Covering the takedown he was able to hit on Buchecha at ADCC, Xande begins behind his opponent from standing position with his arms wrapped around the waist, and his opponent bracing himself with his hands on the floor. With his head on one side of his opponent, Xande brings his far leg across and hooks his foot on the outside of the ankle. Next he simply falls back and rolls to the side, using his hook the same as he would for a classic hook sweep. Now he can leave his hook where it is, come up on his knee and finish in a leg drag position.

A newer standout competitor to the Black Belt division, Nick Schrock, shows his go to takedown in a time sensitive situation. After grabbing his collar and sleeve grips, Nick stays with good posture and keeps a stiff arm with his collar grip. He steps outside and turns his opponent, feinting the outside trip, but mainly is concerned about breaking his posture. When his opponent postures up, Nick steps across to the outside of the far leg, and turns in, dropping to his knees for the seoi nage. A key detail is that he raises his elbow high to help trap the arm for the throw.

With a simple duck under, Tye gets to Kade's back while standing and controls him with a body lock. He throws his right leg over Kade's leg and wraps it inside his calf to make a twister hook. Now he turns to face the opposite and throws his right arm over him, reaching over his back and hugging his body. Next Tye rolls over his right shoulder, taking Kade down with him, and stretches his hook leg out to open space for him to place his second hook and establish back control.

From standing, Kade grabs the cross collar and sleeve grips on Tye. For a traditional seoi nage, he would turn from the inside, however, in this variation he turns from the outside to avoid exposing his back. As he turns and steps in, he raises Tye's arm and places it on his shoulder. He drops to his knees and pulls down on the collar and sleeve. Because Tye's arm is across his body, he will have a very difficult time trying to take Kade's back. Now Kade leans forward and pulls Tye over his body to finish the takedown.

In the first method of breaking the collar grip, Travis is gripping the sleeve underneath and his other hand grabs the hand, palm to palm.

He rolls the wrist in and pushes the arm across his body as he leans back. The third way is to make a cat paw grip with his cross arm, roll his shoulder back, and punch the grip away from his body.

From 50/50 Judo, Travis wants to break his opponent's grip on his sleeve to free his hand. The first way he can do this is by pointing his thumb to his shoulder, rotating his elbow up and yanking his arm back. If this doesn't break the grip, Travis circles his hand to the outside and brings it back up on the inside to break the grip. The third way, again if the yanking doesn't work, Travis makes a C grip on top of the wrist, and pushes both arms down and away as he pulls his body back.
