Sprawl

A sprawl is a mixed martial arts and wrestling term for a defensive technique that is done in response to double or single leg takedowns. The sprawl is performed by scooting the legs backwards, driving hips downward landing on the upper back of the opponent attempting the takedown, while trying to underhook your opponent’s arms. The resultant position is also known as a sprawl or sprawling position.
