You may want to check the judo forum. Takedowns are their realm of expertise.

if your in the clinch, push toward them to get them to push towards you, then suddenly stop applying pressure int here direction and use the force they give you.

-works with most directions, if you try and pull them towards you, there genna try pulling away to keep there balance, if you suddenly stop pulling, there genna unbalance themselves for a second.

Anything that causes a gross body reaction. A strike (or feint) to the groin may cause them to lean forward and you can take their center.

A poke to the throat may cause them to lean backwards and...

A knee to the nerve center on the thigh...

A wrist lock which causes them to buckle...
