Now I know that this has probably been done to death, but I guess I'm just too lazy to Google it or do a search plus I thought were else would be better to learn than from the posters in the Grappling forum? So anyway, here are my questions: 1. What is/are the differences between a shoot and a takedown? Are they even different? 2. How do you execute this move? Is there a difference in how to do it from a BJJ guy and a wrestler? How do you do both? 3. How do you defend against these? I hear about and see a lot of sprawls in MMA, but again, I'd rather take the advice of pure grapplers who've perfected technique than watch fighters who more often than not, have developped bad habits. Thanks a bunch, guys! I'm a bit of a n00b here, and a little help would be greatly appreciated.
