Once you’ve gotten a bit more comfortable with wrestling and once you’ve learned a couple of basic takedowns, it is time to turn towards practicing „The Sweet Art of The Feint“; that is, to feinting one takedown in order to successfully perform an another one.
To start practicing this Art, there’s no better way to do so than with the misdirection double leg.
William Abreu shows how he likes to set up his double leg. He fakes a single leg grab which makes the opponent step then William does a penetration step taking him deep into his double leg. The opponent has no chance.
Sell it well
First things first: if you want something to work, you have to commit to it fully. You have to sell the feint.
Instead of doing it haphazardly, you need to really go for it. Make the opponent believe that you are shooting for the leg that you’re feinting to, so that he can do nothing else but instinctively pull that leg back.
