This question is inspired by the grip fighting thread. Is there a hierarchy of grips and holds for gi and no-gi in the takedown game? Or is there certain parts of the body to get a hold of that are more dominant than others. Like is controlling the head the best thing, thereby getting both hands deep on the collar is preferable. Or do you always go for a high crotch if you can? Obviously if you can get behind your opponent you can bear hug him, and he can never grip you. But what if you are facing each other. Certain Grappling styles like Schwingen, and Scottish Backhold limit the amounts of grips to like one type. Is the over the top belt grip the ultimate grip?
