    Takedowns are usually distinguished from throws by the forward motion and target of advancement (typically the legs), the terms are used interchangeably for techniques. Takedowns are featured in all forms of wrestling and stand-up grappling.

    The single leg takedown is one of the simpler wrestling moves that has many variations. Typically you want to drop levels to shoot in after your opponents lead leg. Once you have the lead leg you want to pull it towards your chest and hug it tightly. The next step is key, you want to ‘cut the corner’ or turn at an angle to put your opponent off balance and slam him to the ground, hopefully getting side control or half guard.
