Mysnyk's Winning Wrestling Moves

I'm still having trouble with takedowns from kneeling, and I'm still having trouble doing anything while I'm on bottom being crushed. I need to get used to being on the bottom so I can survive better there....think more clearly, and move more effectively.
I don't think anyone really ever gets better at being crushed.  You can get better at shifting their weight off of you, and we'll work on that, but I wanted to mention a great source of info on kneeling takedowns.
.
Check out the book, Winning Wrestling Moves by Mysnik, Davis, & Simpson. Great overall technical wrestling book with a good section (pp 89-99) on short takedowns (so-called because you're shorter when you're on your knees.)
.
If you don't want to ante up the full price of the book for a 10-page section on short offense, don't worry, there is an excellent detailed discussion of the single- and double-leg takedowns including most of pages 5-60 and some scattered stuff elsewhere. You'd get your money's worth out of that - especially since there is no judo manual (that I've ever seen) that delves into leg picks to that degree.
