Here’s a really cool take down counter we did with Billy Robinson and Damage Control MMA when someone has a single leg take down with their head inside. In our own defense this was shot at the end of a long camp of hard training Ricky and myself were both pretty exhausted coming across a little shy on the camera. Make sure to take a look at the write-up damage control did on this technique at; http://damagecontrolmma.com/2013/04/cradle-counter-to-the-single-leg-takedown/ Thanks everyone.

Instead of spending Superbowl weekend watching sports we spent the weekend actually doing sports training with Catch Wrestling legend Billy Robinson. Pictured above; the group photo after the February 2013 Catch Wrestling Camp with Billy Robinson in San Diego California.
Myself, Billy Robinson and Jake Shannon (author of Say Uncle!: Catch-As-Catch Can Wrestling and the Roots of Ultimate Fighting, Pro Wrestling & Modern Grappling
and co-author of Physical Chess: My Life in Catch-as-Catch-Can Wrestling)
at my private studio in San Diego California.
Billy Robinson and my two oldest in San Diego California. They were both really excited to meet the famous wrestler who teaches their dad all his wrestling and “yells” at him when he doesn’t do it right!
A brand new really cool Damage Control clip I was fortunate enough to help out with featuring Catch Master Billy Robinson on how to counter a head snap down from standing wrestling and how to deal with an opponent who is difficult to get a snap down on.
