Inside Trip To Double Leg Set Up
The video starts off with Katelyn talking about how perfect the inside trip is a set up to a double leg. This is because after you go for an inside trip, if you don’t get it you aren’t close to a double leg position, you are literally already there.
To defend against the inside leg trip, your opponent is going to need to step out and create a wide base to catch themself. From here you can simply just step out with your standing leg and push off the leg you used to complete the inside trip to finish the double leg.
AS soon as your opponent steps their leg out, immediately pop up to finish the takedown.
Sometimes you could have a situation where they don’t defend the inside trip by stepping out but they are able to avoid it. This usually means that they are stumbling backwards and are off balance. Don’t take that as a reason to not still try to finish the double leg. Them stumbling around is a good thing and you can still land this double leg off of a failed defense. Remember that even if they don't defend properly you will end up in the perfect double leg position either way.
