Double Leg Takedown Counter Throw



Creative double leg takedown counter throw.  Starts out later than you ideally want to defend a takedown, the opponent is already penetrated through the mid-range and is already into a takedown. It's already too late to sprawl, think of this as a last ditch counter.

EDIT: Additional Technique 


Just came across this double leg takedown counter throw, it's similar in concept to the previous throw, however this is more ideal as the reaction comes before the opponent has penetrated your defensive range. Don't forget to check out the original posters, like/subscribe/share ect

MMA Takedowns



Difference in double leg takedowns, the basic shot vs the lower shot that is more effective for wrestling (i.e. lower levels and no striking) also not recommended because of the energy required to perform the shot each time.

Dan Gable - Leg double Attacks



Dan Gable goes over the double leg takedown, keep in mind these setups are for wrestling, so you have to adapt them for mma, aka protect yourself, watch for knees and initiate with striking.  The form and posture are correct for getting the takedown no matter the setting, ie. grappling, mma, or wrestling. Pay close attention to the posture and level change as well as the multiple setup attempts before the actual takedown attempt.

Double Leg Takedown


Some perspective as well as technique work, thinking of a double leg as similar to a jab. Seeing it as a weapon, but also as a tool to set up other techniques. Good points also about posture, changing levels when you're attempting a lift in order to get the practitioner's hips and legs engaged instead of the back and arms, which relies too much on strength rather than technique. remember to like and subscribe the the OP.

Tito Ortiz - Double Leg Takedown and Finishes


A couple variations on the double leg, by the Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz. The first is an outside variation with built in technique to avoid the opponent's guard. The second variation is a head outside, double leg (the opponent sprawls then turn the corner) that lands the practitioner in back mount, which is advantageous for obvious reasons.
