Countering the Underhooks: the No Gi Uchi Mata

Getting the underhooks is one of the best ways to set up a takedown. We’ve seen it in a number of competitions, and the underhooks are a familiar staple of wrestlers everywhere.

Today, the guys at Big Guy BJJ have provided us with an excellent counter to the underhooks; the uchi mata. Usually, the uchi mata requires grips on a lapel and a sleeve in order to successfully execute the move. However, we will see below why it can also be done without.
