Double Leg Takedown Tutorial Introduction: The double leg takedown is one of the most well-known and highly utilized wrestling takedowns in the world. When executed correctly, it is effective in grappling competitions, MMA, and the street.

To start things off, the man on the right (no shirt) adopts a more grappling oriented fighting stance here, really baiting his opponent to throw a punch by holding his hands low.
