Also, I'm not sure what you meant about grabbing the leg vs. tani otoshi. Maybe I'd understand if I was better at judo.
I much appreciate the tips, BTW.
I play sambo and Kodokan judo rules- leg attacks allowed.
I keep my stance lower, playing attention on the footwork of the opponent.
With lower stance, its more difficult for him to go for taniotoshi and if he does, he need to go for a deep one.
As soon as he reaches with his leg, I grab it, before it even touches the ground and proceed with ankle pick.
Uchimata- I just go for it and if he doesnt fall immediately, I do ken- ken uchimata.
Regarding the osoto- in face to face position you have the option to go for both sides. Usually people go for the side of the trapped arm and in case of failure, they can also do makikomi. I use both sides, depending on both our positions. For the rear leg osoto, you need to be very close and tight or drop levels.
In case the opponent move his rear leg further back, you can go for ouchigari immediately.
