How to Do an Advanced Single Leg Counter in MMA Fighting

Learn how to do the single leg counter from Team Radical MMA head coach Rene Dreifuss in this Howcast MMA video, part two of two.

We talk about some basic single A counters now I do a little more advanced kind of cool counters. The first one was taught to me by Marcel Garcia and it is awesome. It’s the guillotine counter. All right, Chad’s got my leg. He’s got that single leg. Now the first video we talked about the whizzer. Now, uh oh, I can’t get the whizzer. Uh oh, I’m in trouble. I’m about to get taken down. But no, I push his head. What’s he going to do? He’s going to push back. He doesn’t like it here, especially have that knee, have that jumping knee. He’s not going to like it there, so he’s going to bring his head over here back. He wants to bring it back. He wants to bring it back. Boom. I bring his head over here and I make him tap. One more time.

Chad doesn’t like that one. Shoots in. Boom. No whizzer. Push, he pushes back. Bam. Guillotine, arm over. Grab your fist, turn, he taps. One more time. He shoots. I miss the sprawl. I miss the whizzer. Push the head, comes back, right there. Reach around, make your fist, grab your fist, turn. He taps. All right, that’s one advanced counter. I have an even better one. He shoots. Boom. Uh-oh, uh-oh. No whizzer. No guillotine, no push. He starts going. Starts going. Uh-oh. I get my leg out, right up here. Now what I’m going to do, I’m going to (?). OK. This second one is a little bit more when you’re on the ground so a lot of times here, he’s shooting in. Boom boom. Uh oh, we’re here. Turn, grab his arm, roll. Then your legs, come up. Punch him the face. All right. Two awesome counters. First one, go. Second.
