Nick ‘Chewy’ Albin: Setting Up Takedowns

Takedowns are some of the hardest moves for jiu-jitsu practitioners to pull off. In fact, for some people, they’re not just not even worth the effort – hence the reason many jiu-jitsu practitioners have earned the somewhat insulting title of “guard puller.”

But you should learn takedowns. Not only will they help you in a street fight, but they are good for competitions.
