Side Hair Grab with Scissors Takedown

Side Hair Grab with Scissors Takedown

This takedown may sound complicated but it isn’t really. It’s all in the legs.

My favorite part of Sil-Lum Kung-Fu classes were the kicks, because I love to kick….

but then I started to learn the takedowns when I was a yellow belt (they are a requirement for the green belt test). My favorite takedown is the side hair grab with scissors takedown. I had a thing for the scissors motion – one leg went backward and the other forward. And learning to fall the right way took awhile to get down. But once I got the gist of the move, I loved it!

This phase I call “FALLING AND LEARNING TO GET BACK UP.”
