In the video demonstration above, Henry Cejudo demonstrates the Jiu Jitsu techniques known as penetration and level change. It is important to remember before taking your penetration step to get alert, relaxed and composed. Pay attention to how Henry Cejudo is loose and moving around. When he feels ready, he looks to shoot in with his penetration step. The penetration step is like a lunging forward step, where you are looking to get your knee down to the mat with your forward foot, and your back foot and leg are generating all the power to shoot in. A common mistake many grapplers make is to slide their back foot forward rather than lifting their foot up to get into the lunge position.
Once you find your opening you want to shoot in and step up. Remember to keep your back up nice and strong and head up in order to have good posture before completing the take down. Take note of the warm up exercises Cejudo shows for practicing the penetration step. This is a great drill to do at the beginning of the class to really work on getting that step strong and well balanced. These types of simple tips and tricks from world class grapplers such as Cejudo can really help to quickly improve your skill level. So remember these details from Henry Cejudo the next time you are looking to get a strong take down on a difficult opponent.
