    i'm partial to the ankle pick and a body lock outside trip.

    i practice shooting a lot but am not very good at landing them on people.

    We drill them at the beginning of every class, but I almost always start rolling from my knees. :dunno:

    I wrestled and seem to fall back on those takedowns instead of judo style stuff.

    i like outside singles and ankle picks. very low risk, don't really have to worry about getting guillotined. duck unders are great too cause if you hit it real nice you'll have their back right away.

    Singles/Doubles.

    I practice them but I'm still too scared to attempt them in actual competition, I don't know why, I feel like I would get caught in some submission like a guillotine but I use it more for my takedown defense. I used it part as my gameplan at worlds since my opponents weren't able to take me down, I was able to dictate the ground game, until they pulled guard on me :o Which was kind of what I wanted, kind of. :wtc:

    I'm a fan of the single and/or arm drags.. feel strong in the clinch for my size.

    My school is a judo and bjj school so most of my takedowns are judo based. Drop seonaige, etc..

    I've got a good outside trip too. I practice doubles but never use them at tournys.

    this is what always used to happen to me because i didn't care, or i'd pull guard or half guard. But our instructor is drilling us to never pull guard and always work for the takedown, in his opinion pulling guard relinquishes dominance.

    But for me i like the clinch and arm drags, starting to get good at those, don't really drill too much takedowns in the GI would LOVE to learn some judo.

    I like arm drags and duck unders....sometimes I'll go for an over under body lock with an outside trip. I rarely shoot for singles/doubles but if it's there I'll go for it.

    I wrestled for 6 years and if i am doing gi takedowns, I pretty much don't use any of it. Gi is so based off of judo techniques almost nothing works from a typical wrestling stand point. No-gi I kick ass in takedowns I don't think I have ever been taken down in a tournament.[I am sure the day will come] My judo is alright, I am not very good for a techinquic standpoint, I just intrgrate wrestling moves and do those.

    Favorite move is the arm drag in to single leg/leg sweep. And another good one is my single leg defense, I score more takedowns from people trying to take me down then i do from any other move.

    it's in the technique. throwing them over should be relatively effortless. if you get stuck you can just dump them forward.

    Do lots of deep squats. :o

    I've been working on that (the judo version, kata guruma) recently, and if you get low enough, the guy just rolls right across your shoulders onto the ground.

    My weak point is also the leg strength to lift the guy to throw him for a score, instead of juts getting him to the ground. It's worse because I'm taller than most of the guys I work out with.

    :werd: The key is unbalancing him and getting him moving toward you. Once you do that, all you do is drop below his center of gravity and he goes right over.

    i get this alot. ALthough i'm not that good and i kinda have to drop down for a single. But people still don't expect it and are always kinda thrown off. Mostly because we don't have any real good wrestlers that train with us though
