Wristwatch Grip

Grab the medial side of the ipsilateral hand palm to the posterior side of their hand, twist it anteriorly so their thumb is pointed to the rear. From here step in next to them shooting the underhook and “popping” their near chest with your shoulder, options:

  1. Reach down with your free hand and then your underhook hand to secure their near leg. Take a step back to “drop them in the hole”.
  2. If they step the foot back to avoid the single leg, drive your underhook up, as you step past them and knee tap the far leg
  3. If they try to whizzer with their overhook, control their head with your free hand, elbow pointed to the mat with your forearm along the neck, a drop step first your near foot (the underhook side) then your rear foot to spin them to the mat.

Later we took this same set-up of striking, using the catch and parry to underhook and do the same takedowns.
