Sorry if this has been asked before, but I'm just curious about the general level of takedown proficiency out there. I went to a pretty large grappling tournament recently and couldn't help but notice that in bot the gi and non-gi divisions, there were a tremendous number of players who barely contested the takedowns at all. They preferred to "butt-scoot" I guess you call it and immediately pull guard. There was however a school that seemed to have a lot of guys and a few girls who were pretty athletic with pretty good single and double-legs with some throws and they did great overall in the tournament. They would get on top and dominate and submit from there. It seems this type of aggressive BJJ is highly effective but I know my school barely trains us in good takedowns and sprawls. What are other schools like and do you wish your school trained them more?
