Down and Up

Down and up stands for takedown and stand-up, the two main elements of this dynamic jiu-jitsu drill.

Standard Process

  1. White and Blue are both standing.
  2. White arm-drags Blue,
  3. White shoots the double-leg takedown.
  4. White uses a leg-bundle pass to top-side-mount.
  5. Blue arches and shrimps to seated-guard.
  6. Blue does a technical stand-up and White follows.
