Know the IBJJF rules: takedown
I will be copying a small paragraph at a time from the IBJJF rules website and hope to educate our
readers on a informal way.
"When an athlete forces his/her opponent to the ground on all fours or belly-down, points shall only be awarded once the
athlete performing the takedown has established a back clinch on his/her opponent—hooks need not be in place but at least
one of the opponent’s knees must be maintained on the ground for 3 (three) seconds."
