My first real hard training came from high school wrestling. I started late as a sophomore, and my coach Tirso Valls focused on basics. That was good, because back then I wasn't a fast learner. His favorite position was the Underhook, so naturally it became mine too.
I used it so much back in high school that it was pretty much all I would look for. I even had a throw named after me from the Underhook at my school - the Toucan Throw (at the time my nose was broken and very large, lol!). Just watch the quick video below to see me hitting it back in high school.
Once I started training NHB (No Holds Barred - the predecessor of MMA) nothing changed. I still used the Underhook religiously, and found it more useful than ever. Besides being a solid take down position, it also opened up a lot of striking options. Particularly for dirty boxing, no one made it more popular than MMA legend Randy Couture with his fight against Vitor Belfort.
If you are unfamiliar with the Underhook position, below is an example of what an Underhook looks like. Very simple. This is something that everyone can do right now and apply to their game. You might be wondering why this position is effective. A few reasons:
Besides, you are already using it. You just might not know how or why, but if you are clinching with someone, chances are one of you are going to get an underhook, and the other the overhook. So wouldn't it make sense to know exactly how to use this position that you are bound to get into anyways? I understand that if you have no background in wrestling that you may be ignorant of the position, but now that you are reading this, if you don't take the time to learn this position you would be choosing to be willfully ignorant - the equivalent of covering your ears and shouting to not hear the truth.
Absolutely! In MMA, Randy Couture is one of the greatest examples of excellent usage of the Underhook. Not only does he use it to take down his opponents, he controls them on the fence and uppercuts the heck out of people!
For BJJ, it of course works. BJJ is just wrestling with submissions, so you will end up in the same types of clinches on the feet that you would in a wrestling match. I have had a lot of success at the ADCC World Submission Wrestling Championships using the Underhook. If you watched the video at the top, you will see a bunch of great examples of my brother and I using the Underhook with great success.
Not only does the Underhook allow you to score take downs, but it also is one of the best escapes off your back in BJJ and MMA. Most people use it instinctively without even realizing it, but there is a lot of technique behind it that most people miss out on - that ends up getting them caught in chokes that are easily avoided.
Plus, if you want to get some highlight reel throws that can put someone down for the count, the Underhook gives you an assortment of high flying throws and brutal slams.
These are just a few examples of me using this in competition - and not against just your average competitor, but ADCC & IBJJF Black Belt World Champions. If I can do it to these guys, you can do it too!
These are just some of the basics and fundamentals of the Underhook, but you will also learn some of the more Unorthodox techniques like the Leg Scissors, the Monkey, the Aoki Throw, and the Avellan Sweep!
Altogether, there are 25 techniques that span over 97 minutes of detailed instruction. As always, I include the Underhook Series Mind Map and online updates for free.
