    I spent 3 hours in the gym yesterday and 1.5 of those hours were spent learning double legged take downs. everything hurts. everything.

    taking someone down isnt bad at all. getting taken down fucking sucks.


    Are wrestling mats softer than the mats at my gym. :squint:

    uh... don't try to land on your shoulder when someone slams you or takes you down. thats a really good way to dislocate it. you're not going to be rolling anywhere if the guy has a hold of you.

    NO NO NO AND FUCKING NO!

    seriously they did not teach you to breakfall? Personally as somewhat of a takedown enthusiast (Judo player that is some dumbass shit right there, and would seriously look for another school. I would not teach anyone judo until i was confident that there breakfalls were up to par. Firstly for there health and saftey, secondly for insurace sakes

    Basic technique of a break fall is as follows:
    Land on as much as your back as is possible (do not try and land on your shoulder or your neck/head as if you won't be sparring for more than a year if you do that)

    As you land extend a leg (if possible) to be flat with the surface upon your impact, as you land have an arm (if possible) also extend towards your toes.

    This should allow you not to get the wind knocked out of you or damage yourself too badly

    As for your wrestling school, they should be ashamed for not teaching you how to get thrown first. I can't express that enough

    .

    when I learned wrestling the first thing they taught us was how to land, we drilled it for a good hour before he showed us something else. comes in handy situations too, like slipping on ice :hsd:

    tons of stories about this but most are bs, my instructor and his 12 year old son were doing a competition bikeride and came to a downhill going very fast. Someone had fishtailed in the gravel on the shoulder and spread gravel out on the street. Apparently they hit a rough patch going fast and got launched off their bikes. They both went over the handlebars and because of instincts/judo training basically rolled through it. Ended up with only injuries being to their forearm/tricep/shoulder area superficial.

    Learning to fall/roll out of shit is incredibly useful, and should be taught to anyone fighting, wrestling, or otherwise.

    no wrestling program drills breaking falls and stuff. its a judo thing. in wrestling you just learn by doing. you get taken down enough, slammed enough, etc, you just learn. in wrestling, if your sprawl fails you just try to belly down anyway.

    for bjj, just try to land in guard.

    traditionally this is accurate, but lots of seminars are popping up teaching the similarities/cooperative nature of wrestling and judo. Lots of people are teaching wrestlers judo and judokas wrestling.

    My coach was the same person for both sports.

    Some of you guys need to stop telling him to land on his back. He's wrestling; going to his back would be retarded.

    I don't care if he is going to lose a wrestling match, id rather look after the health of a fellow cage member rather than him winning a match, secondly no matter how good of a wrestler you are, someone out there will be able to take you down and when that happens you better hope you know how to break fall. Go back to being a keyboard warrior elsewhere thanks

    anyway, as much as a tosser this guy looks like, and his stupid hand postures, this is how to breakfall, look where he places his legs and hands and the posture of his back when he breakfalls.
