IMBA Muay Lert Rit’s approach to combat is structured around striking (hitting the opponent as hard as possible), throwing and, once on the ground, finishing the enemy with kicks or knee drops. The taking down phase is, as we have seen, of crucial importance for implementing this general strategy. The technique shown here is one of the best ways to floor opponents, even if they are tall and heavy; with a minimum use of energy this technique is capable of quickly and efficiently putting the enemy on the ground where he can be more easily dispatched.
