Bar Arm Takedown. In this video we will be working on how to take a subject to the ground with a Bar Arm Takedown.  We will start with the basic principals and move into how to use the takedown in a real situation.  It’s important that when you first start learning this technique, you understand the principal and how the takedown works. After learning the basics, then you can start to explore variations of the takedown.  As you know I’m very big on reality-based training and I believe it is important that you ask yourself: How would I apply this in a real situation?
