Punching your leg free

When an opponent shoots in and hauls your lead leg off the ground, a good tactic to avoid the takedown is to find your balance and land a string of punches to his unprotected face. The idea is to bother him so much with strikes that he forgets all about the takedown. Once you get your opponent to abandon the single-leg, push off of him and reset your base. The key to success with this technique is to think about positioning first and striking second. If your opponent drives in, you want to hop back and maintain your balance. If you think about striking first and positioning second, you might land a few punches, but eventually your opponent will compromise your balance and take you down.

I wind up for another uppercut.
