In takedowns, one of the biggest weaknesses of many wrestlers and fighters is not being able to complete the takedown; in other words, they cannot maintain pressure on the opponent until he has been taken down completely. As its name implies, Stroops’ Takedown was designed to help fighters move more quickly and powerfully. The Takedown’s constant yet immediate pressure simulates an opponent leaning or pushing against the fighter, which gives them the strength and urgency to master the takedown to completion. Our Takedown has the unique characteristic of giving the fighter the sense of competing against a real opponent-without the physical wear on the body that real grappling generates.
The Takedown belt gives fighters the freedom to turn and rotate the shoulders and hips, while the six-foot Slastix allows them to run twelve feet from any anchored position, giving them a broad arena in which to practice. For grapplers, the Takedown lets you train while lying on your back or from a top position.
