MMA Tip: Gable Grip
This video will show you what I feel is the best way to clasp your hands when grabbing an opponent and taking them to the ground.
Many people interlock their fingers, and while this may seem like a strong way to secure a grab it actually opens you up for some very easy injuries. If you were to fall to the ground with your opponent and land on your hand, you will most likely break one or more finger.
Using the gable grip in this video you will not only be able to secure a strong hold but will also be less likely to get injured and can easily break away if you want to release them.
