    The other day I got to do some BJJ from the feet for the first time. I noticed alot guys bend over at the waist alot and alot of the BJJ competition videos I have seen seems to agree with that observation. I managed to hit a tomoe nage because of this.

    I know a lot of guys here have cross trained Judo and BJJ so how effective are sacrifice throws in BJJ competion. I think if you do it right you get the throw or you end up pulling guard. Now admittingly, my sample size is pretty low and I could be reading something into the videos that isn't there. Are sacrifice throws like tomoe nage and sumi gaeshi good for BJJ?

    Yea, Tomoe Nage is good in BJJ because if you fail you still land in a good guard position. Just don't expect that to be high percent that throw sucks so bad.

    yep. I don't have links but there are a few good threads on this topic, too. "judo for bjj" or something like that.

    I definitely like the tomoe nage as when it is not successful, you can still play guard, as you mentioned.

    sumi-gaeshi is also a good throw to do on BJJers. As most of em play low its easy to get a good grip on their belt, or a good grip on the back of their gi for the throw.

    I usually go for a single leg in that position.

    The way I've been shown was to:
    Pull down on the lapel and up on the sleeve
    ...whilst shooting for the leg on the sleeve side.

    Let go of the sleeve at the last minute and grab the leg.

    when someone bends at the waist when getting grip control, I arm drag and take the back all day long.
