Mandatory Mechanics of Movement with Henry Cejudo

By tuning in to the rhythm you can operate much more offensively because you will always be in a position to strike. If you re-watch the video and just pay attention to Cejudo’s feet you will notice that he is NEVER out of position.
If you are always in a good position to launch your offense you will win more. Anticipation can also make it easier to land your takedowns. If you are comfortable with your position and can anticipate how your opponent will react landing your offense can almost be an afterthought.
Speaking of The Low Single…
Cejudo describes a couple of key aspects to being successful at the low single. One is that you have to have god given speed and decisiveness. Otherwise you need to drill, drill, drill, and you need to believe in your technique.
There is probably a very good chance that Henry has both of those things down pat. Watching the way he level changes and dives in on the ankle is a thing of beauty. He describes it best when he says ‘like a cobra’, because he explodes after the level change. Notice the angle Henry keeps pointing out with his hand. It’s pictured below.
This angle ensures that you will be deep enough to snag the back of the ankle for the eventual takedown. If you combine some of the movement aspects from the first video you may be able to find the low single for yourself. Cejudo calls it the fastest shot on earth, so mix it with some good movement and take your opponent down!
