A great way to set up a shot is a fake before it. However, your opponent can easily become keen on that because faking is a rather common thing to do before you shoot. A hesitation double takes advantage of your opponent thinking that they’re one step ahead. They’re going to think that they know what is going on and let their guard down. At that moment is when you strike.
For this form of a double, you just have to know when they think they’re ahead and when you strike.
When most people fake, they pretend to go for a shot by lowering themselves and stepping in as if they were going for a shot. After that, they step backwards and raise up into their normal stance. If you fake, your opponent is going to most likely expect this out of you.
This is how you take advantage of them. After you fake, they think you are going to go back into your stance, but as Jackson shows, you just stay in that lowered position. For a split second, their guard is going to be dropped because they think that you are going to back up. That is when you strike.
From that position that your fake put you in, you just go for your standard double leg. It won’t be as easy to defend because you are low and can get there faster. Also, there is a split second that they are going to think that nothing is going to happen, so they will be slow to defend.
All of these good benefits come from just simply hesitating in that position of a fake. Who knew that some things could be this simple? Nate Jackson, that’s who. He knows so much more, and he has so much knowledge available for you through his instructional, The Cramm Takedown System.
