Matches and sparring rounds at respectable academies start from the feet. Because the goal of jiu jitsu is to finish people on the ground, teaching and learning takedowns often take the back seat. At most academies, you’ll be lucky to learn a single and double leg, maybe a judo throw. However, not only does taking people down feel incredibly satisfying, but it also helps you start a match-winning. In a self-defense situation, it may even save your life.
Don’t hesitate to learn a classic judo throw like the ouchi gari & start your grappling exchanges in style and in control.
