If the opponent attempts to defend a takedown late, a Takedown Drive will be initiated. During a Takedown Drive, the player can drive the opponent back by pushing the left stick towards the opponent. The player can also change directions on the takedown by flicking the left stick up or down. The opponent must then mirror the change to defend the takedown.

To defend a takedown, press L2+R2 (PS4) and LT+RT (Xbox One). If late on the inputs, you will have to defend a Takedown Drive by flicking the left stick in the direction the opponent moves.
