The Head Inside Single Leg is one of my favorite take downs. It is very versatile, can be used against both bigger and smaller opponents, and can even be used to attack leg locks. To start this series, I’m working with the basic entry from the double bicep tie.
One thing a lot of people struggle with is driving from a head inside single leg. They keep the drive leg to perpendicular to the ground, which results in standing straight up.
Instead, you want your drive leg at a 45 degree angle, so that when you drive, your are pushing your head into your opponent and causing them to step back. This takes the weight off you when standing up and forces the opponent to balance, which is why it can work well with heavyweights.
