull away from you. This way you can take advantage of your opponent’s own momentum for the takedown.
You can also pull your opponent down when you are first getting the two on one. This will force your opponent to stand back up tall and as they are doing that you can go for the inside trip as they will be extending their legs and also not thinking about getting taken down. Doing this in combination with the previous method will also mess with your opponent’s timing and keep them on edge for the whole match.
