1. My opponent has picked up my left leg with a low-single takedown attempt. Note that his head is on the inside.
2. “Live toes” are very important here. I don’t want my opponent backstepping to finish the takedown. My leg is right where I want it.
3. I reach over his sholder with my left hand, grabbing his belt.
4. I make sure to weigh down heavy on that right shoulder of his; otherwise, I risk being lifted by a good wrestler or judo player.
5. My right hand grips his sleeve at the wrist. I don’t necessarily need to break his grip. The function of this sleeve will be to turn his upper body.
5. Here, I hop and turn, transferring my left leg from the back of his left knee to the back of his right knee.
6. I begin to lift his leg with my leg, utilizing a bowing motion (my whole body lifts, not just my leg) and I start to turn.
7. With my foot facing the same direction as my opponent’s foot, I hop towards his heel. All of his weight is on that heel.
8. I take my time and hop several times, closing the distance as my opponent loses his balance.
9. I finish by not following him down, but rather push my hips forward. Now I’m ready to pass his guard.
