    I'm looking to incorporate some new take-downs, advice needed.

    Hi all,

    I'm looking to work on some new take-downs / throws I can use in my BJJ game which will also translate well to self defence, kind of killing two birds with one stone if you will. I understand the ground isn't always where you want to be in a self defence situation but it would be nice to have the option if it's needed.

    I've worked on a few basic judo throws in training as well as some wrestling, currently the one that I feel works very well for me is the double-leg. I like the way you can shoot in or execute from a clinch, also I can get it to work against people bigger than me - which is helpful as I'm a tall skinny guy (I generally weigh around 11 - 11 1/2 stone).

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    -Alex

    Take a look at Geoff T's Dead or Alive, that has a few good throws and take downs in.

    However from the Combat Ju Jitsu i have done i've found that the best throws and take downs are the ones that are not generally found in the combat sport based arts or they have been adapted for competition.

    If you want to find some material from someone who knows their stuff on both self-protection / Combat Ju Jitsu & MMA check out Kevin O'Hagan.
    His website has a few brief clips from some of his dvds.
    Can be found here;

    Down and Out are the ones that concentrate on take downs and finishes on the ground.

    use more trips and takedowns than throws... much more chance of success

    Looking through my collection last night, Dave Turton also has a great dvd available on street takedowns, well worth a look.
