    9chambers: from what I've seen, the wrestling stance is very crouched and forward-leaning. While this is good for takedown defense, and fine once contact has been made, it will earn you lots of punches and kicks to the head and limit your own ability to strike and kick efficiently. If I understand thomasaaron correctly, he wants something to complement standup striking, not replace it.

    If any of this reasoning is wrong, please correct me.

    Here's some advice to avoid being taken down:

    (1)Keep your distance. More distance equals a longer and harder entry for the grappler. You can catch him with knees or just push him off as they come in. (2) Circle. Do not just stand still or move forward and back. A moving target is hard to get ahold of.

    Here's my 2cents on the best way to acheive your goal, which seems avoiding the ground, not being a master groundfighter. Learn wrestling.

    Wrestling has the best takedowns, Period. You will learn how to take people down, avoid takedowns, and gain advantageous position on the ground. That's all you really need. You get on top and punch the **** of out of him. Simple.

    No place to wrestle? Then I suggest no-gi sub wrestling. If that's not available, then BJJ.

    If you decide to become a master groundfighter, than take BJJ. BJJ/submission wrestling has the best ground game, Not judo. Judo is the strongest at GI throws, not takedowns or no-gi throwing. The best at no gi throws is Greco-Roman wrestling. Not to say that Judo isnt good, but modern day Judo works out in a gi (and people generally have some kind of clothes on, so it's still very useful), and does not place a strong emphasis on groundwork. Although with the NHB craze that may be changing.

    It really really depends on what kind of judo club you find. If you find a good one that isn't too tournament oriented, I think it'd be hard to find something better.

    Oh yeah, but if you take judo, definately experiment with it. Try things out with street clothes etc etc etc and see how things change.
