Tosses and Takedowns | Michael Panian

Michael Panian || Swordfighters || Canada

Practice in some of the common wrestling throws and takedowns. Throws and takedowns can be classified as passive or active. They work by controlling the top, the middle, or the lower part of your opponent's body through penetrating, unbalancing and/or destroying their root. This workshop will begin with ways to practice sensitivity and control of your opponent's balance. We will follow with representative throws and takedowns. The many ways to throw or takedown can be organized into just a few "themes" which facilitates wrestling under pressure. We will build on the basics from the other workshop but this workshop can be taken as a standalone class.
