Wrestlers come into BJJ with the unfair advantage of a small arsenal of takedowns preloaded into their spongy, fresh jiu-jitsu brains. Chaining them to functional grappling finishes is the trick. Here we see them linked beautifully in this fireman’s carry to heel hook combo.
Brandon and Andrew at FolkJitsu help integrate the wrestling into a cohesive grappling for BJJ game. The transition from fireman’s (kata guruma) to heel hook is smooth because the takedown leaves you in possession of one of your opponent’s legs. Finishing requires a) mastery of the kata guruma, and b) keeping the leg while sliding to the ankle on your way to the floor.
