So far I'm the only person who's marked other, so I think I should probably elaborate on mine.

Japanese Jiu-Jitsu and Aikido almost always start on the feet, so we actually practice using the submissions as takedowns. Sub-Takedowns are awesome, my personal favorite is the standing armbar to BJJ style shoulder snapper (reminiscent of the submission that Ed Herman threw on Danny 2 weeks ago on TUF).

Sometimes it's just easier to make them tap standing, but if I had to pick from on on your list I'd go with the "Japanese whizzer" (do people really use this term) a rush + shoulder toss + torque in the hips = opponent is one their back plus I'm passed their guard.

I do not really have a favorite but I like controlling the head and pushing them to the ground as they try to struggle just by controlling the position of the head, remember where the head goes the body will follow

not talking about a snap down, its a hard concept to explain online easy to show. but basicly by manipulating the head in various directions you can get the body to follw in predictable path, its simple body mechanics. I beleive somoene who studys akido might be able to explain it better as they ( if I am correct) use the principle mostly.

Not just akiado, happens in karate as well. I use balance points and weak spots in a persons stance to perform a valley throw while kinda half bear hugging. Ill find the video recorder and get a video done.

hmm that actually sounds like we can add a new section to this site maybe under the videos or traning section, we can put up our own videos for those that can and ask each other to analyze them, or put up videos showing different training techniques and such... Hmmmmm
