Nice. The single leg really seemed to be the dominant takedown.... much like in BJJ, MMA, and damn near every other form of grappling I've encountered.
There were one or two nice uchimata that impressed me.
Can anyone tell me, was the bit at the end sumo? Or was it just Mongolian Wrestling in sumo-like garb?

I like that move and use it myself as a counter to a counter to my fireman's carry attempt. I tend to end up with the opponent laying flat on their belly when I do it though, I'm not sure why, but it works for me. Maybe it's a short person's advantage.

Whenever someone asks what is Judo without the gi everyone should answer Mongolian Wrestling.

I've been shown a similar throw to this in Judo, I'm wondering though, the throw I was shown in Judo was a bit of a dick throw because if your opponent messed up flipping out of it he got a fucked up arm. Does this throw put similar pressure on the arm?

Awesome clip I can see a lot of similarities between Mongolian wrestling and Korean Ssrieum. Especially in how the grip the shorts when attempting throws.
