Double Leg Breakdown to Half Nelson

If you had 1 turnover technique to teach a beginner in#judo, this would be it. Without a doubt. This series can show how to break a partner down to their belly, turn them over, and pin - all in a fluid series of techniques.

Things to note:

  • grab belt and fight those heels under uke's belly
  • heels have to be touching!
  • pop the back of uke's arms with the back of your hands to flatten them out - hook neck for half nelson
  • switch free hand to the same side of your body once you get to 90 degrees - finish in Kami Shiho Gatame (上四方固)
