What Exactly Am I Going to Learn?
Vlad is going to start off with a few slick takedowns to submission transitions. Then he’s going to walk you through a boatload of tried-and-tested leg lock finishes and variations. After that, you’ll learn some go-to reversals and escapes. It’s comprehensive but just short enough that you will be excited to go through it.
Takedowns & Submission Transitions: If you are into playing on your feet, you’ll be in heaven with these takedowns. And if you’re not a takedown guy, don’t sweat it; Vlad isn’t some 20-year old dude doing cartwheels. You can use these takedowns safely even if you are a 40-year old who needs to go to work tomorrow. And quite frankly, these takedowns and set-ups are actually going to be JUST AS USEFUL even if you don’t play takedowns at all. The grip work and angles really help your ground game because his principles are universal.
For instance, Vlad doesn’t just say, “Grab the collar and yank this guy over this way.” He shows you how to use your hips and create angles in order to move your opponent without over-exerting yourself.
If you don’t understand the principles, you will be wasting a lot of energy.
When you grab the collar with your hand, you are essentially using your hand and wrist. These are smaller muscles (obviously). You can use these for control but they should not be the key to moving your opponent’s body.
The power is in your lower body.
People get hurt or gassed-out when they spend all their time using their grip and upper body to maneuver guys around. Short-term it’s possible, but your joints will eventually hate you. Your lower back will be toast too. Screw that. Vlad’s going to walk you through all of this so you’ll be able to control your opponents without breaking a sweat…or your back.
Leg Attacks: Re leg attacks, Vlad knows better than anyone what works and what doesn’t.
He’s not some overnight young buck who just learned leg locks last month, he’s been at it for over 30 years. Sambo places a huge emphasis on leg attacks. Basically….
Vlad has been “hacking” leg attacks for decades. He’s like the Yoda of leg attacks.
Thankfully for you, he came along at the perfect time because today leg locks are all the rage.
For a lot of people, sadly, leg locks are their kryptonite.
