    What's better at takedowns. Judo or Wrestling?

    I wasn't sure where to put this thread at. Sorry. Anyway, both are about takedowns right?

    What makes you think the techniques in either are mutually exclusive? Also, are we talking gi or no-gi?

    I definitely agree with SamboSteve.
    With ~6 odd months of training in judo, I find that sometimes guys can walk in off of the street and take me down during their first lesson.
    While I am relatively big and strong, I guess I'm just non-athletic like that.

    Dead-on.

    At my school we have a competitive Judo black belt (in BJJ he's a Blue belt) and a fairly decorated wrestler. During the summer we go no gi and truth be told, they're about dead even until one of them gets tired when it's standing.

    One thing that is a little misleading about the question is that wrestling includes multiple styles: american style collegiate/high school, olympic freestyle, and greco-roman. If you practice all of these, the range of takedowns you will learn would be much more impressive then just say high school wrestling.

    One thing that I will say about judo. Everyone always worries about judokas ability to throw someone without a gi, I am just impressed by the creative use of clothing they have developed for takedowns. After all, people often wear clothes.

    I've been doing some wrestling lately, or rather no-gi Judo in a wrestling class. I have decent success with drop seoinage and kouchigari against wrestlers. But for no-gi BJJ nights, I've found kosotogari or tani-otoshi put me in a better position on the ground. Still trying to figure out a good grip for a no-gi uchimata or haraigoshi.
