Playing the takedown game in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu doesn’t have to be too complicated. Actually, it can be quite simple – if you learn how to set up takedowns which don’t require too many moves.
A Snap Down is a good example of that. It’s simple to both understand and set up; even though it has to be timed properly in order to get the full-fledged takedown.
