    Yes judo has takedowns! In fact, some of your more traditional judo schools focus more on takedowns than matwork. IMHO many judo takedowns are very effective in "the street", although they will look nothing like they do in kata. That's one major difference between judo and BJJ. BJJ focuses more on matwork, so the whole goal is to get the opponent to the mat as quickly as possible and in any way possible. In judo competition, you can end a match by executing one good throw, thus never even having to go to the ground. For that reason, a great deal of emphasis is put on throws.

    If time is a real issue for you, then I'd go with judo. Wrestling will most likely be 5 days a week for 2 or 3 hours a day, plus travel time for matches. I still say it's worth it though, if you can fit it in.

    Both are good, but in high school wrestling is free while Judo will cost you money. Moreover, wrestling will give you excellent conditioning and tons of mat work. I would add wrestling to round out your Kempo and then add Judo or BJJ after high school.

    Judo in school? Is it varsity or just a club sort of thing? If it's actually varsity, that's awesome!

    Judo is a club and wrestling is like football. Train and compete.

    That is not necessarily true. Although in most situations involving physical confrontation, strength is an advantage.

    I've never done judo but i'd still say wrestling, just for the conditioning. You'll get street/mat applicable strength.

    But im not saying judo sucks or anything. Maybe take judo one year and next year wrestling? That's what i'd maybe do. some judo would defenitely help in wrestling.
