5 Best Chain Takedown Sequences [High Percentage Success Rate]

 

Here are 5 of my personal favorite CHAIN Takedowns! Takedowns can be like a chess game where you can plan two to three steps ahead. When you attempt a takedown, your opponent will defend, when he does, he may be opening himself up for another takedown. So you want to attack in combinations (AKA chain-takedowns) with different angles and weapons!

5 Easy Takedowns For BJJ White Belts

 

Many people who start practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu find themselves in academies where the sparring begins on the knees, versus standing up. This is because our art takes place primarily on the ground and it is also serves to prevent excessive injuries.

 

Because of this situation there exists somewhat of a stigma surrounding the art of the takedown for beginners in BJJ. Many who compete for the first timeĀ feel inclined to immediately “pull guard” and work for a sweep or a submission. Sometimes that stigma can be so intenseĀ that beginners who excel on the top, will pull guard out of fear, or lack of experience performing a proper takedown.

 

Here is a list of 5 safe and easy takedowns that you can begin to master right away. This list is intended for Jiu Jitsu in the gi. However, there is some technique spillover into no-gi for the “no-gi-centric” BJJ player. Enjoy!

2. The Single Leg Takedown
