The wrestling coach at Team Nogueira, Eric Albarracin, better known as “Captain America,” is already considered pretty much a Brazilian. With an appreciation for Jiu-Jitsu, Portuguese that’s getting better with every day, and a teaching style all his own, always requesting applause and grunts of “Uha!”, the trainer now teaches GRACIEMAG.com readers a double-leg-takedown counter-attack that results in landing in top position with the guard passed.
Pay close attention to the moment he switches grips and how he powers his opponent off balance.
IN JIU-JITSU AND WRESTLING ALIKE, THE SHOT HAS TO BE PLACED JUST RIGHT
Mexico’s Javier Torres, a contestant on the 13th season of the UFC reality show, for which Junior Cigano was one of the coaches, helps in demonstrating the position.
Get a good takedown move from Captain America and a lesson in Portuguese, to boot. Let us know if you can get it to work for you, below.
