The cradle is a classic pinning technique used in wrestling, but did you know you can do all sorts of attacks for MMA and BJJ for it?
One of the easier setups is against a knee shield, which can be a pain in the butt to get around normally. However, if you lock up the cradle, which they are almost giving to you by being in a knee shield, you can easily get passed their guard with a butt flop.
Once we pass, we don’t settle down – we ramp up the pressure by tabling their leg on our hip. This then allows us to reverse the cradle, which will then make taking the back a cakewalk.

To become the best, we must continuously test ourselves. We measure our performance, evaluate our faults, accept criticism and then work on improving ourselves before starting all over again.
