The Merge: JAKOB CAMACHO DOUBLE LEG KNEE SLIDE & FINISH DETAILS

bjj | 03/25/2021

When your opponent sprawls on your shot, there is a small window of opportunity to adjust your position. Remaining stationary and holding on to their legs will break your posture, weaken your takedown, put your opponent in a powerful defensive spot, and possibly lead to a front headlock or guillotine choke. Michael breaks down a highlight of Jakob Camacho implementing a powerful adjustment that got his hips and body back into a strong position to finish the double leg takedown - the knee slide. Michael also shows an alternative double leg takedown finish and emphasizes the importance of short, choppy, and consistent steps while finishing.
