    Default How to set up the shot (take downs)

    Reading off the Q!A section of Cael Sanderson's website he offers advice to someone regarding finishing take downs. He mentions how it's better to set up a shot a thousand times and get it once than shooting a thousand times and not setting it up. When I think to myself about these statements, it makes so much sense; it also made me come to the realization I suck at shooting. Last year out of 16 matches I shot 8 times. Sad I know, but true. How exactly do you set up your shots? I know there's more than one way, so any explanations, videos, tutorials, demonstrations, or whatever else would be appreciated. I want to work on ways to set up the shot. Thank you. Peace.

    Just a little suggestions, you should try some drags while hand fighting into shots. Works great.

    Watch some of his videos. He will show you a lot of great ways to set up shots!

    And it doesn't always have to be a shot, you can use some ankle picks, a fireman, duck under etc... You will be way more successful in your take downs if you vary.

    Whats your weight and relative build smileyman? I have a friend from highschool that didn't shoot once his senior year and took third at state as a heavyweight. He had freaking killer headlock and toss series. That being said, that's not going to work for you as a lighterweight against elite wrestlers.

    My weight is 171 I'm trying to drop down to 160 later in the season. My build is athletic, not too much muscle, but enough.
