    i like to just shoot lol i use whatever take down works on my opponent even you dont get the takedown you can still drive them off the mat for 1.
    (i throw headlocks to especially after i shoot get em to sprawl alot and then catch them off guard) it works lol

    I agree with davidayers if you shoot singles (head inside and outside) and doubles if you can't finish you can drive them off the mat.

    I personally am not a big fan of the lat drop, maybe for training but I wouldn't use it.

    Just like any other throw, the lateral drop works great if you hit it when it's there. If you try to force it, you'll pin yourself.

    Normally, I like any kind of shot (low single, high crotch, single, double), duck unders, trips/foot sweeps, and I've really been falling in love with 2 on 1 offense and the shrug by.
    "Wanting to win, that is common to all. But working to win, the drive to go the extra mile, to push yourself while no one's looking..that is the mark of a true champion."

    I've recently become a big fan of foot sweeps, shots with a hook in, and the sweep single. Duck under's for me always goes without saying
