What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of a double leg counter?
If you’re anything like me, it’s “sprawl.” That’s what I’ve been taught since I was a white belt.
UFC fighter Jessica Penne, however, has a different answer to that question: harai goshi.
Has anyone ever tried this counter? If so, how easy is it to pull off?
Harai Goshi as a counter to a double leg by UFC's Jessica Penne.Repost jflo1979#fbf 🤼♂️ Judo for mma & wrestling || Training former @ufc straw-weight title challenger @jessicapenne – harai-goshi as a good defense off an opponents high double leg attempt in our first session working together almost 4 years ago. A great alternative rather than fighting against a shot (sprawling) is to use your opponents energy by redirecting it for your own benefit as seen in this clip
