5-06 Double Leg Attacks

5-6. DOUBLE LEG ATTACKS

Going under the enemy’s arms and straight to the legs is a very useful type of attack. There are several ways to finish depending on the enemy’s actions, but the initial attack is the same. When you find yourself relatively close to the enemy, change your level by bending both of your knees and drive into his midsection with your shoulder (Figure ;5-32). One of your feet should penetrate as deep as the enemy’s feet. Continue to drive and control the legs to end in side control.
