    Yeah, I have no idea what the stigma is against it. Maybe its too "Judo" ? lol. My coach is a black belt in Judo also and he doesn't even like it much but he is very short so there are a couple forward throws that he really favors.

    The people in my club REALLY like setting up different leg picks (a possible reflection of the instructor's habits), so that's what they stick to. Of course that's totally fine by me 'cause everytime they stick that leg out, it's single leg takedown time!

    Ha, I do that **** constantly...plus kouchi, kosoto gari. My favorite throw right now is uchi mata, but my "go to" attempts in randori usually end in a clusterfuck situation I like to call "mutual tani otoshi"

    Ura nage and Tani otoshi are counters I use too (Uran nage with smaller opponents and Tani for bigger fat fucks), also Hiza Guruma is a nice throw that works great, and just like tani, not many people are expecting it

    I've been spending a lot of time (well at least before my latest injury) working Uchi Mata after failing a single leg or double leg. Often it's a simple matter of quickly changing grips before uke has time to react and then either continuing the direction of the takedown or going the direction they are trying to sprawl.

    My best throw that I nail everyone with is Yoko otoshi 9side body drop). I even nabbed people at my first judo lesso with it. I am terrible at Judo as all I try to do is wrestle. I crouch low and tuck in my hands and wait for someone to make a mistake (I can't shoot with a gi on). When someone attempts a throw I duck behind stick my left leg out and torque my hips. I get someone alomst every class with it.

    I barely ever throw. I sweep or trip ocassionaly but I mostly stick to double leg take downs. I got the best timed one last night, guy just ran right into it!

    I use a trip everyonce in awhile that I like. I do a duck under and hold the neck as I go through, trapping the arm. My other arm circles the waist and I trip his near foot, falling over my back.

    My best technique is an ankle pick into te-guruma. If I really hit it I lift the guy up the chest level then put him down and if I only get a piece of it I can usually drag the guy around and flip him once he loses his balance.

    Another of my favorites is uchi-mata into an ankle pick. Coming in right handed and slightly to the side on the uchi-mata you hit it and if he steps off of it (or you just want to hit the ankle pick) release his sleeve with your left hand and grab his a right ankle (the leg you didn't hit with the uchimata). Almost always works if the guy isn't used to it and you can do it gi or no-gi.

    Now that sounds like something worth practicing!
    Thanks!

    Oi, I could be reading the technique wrong but I think I do the exact same thing when my ippon seio doesn't work. Just slide down, pivot a tad and inside leg gets an o-ouchi while my inside hand grabs ankle/knee of opposite foot. I love that one because I thought of it meself :icon_sunn

    My judo sensei loves the leg sweeps so we get a lot of work in on 'em. Here's the thing tho', from my other skool where we learned a ton of throws at once and then improved them and randori for rank, it's a few for a long time and perfection then another few in this skool, and my sensei doesn't approve of me using tech's "above my skill level" (which I guess I can sorta see) but a tech I liked in randori back at home was ura nage, now it's off limits.:5brokenhe

    The thing this dojo DOESN'T do a lot of is sutemi waza. Yeah, personally I like tani otoshi (and it's in my skill lvl) but the guys in my dojo seem unwilling to do them (or are passed the point of needing them or something, I dunno) so I never see any tomoe's sume gaeshi's yoko wakare's or anything of the sort...
