    How do you like to set up a double, single, throw, or anything else?


    Since set-ups are arguably THE most important part of offense, what works for you?


    Also, what questions about set-ups do any non-wrestlers have?

  • #2
    As a non-wrestler and BJJ beginner I don't even know enough about setting up takedowns to have specific questions. The few articles my quick google search turned up were interesting and potentially helpful, but not exactly comprehensive:

    Any good links or pointers you could share would be much appreciated.

      Setups for wrestling / fighting

      At the training circle, we work set ups both attached and unattached.

      So we work in the swim drill, pummeling, and find a single leg and a double leg from each of:

      Arm Drag
      Two on One
      Duck Under
      Head Snap
      Slide By
      Shrug

      And also to take their back on some of them.

      We also work setups from biceps control and elbows control for the single and the double.

      Typically, we work at least one judo throw from each of those positions as well.

      So my guys will pummel for a duck under and either do:
      Single Leg
      Double Leg
      Minor Outer Reap

      Or they will go to Two on One and either:
      Single
      Double
      Major Outer Reap
      Or hit a duck under or an arm drag

      Etc.

      We do that almost every workout.

        Another set up - hit right then hit it left.

        another of our favorite setups is to hit the move to his left, and if he ties off his left, then hit right away to his right side.


        Single legs, duck under, and major outer reap all work well like this.

                I got it on Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more for a fraction of that price.

                  Just ordered it on Amazon -- thanks for the tip.

                  Also ordered BJ Penn's book on MMA, a book on conditioning, and a new book on Fedor (coming out in September).

                    What often goes overlooked in terms of set ups is simply movement itself. How you move around, toward, or away from your opponent and any of the various ways you make him move can have a huge impact on your ability to carry out your offense or counter.

                    If you know you can make your opponent step in a given direction, even for a second, you can time when his weight will be committed in a certain direction, which will 'freeze' a leg if only for a fraction of a second and that is when you can get penetration. Faking shots and anticipating reactions can give you even more of an advantage (provided you are right about how he will react).

                    A lot of folks talk about how 'fast' wrestlers are with leg shots and such, but you get a whole lot faster when your opponent isn't moving.

                      wrestling set up - movement - move away from the leg you want to attack

                      A good example of this is to "circle away from the leg you are going to attack"

                      This works well. Circle away from his right leg, and just before he sets it down as he steps it forward, throw his arms upwards and shoot in.

                      We're training that one more tomorrow, as a matter of fact.

                        Of course as with any set up, you need to be aware that your oppenent may be expecting that and use it to lead YOU into his counter. If I take a big, exagerrated step knowing you will take that bait I may have an advantage in countering since I can anticipate your action.

                        Sort of chess-like

                              I find that by pushing your opponent backwards when in a collar to elbow tie up works well for a single leg takedown. By pushing him backwards his natural reaction is going to push back. At first you fight him then you let him take a step forward and bam you shoot for a single leg on the leg he stepped forward with.
