Yes, and shoulder throws and wrist throws and sacrifice throws and sweeps. In my Singapore Dojo we even train wrestling style takedowns. In fact, pretty much if you can imagine it, we train it. Although I'm only a white belt, I already know about a dozen takedowns. I've learned around 6 locks to finish off the takedown and I've trained all of these techniques from the standard Judo sparring grip, from a punch to the face or gut and from strangulation from infront and behind.

A lot of the takedowns involve locks before the takedown. So you might put someone in a standing back-hammer lock and then place their face into the pavement. Not a pretty technique, I assure you. Last time I had that done to me I had a nasty mat burn along my eyebrow which stung for about a week.

It's a lot of fun and a little dangerous sometimes. After all, unlike Judo, Jujutsu has all the nasty parts left in. This is why some (but not all) techniques must be trained with a co-operating opponent.

I use a mixture. I prefer trying takedowns from the clinch, because I'm not that good at outside shots yet.

Here's a few tips....

Make sure you have proper technique, and practice till you think you've mastered it, and then practice it some more.

An outside shot doesnt have to (and shouldn't) be taken from 3 feet away. Get closer and make that shot as short as possible.

The most important part of the takedown, and I cannot emphasis this enough, is the set up, bar none. Disguise your shots with punches; unbalance your opponent, use angles, combinations, don't shoot unless he's moving into you...these things are the key to success with takedowns.

I'm with you BigRod. I am too much of a chicken to try outside shots, I usually work from the clinch (or reversal if I screwed up )

i've only been taking danzan ryu jj for six weeks. so far it has been all about not getting on the ground. wrist locks, arm bars, figure 4 locks. the list goes on. i suppose what i'm trying to say, is that when uki advances on me, that gives me time to settle my mind and relax into "go no sen". remember, we are traing for the one in a thousand chance that our training will come in handy, or, just for fun (why, i wouldn't know), anyhow, stand up, let uki advance, counter his attack (it's almost certain the bad guy has no training in fighting technique and is in for a rude awakening), lock him up and put him down.

really, why do you want to shoot? (if i am reading you right)

As mentioned earlier I like a situational take down, I like to get them defending a high attack weather its a high punch or trying to defend against clinch/seionage, then I'll shoot for the single or double leg takedown or duck under and suflex body slam.

Or when they have covered from a three punuch or kick combination then I sweep or pickup a leg and drive them to the ground. The safest takedown for me is when they are trying to avoid/run from a hand/kicking attack and their backs at an angle away or they are looking over their shoulder high cover. Then the double leg diving tackle mounting his back is what I like to do.

it sounds like you excell at mat work. myself, i do my best to stay on my feet. unless you run into another trained fighter, and trained better than you -- once you apply your standing technique, homeboy wants nothing more than to gather up his broken a** and crawl home. why get dirty?

I can work from either but I prefer the clinch. They are already in close so using your body as a fulcrum for a hip toss or what have you. Of course as pointed out, if you are fighting another skilled fighter this may be more difficult. I know you don't have to be strong to hip toss or sweep or what have you but in my case I have found it to be an asset especially when you are tussling for an advantage when you are in the clinch.

Shooting for the leg take down, I like it but must always remember not to put the head down and to shoot in and lower your body with your legs to come in and under (back staight/head up). This way if you can't get the legs wrapped up at least you may be able to maneuver around them and grab them from behind or just evade.

If they get a good hold of me and we have to go down then let's go down but you are on the bottom. My impact won't be as near as bad as yours as you will have to contend with the ground plus my 200 lb frame landing on you. Then while you are stunned I'd better get busy and tie you up (class) or immobilize you (real life - elbow smashes, etc).

Heavier clothing can certainly be an asset to grab on to but I don't rely on it. If it is there sure why not use it but then I've been in cases where I have and got fingers stuck in the clothing when doing a take down that hurt me more then it hurt them.

Also nice is shoot in head to head and get into a short clinch and then back out quickly and hopefully you were quick enough or smart enough to get a good hold of a hand, wrist or arm that you can twist while turning your body into them to get a good throw on them and where you can continue to keep this appendage through the throw to finish them off with an arm bar or wrist lock and/or bringing your knee down on them.

So many fun things to do that is only limited by ones imagination.
