I'm fairly lucky where I live in the fact that I have an internationally recognised Judo club and an exceptional standard JJ club all within 5 minutes of where I live.
Unfortunately I have been doing neither long enough to know what my favourites are. However, certain techniques that I have come to enjoy using, learnt within my karate syllabus, are the body drop (tai otoshi??), inside reap (O uchi gari??), shoulder throw (ippon seoi nage??) and outer reap (O soto gari??). Favourite hold has got to be RNC.

Any arm bar or wrist lock to gain a submission
Wrist throw
I wouldn't hesitate to use a choke hold in a life or death situation, but I won't use it in training
Hip throw is good against a light person

Kimura, Americana, Top Wrist Lock, Double Wrist Lock, Keylock, Paintbrush are all Ude-Garami in Judo (although some of them aren't legal in current Judo competition because they attack the shoulder and not the elbow).

I don't really diferentiate between them, except in defense, since I can defend the Kimura (Tree-Down mentioned earlier) very easily and have almost no chance in defending the Americana (Tree-Up) once it's locked in.

My favourite Techinques are
1) Triange Choke (Sankakujime)
2) Straight Armbar (Jujigatame)
3) Elevator Sweep (no idea what it's called in Japanese)
4) Valley Drop (Taniotoshi) tied with hopping on the back
5) Bodylock takedown (Greco-Roman type move, sometimes with a trip)

Good choices friend. Believe it or not every one of those are on my list, excluding Yoko Gake.

My favourite moves would be.

1. Osotogari
2. Rear Naked Choke
3. Ogoshi
4. Jujigatame
5. A variant of Haraegoshi (which works wonders if people jump on your back)
I'm starting afresh.

OK. I found that I was wrong about it being a variant of Haraegoshi. But I have no idea what the last throw on my list actually is. So I suppose that is the best way to give you some idea.

Hello Taison:

Healthy Belly Laughter ???), my favorite technique. Learn to laugh at myself, laugh at the challenges and MEAN it... how will I be attacked..... scenerio:

"...Nope, you're right I am a jerk, completely wrong, you are RIGHT... my mistake.... nope I was dead stupid wrong..."

Long way to go before I learn this well enough...
