Favorite Takedown

I was just wondering what is everybodies favorite takedown and how they setup for them and also defend against it if it is done on them. Mine is the double under hook into a slam. I will usually set it up with punches and shoot in really quick and get my arms under his arm pits and lift him up and throw him in almost a belly to belly suplex motion. To guard against it I will either push off of him or get my hooks in under his, or if I'm against the cage I will get a leg hook in and hope he won't throw me.

Personally, I like to work from the over-under clinch, and I have a few takedowns I set up from there. Obviously the outside leg-sweep and the hip throw, but there are a few other, more interesting ones, which will probably be better for the thread.

The first is a variation of the low single, where I pull my underhook, grab my opponent behind one knee to lift it up and sweep the other leg with one of my legs. This typically lands me in half-guard, but it's also a flat half-guard, which is nice.

The second is a wizzer based on an aikido technique called sumi-otoshi. I lock in my overhook (and pull my underhook), and to finish the throw I step away from my opponent and turn my torso down. It's really effective and, if your opponent tries to just ground themselves, it can be adjusted to work as a leg sweep.

Those are sort of my go-to techniques that are a little bit out of the ordinary.

My favorites are O Goshi(Hip throw) from double underhooks or a body lock. Kazuhiro Nakamura has done this a couple of times.

Tawara Gaeshi which can go to mount and also counter a double leg takedown attempt.

Ko Uchi Gari

Hane Goshi and Uchi Mata - To hard to learn without proper instruction but videos below.

Videos of the techniques.

Sumi Otoshi is also a Judo technique.

I like the ankle pick, it transitons well Gi or No gi. I grap a underhook no gi and walk away from my opponetts lead leg then I explode and shoot in for the ankle.

My takedowns suck ass, but my favorite is the Seoi-nagi (sp?). I don't get to use it very often, but when I pull it off it's the best feeling in the world.

Seoi Nage is a powerful throw, It has a few variations do you do Ippon(One handed), Drop(Dropping) or Morote(Two handed). Although the throw i get the best feeling from is my favorite throw that i strangely didn't mention above Harai Goshi which is what Parisyan did to Burkman.

The Ippon is the only one I can do. I should learn to do the drop because I'm pretty tall, but I can't do it.

Either can i, I don't worry about it because it is a VERY popular throw and people expect it although it does work.

For some reason i don't have much intent on learning it anyway, I will eventully.

ippon is one of the first throws taught, due to the fact it teaches you to use your hips in a throw.
you being a taller guy the drop is one throw you should learn but forget about using. the drop is more so for a smaller guy vs a taller guy. but the drop is an easy throw to stop, if you see it coming with either palming the guys shoulder on his entry, or dropping down with a one knee into his spine(kinda dirty, but will make him think twice about pulling a drop). i use a drop it being one of my goto throws i also back it up with a kouchi makikomi or a single if the drop fails.

as a taller guy i would advise you to use a high lapel grip and attack with a harai goshi, uchi mata, or a tai otoshi. using sweeps to set up those throws, but if they lock out thier arms and bend over from your sweeps get euro grips and drag them into face plant.

i love to knock the wind out of people with impact control of landing the harai goshi, they have the, "oh shit, i can't breath look" with big eyes and open mouth.
