Jiu Jitsu (No Gi) - All, Wrestling - All
Michael Trasso's opening match victory at the 2020 IBJJF No Gi Pan American Championships came down to a takedown. As Michael shot a double leg from space his opponent defended by sprawling and underhooking his arm. Michael quickly transitioned to a sag headlock off the shot attempt to secure the takedown and win the match 2-0. This episode truly highlights the importance of chain wrestling!
What is Chain Wrestling? Chain Wrestling is a methodology of linking a combination of offensive and/or defensive moves together that lead to points. The Chain Wrestling concept will get wrestlers (and Jiu Jitsu students) thinking a few steps ahead of their opponent and will become more instinctive through time.
