The Hook Leg Take Down or Shot Finishing Technique

This is a continuation from my post 6 Steps of The Shot or Take Down from the Take Down Seminar at West Side Jiu Jitsu.  Clint continued the seminar with finishing techniques.  One of them was how to finish your take down or shot with the hook leg take down.  This is a finish to use after you have done your follow through.  Clint does a excellent job I think of showing how to really step thorough your target and then follow through with the momentum to get the finish.  He also shows how to continue working for the finish if you don’t get it right off.  I think most BJJ practitioners are weak in this.  I know I am.  Clint even mentions at one point how a typical BJJ guy won’t even need the finishing move if the initial shot or impact is hard enough.   In most cases the target will just fall back and try for guard.  I found it easy to do the hooking motion.  But I noticed for my partner that has more muscle then me it was harder.

I have also included the video on YouTube.com  Here it is:
