Steve Scott teaches effective pins and breakdowns for Judo, Jujitsu, submission grappling & mixed martial arts. Although not the most glamorous ground-fighting skills, pins and hold-downs are the workhorse techniques of all forms of grappling. And before you can pin your opponent, you need to break him down. Breakdowns, sometimes call turnovers or transitions, give you the tools to dominate your opponent by setting him up for hold, pin or submission technique. For those new to grappling, Coach Scott begins with the basics of position, controlling your opponent and avoiding common mistakes. Then he teaches you 15 core pins and dozens of breakdowns to take your opponent from a stable position to one where you can dominate him and control the match. For fighters who prefer fighting from the guard position, Coach Scott includes an entire section on getting a pin from the guard. He wraps up with techniques for pin switching, moving from one pin to another without losing control of your opponent, and pin escapes. This book offers a comprehensive look at an area of grappling that is often overlooked. Steve Scott not only teaches you a wide range of pins and breakdowns that have been tested in gi and no-gi combat sports, he also offers tips on drilling, techniques for neutralising a standing opponent when you re on the ground, strategies for winning at ground-fighting and a brief history of grappling as an international combat sport.
