Summary For the first time, Mixed Martial Arts Ground Techniques offers a concise overview of the most important of the fall, lever and other techniques from the numerous methods of groundwork such as those found in Grappling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling and Luta-Livre amongst others. Over 1,000 color photos illustrate the correct execution of all techniques. Proper training in groundwork is not only interesting for those athletes practicing various styles. It is an essential element for all Martial Arts followers who want to be successful in Mixed Martial Arts competitions. This aspect, often the dividing line between winning and losing, is analyzed step by step. The transition between kicking and grappling distances, the transition from fighting in a standing position down to groundwork and the groundwork techniques themselves, as well as breaking away and executing finishing techniques are all examined. Besides the detailed descriptions of the respective fall and lever techniques, the subject of appropriate training and practical gymnastics exercises are also covered. Practical training tips round off the book in a conclusion.
