    I remember the step to the side grab their leg from way back in my Japanese Jujutsu days, there was another one that I can’t quite remember that involved me falling back on top of them and another that involved breaking one of the other guys fingers

    Thanks for the post

    The one you remember is you step to the side then step behind them creating a high/low kind’ve takedown and you fall on their stomach as you move your upper body backwards. Love that one myself!
