116 HWA RANG DO STAGE II: SETUP AND TAKEDOWN VARIATION 1: REVERSE C-LOCK TAKEDOWN The important thing to remember is to place maxi- mum torque on the joints, then drop the opponent’s wrist straight down. This is done by stepping back slightly with your left foot and dropping down on the left knee. Sometimes a foot sweep is applied at this stage, but it is unnec- essary if the angles on the wrist are properly applied. This takedown is easy once you understand that it is not a matter of throwing the person, but rather of simply lowering yourself while maintaining the lock on the wrist. 1 1: Stepping through with his right foot, Master Lee lifts Kang’s wrist overhead. 2: He steps around with his left foot, position- ing himself behind Kang and securing a painful reverse C-lock. 3: Master Lee steps back and kneels on his left knee, bringing Kang to the ground. 2 3
117 DEFEND • TAKE DOWN • SUBMIT VARIATION 2: WRIST-NECK CONTROL REAR TAKEDOWN This technique is applied when the op- ponent counters the takedown by forcing his elbow downward, decreasing the torque on his arm and wrist. As soon as he attempts to lower his elbow, quickly pull his wrist around his back and grab his left trapezius with your right hand. In doing so, you now control your opponent by forcing him to extend his spine backward. With the addition of a kick to the back of his knee, you further destabilize him and acceler- ate his fall to the ground. 1 1. Stepping through with his right foot, Master Lee lifts the wrist overhead. 2. As he spins out, either Kang pulls the arm down or Master Lee forces it downward. Master Lee then places the arm on Kang’s back, gain- ing a shoulder lock with the wrist pinned on Kang’s lower back.
