At my academy we can go a month or more before having a random class where we drill takedowns or hip/judo throws. To say its a big gaping hole in our training in an understatmenet. What surprised me though is so far I've competed against guys from established gyms like Atos, Gracie Humaita, AoJ, and others and I was surprised that in every single case within seconds of starting it usually just ended with us in the ground in a half guard scramble, with no takedown points awarded. It made me wonder if takedowns/throw training is lacking in most BJJ gyms. How often do you train and drill them at your academy?
