MMA Beginner Series: Body Lock Reap

After successfully pummeling in and securing a body lock, my go to take down is the body lock reap. This is NOT a back trip.

Rather, we are staying on both feet the entire time, and are using a combination of body lock pressure, head pressure, and my knee reaping the back of his trapped leg to secure the take down. This allows you to remain in control the entire time.

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.

  • This technique works at all levels! I have been wrestling for many years, and I still use this. It’s very simple, but low risk and high percentage.
