Ep. 56 - William Tackett's Duck Under Breakdown

No Gi - All, No Gi - Upper Body Takedowns

In the Third Coast Grappling 5 main event, William Tackett defeated Fellipe Andrew via heel hook. Before the submission though, William executed a beautiful duck under from his opponent's wrist control tie to bring the fight to the ground. Michael breaks down how William's duck under differs from episode 55's duck under, what changes are needed if you don't have control of your opponent's upper body (collar tie, elbow tie, etc), and how Fellipe's thumb down grip gave William the extra room he needed to disappear to the back.
