" Now picture this: anytime you find yourself in the top or bottom of the turtle position, you easily take your opponent down and take the cross side, the back, the mount or... submit them right there, and they can't even see it coming.

Best part? You do NOT have to be an explosive, athletic wrestler to pull this off.

In fact, in these 34 videos, you'll learn how to use unbelievably simple techniques to completely nullify your opponent's strength and explosiveness and beat them to the takedown - every time. ”
