    Just curious how much your BJJ classes focus on takedowns? 0 to 5%, 5% to 10%, 10% to 20%, 20%,to 30%, or >30%. If a moderator or an admin could make this into a poll, that would be great.

    There have been like three or four threads about this topic this week alone, just FYI.

    My gym has two half-hour takedown classes a week. One is gi and one is no-gi. I go to both.

    For me its 0-5%

    I also do Judo to learn some throws, problem is I'm having trouble translating them to BJJ competition.

    Two out of eigth classes a week are takedowns only, one gi and one no-gi. Takedowns occasionally rear their head in the other classes as well, but that is rare.

    I'd like to point out that while it may seem that we do 25% takedowns, these two classes have much lower attendance than the regular ones. Takedowns are hard work.

    Usually, the first 1/3 of each class focuses on the standup.

    We have 2 takedown classes per week. Otherwise probably 5% in BJJ alone.
