Chris Leben Teaches Double Leg Takedown Setup from Overhand Punch

UFC Veteran and Arena MMA Coach Chris Leben shows a simple and effective entry to the double leg takedown, using an overhand punch to set it up.


Coach Chris Leben:

What’s up? I’m Chris Leben, this is Jordan Donai, and this is your tip of the week. Okay, so real simple. If I wing my overhand, this guy has to respect it, otherwise he can get knocked out. So I’m going to show it to him. I’m going to throw a big overhand and as I do, step, boom, and I’m right inside on my double. Just an easy set up to get into my take down. One more time. Big overhand, head corkscrews through and we finish with the double leg. Chris Leben, Jordan Donais. That’s your tip of the week.
