Reigning UFC Champion & Olympic Gold Medal Wrestler Henry Cejudo Wants To Show You His Complete System To Takedown Bigger & Stronger Opponents Easily - Every Time


Today we will explore how to take down a bigger opponent from the legendary fly weight. In this video you will see that Cejudo emphasizes the importance of never getting trapped underneath a bigger guy when grappling. Of course, a great take down can help you avoid this altogether. Watch the video below and then we will break down Cejudo’s take down techniques. Check it out now!

Using agility and fineness to set up an opponent can be a very effective way of getting a take down. For example, in a collar tie, the slide by wrestling technique can be an effective way to taking an opponent’s back by using their own strength and pressure against them.

Or you could avoid the tie up altogether and go for the super duck. In this case, it’s all about the fake, and finding shortcuts to take the back in order to get the takedown. This is a slick technique to make your opponent think you’re headed in one direction but end up going to the opposite side.

Getting to your opponents back opens up a lot of doors, especially if you are a smaller guy. Wrestling techniques, like the ones demonstrated by Henry Cejudo can be a highly effective way to use your opponent’s size against them.

Henry Cejudo has made a career out of winning against all the odds. In 2008, at the age of 20, he entered the Olympics as a huge underdog and was trailing before big comeback wins in every match into the finals. There, he became the youngest American ever to win an Olympic gold medal, the most prestigious accomplishment in the sport

If there’s one word that is the secret to Henry’s unmatched success, it’s perfectionism. He is a technician who made it a mission to find and master the details in every position, because (as he puts it) “the devil is in the details”. He teaches the same way he learns, laying out every detail with surgical precision and explaining his reason for each movement and action. You can almost see the wheels turning as Henry coaches you through how you can go from wrestling white belt to a takedown machine. It’s his hope that this can help turn you into the best technician and takedown artist you can be!
