    If you're interested in MMA I would suggest also looking into some Judo. Not so much the big hip throws, but a lot of the foot sweeps and reaps work extremely well from clinch positions in MMA and are pretty low risk. They also generally don't require quite as much control to pull off as some of the GR throws.

    Thanks for posting this one, the USA syllabus vids of the 90s are my favorite wrestling instructionals (esp the Bruce Burnett one) so always interested to see the updates. & now they're even free!

    I was digging through some old threads and came to one where you were recommending a Khabelov seminar tape to someone, any idea where to look for that? It doesn't seem to be on the 'net that I can find. Unless it's hiding on some Russian/Georgian website with an obscure title...

    Judo for MMA is very different than Judo for Judo's sake. The reason I like to incorporate it (other than that I'm a lot better at Judo than wrestling) is that Greco rule prohibit attacking with the legs, and many of the most efficient clinch takedowns involve tripping or sweeping your opponent. Call them freestyle throws if you want, it doesn't matter, but if you're working on clinching for MMA inside and outside trips (ouchi gari and kosoto gake in Judo terminology) and ankle blocks (sasae tsuri komi ashi) are really, really good moves to have in your game. By far the most commonly hit clinch TD in MMA is the outside trip, you really should learn that whether you learn it from a wrestler or a Judoka. I would however advise getting your clinch handfighting and positioning stuff from Greco guys though, Judo doesn't have anything useful to say about how to best clinch up without the gi.
