Just a suggestion, as for a tall guy it would be easier to engage a clinch and underhook than a shoot and single or double leg.
Personnaly i dont have alot of experience but that is my unerstanding of one of the advantages of said school of wrestling.
That's what I was thinking... I definitely need more practice with both too. Unfortunately, my trainers tend to favor teaching shooting for the takedown. We do get time to drill whatever takedowns we want though, so I'll have to take a look at some technique and practice this one on my own. Thanks for the input!
