I once heard someone refer to Judo as “the art of hitting people with planets.” I also have a friend in Jujutsu who uses the line “the floor in the biggest fist I’ve got.” Both phrases are witty and communicate a valid point i.e. takedowns can cause impact just as strikes can. However, it’s worth remembering that sometimes the planet hits back.
This video shows some knockouts where takedowns have got wrong such that the person doing the takedown was knocked out by impact with the floor. The video is titled “Self-Inflicted Knockouts in MMA”, but if you watch closely you can see that it is often the grip or the motion of the person being thrown that makes the throwers head hit the floor; or at least prevents them moving their head to avoid it.
All the best,
