Double leg takedown is the best there. It's sort of like a spine buster wrestling move and also looks like a miny spear. But my point is that its kick a--. .

true if done right and with some force you can stunn your opponent long enough to attempt a submisison move or gain the mount.

The key to this is if done with enough force. I like the standard shoulder throw just because it sets you up in side control or half-guard.

If you do a hip throw you can't sprawl it. You can also land in perfect side control like ironman said. That's why it rules.

My favorite takedown is the sweep, not a foot sweep but the one where you slide behind the opponents legs and take them down from there. Its hard to explain online.

Inside Sweep or Outside Sweep from a clinch. It's actually a very basic takedown that is very applicable against opponents who are larger in stature. Also known as Ouchi Gari or Kosoto Gari (and their variants) in Judo.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

i like the firemans carry (although its hard to pull off somtimes)
usually i just push them a couple times then quickly drop down through their legs when they push back

i also like sprawling from a standing guilotine (does everyone know what i mean?)

im a fairly small guy, but im quick, so against bigger guys i try to get their back via an arm drag or similar then do a back spinning take-down

know what u mean...penjat silat uses it alot...

by manipulating the head u have control of the opponent....just twist their face to one side (up, down, left, right) and immediatly twist him to the other side with enough force...this will cause the body to colapse due to breaking of the structure...why turn it to one side then the other? well cause u dont want to use too much strenght and when u turn him to one side the person will strugle to keep his balance and will give u the momentum u need to take him to the desire direction....
