Simple Chop Breakdown And Tilt From Top Position

The tilt is a great technique to score quick and easy points from the top position. A couple of key points are to use your legs to drive forward and keep pressure on your opponent, and to control your opponent’s hips and arm.

When you are using your knee to drive your opponent forward, you should literally knee him in the butt. The forward momentum will help to knock him off of his base, and it will make it easier for you to trap your opponent’s arm.

To keep your opponent’s arm controlled, I like to grip with my thumb next to my index finger instead of wrapping the thumb around his bicep. Then you want to pull your elbow back and towards your ribs. After you suck the arm back and keep your elbow pinched to your side, it is hard for your opponent to get his arm back.

Your other arm should be wrapping deep around your opponent’s waist to control his hips. Make sure to drive forward over the shoulder to pull his hips close to yours.

Take the time to master this move, and you will see how easy it is to pick up points from the top position.
