I have no experience in regular wrestling - only judo and jiu-jitsu. I would like to improve my wrestling type takedowns ie: singles, doubles, ankle pics, transitions, etc. I need a recommendation for a good video that shows the basics, setups, and combos.
Is Darrell Gholar's video any good?
both Darrell Gholar's Ultimate Wrestlin for MMA (9-7-5) video, available at www.onthemat.com, and his "Vale Tudo Takedowns" video, available at www.ultimateimports.com, have gotten rave reviews. The are made precisely for people with little to know wrestling background, but who want a concise, yet detailed, discussion of the most high percentage of takedowns in MMA and in a pure grappling environment, as well as the defenses to them. If you want to know a bit about the tapes and what is one them, click on the thread entitled "9-7-5's".
