    I like singles because they transition well into a lot of other stuff. Ouchi gari and ankle picks, for instance.

    Can't really speak to double legs, though.

    That's not a bad idea at all. Only thing I'd recommend is when you are shooting, don't drop to your knees hard. Once you get into that habit, and when you are fighting over glass broken street or lava flowing volcanoe. Your will break your knee dropping your weight on it. This is true for drop knee seoi nage too.

    As for takedown technique, I say focus on two. If you feel comfortable going in low, maybe kata guruma as your second arsenal.

    When you double leg, ideally you want to come into contact with your target before your knee hits the ground. Not only does that slow your knee to ground acceleration, it also allows whatever drive is left from your knee to the ground to push your opponent backwards. Hence the importance of the penetration step. If you were shooting knee first from 8 feet you'd probably have to worry about a broken knee.

    I did Judo before I did BJJ so I don't really have much of a problem.

    But as others have said I find it better to have just a few good throws than trying to memorize the codex of all judo throws. I have a couple of basic attacks that work well together. I have a couple that work well as counters.

    Having everyone fear your high altitude takedowns makes your work so much easier.

    it's always the basic tried and true techniques that work the best for me and everyone else.

    Hip throws, single legs, double legs, ankle/knee picks, and trips. If you can get good at those, and drill those as much as possible, your takedowns will never suffer. simple is best.

    OMG I went to my new gym in DC today and realized I'd walked into a wrestling class by mistake. I learnt more about takedowns in one hour than I'd done in my 18 months of BJJ. I'm definitly gonna continue going.
    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    "Step away," I hissed.

    PoleFighter just start grappling standing up once in a while. Also, when you have open mat have a takedown contest. Start standing and try to take each other down. After a sucessful takedown you and your partner start over again. Its an easy way to drill takedowns quickly and is used by many wrestling teams.

    Like the others said pick three takedowns and drill them in your takedown contest. Only thing I disagree with is to learn one for each situation such as moving forward or back. Pick 3, maybe single leg, double leg & hip throw. Learn each one from various setups such as moving forward, back and to the side. Then youll start to develop some good takedown skills.

    That's certainly a valid alternative to what I suggested.

    Would that everyone could make such a fortunate mistake!
