Overview

For the first time, "Grappling - Effective Groundwork" offers a concise overview of the most important of the fall, lever and other techniques from the numerous methods of groundwork, such as those found in Judo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling and Luta-Livre amongst others. Proper training in groundwork is not only interesting for those athletes practicing various styles. It is an essential element for all Martial Arts followers who want to be successful in Mixed Martial Arts competitions. This aspect, which often is the dividing line between winning and losing, is analyzed for the first time step by step. The transition between kicking and grappling distances, the transition from fighting in a standing position down to groundwork and the groundwork techniques themselves, as well as breaking away and executing finishing techniques are all examined. Besides the detailed descriptions of the respective fall and lever techniques, the subject of appropriate training and practical gymnastics exercises are also covered. Tips for training round off the book in a conclusion. There are well over 600 photos that allow the correct execution of all the techniques covered to be followed without a problem. This also provides the student and trainer alike with a good reference book that can be used at any time.
