Technique of the Day

The duck under.  This is basically a move to get behind your opponent (and ultimately take their back) when in the clinch.  It sets up all sorts of new possibilities, such as throws, trips, and as aforementioned, taking the back.

I know I normally post videos relating to submissions, but it's also important to understand wrestling techniques.  This is one technique I've seen used a lot in MMA as it translates very well from pure wrestling to fighting.  For a detailed step-by-step explanation of how to perform the duck under, click here.
