Hello, everyone. I haven't been training properly during the last couple of months due to injury, and only managed to do a proper return to BJJ class recently. My teacher was thinking about setting up a takedown class for a while, and recently, he managed to set it up and it is a success. I first managed to attend part of the class yesterday. There were no techniques being taught for the day, since they were taught in the last class or something. Then, we went for something similar to what we call the raspa-passa-finaliza, which is like a roll, but you change partners as soon as someone gets swept, passed, or submitted, but this time, it was takedowns only. I'd go and say it looked a lot like judo, but I don't want to sound like an ass and my judo experience consists of attending a free class as a kid, ripping my pants and never going there again. I got absolutely tooled by everyone on the class, didn't manage to take anyone down or do any proper throw, other than some sort of sacrifice throw, which I found out that isn't allowed on the class. I'm terrible at takedowns, tend to pull guard most of the time, and the most I end up doing when it comes to throwing are sacrifice throws, which usually end up sacrificing my dignity, and the eventual hiptoss. My shooting is non-existent. One thing that hinders me a lot is that I'm often afraid to shoot or try anything that isn't completely lazy. I've cracked my tailbone in the past, and that makes me scared of getting tossed like a bag of potatoes. Now that I can't go around pulling guard like a jackass, I just gotta step things up and stop being lazy. So, the question is: what do I do? Does anyone have any tips to improve this part of my game? What should I aim for? Which kind of throws and takedowns are more suited to each body type? Whatever tips and advice you can give me are going to be very appreciated. Thanks in advance.
