Follow Up to the Front Quarter Nelson
I last posted one of my nephew James’ favorite counters to the tackling opponent, the front quarter nelson.
Just today I was at the news stand when I noticed in the techniques section of an MMA magazine, one renowned fighter’s counter to the double leg tackle was essentially what James illustrated. He shoots an overhook (over the opponent’s left arm) and pushes down on the opponent’s head with his right while sprawling.
Today I’d like to show James’ follow up technique to the front quarter nelson.
Note that the crossface depicted above could be a clothesline to the opponent’s throat.
