Judo uses the “moment of equilibrium” or breaking posture method for most of their throws. This means that you will work for grips, then utilize one of many throws that uses the grips you’ve got to break the balance and equilibrium of the opponent. This can be seen in the various hip throws employed in the sport. For instance, a judoka will get a grip behind the triceps with left hand, step in with right foot to center of opponent’s balance, dropping hips as he goes, then turn his right hip in and throw his right arm underneath the gripped arm of opponent, lifting his hips (and the opponent’s at the same time) and bending forward to throw them over the hip and shoulder. The balance is broken as the arm shoots upwards, lifting under the opponent’s own arm, and the hips are forced upwards, breaking friction with the mat, the wide base of the opponent, and their balance and causing momentum up and then forward with pulling motion. Nearly every throw in judo is based on this concept: your hips lower than theirs, your center of balance invades theirs, your torque, pull, or push gives momentum to their uprooted body. The few techniques that do not are generally based on dropping, like Seoi-nage, where your grip is more important aspect, since you’ll pull them down and foward, with your center of gravity much lower than theirs.
Wrestling utilizes a multitude of techniques based on a combination of three principles: underhooks, overhooks, leg captures. As a wrestler, the strongest position to throw from is one where you control both legs or the torso, the opponent has no defense, and your hips are lower than your opponents. The back suplex, double leg takedown and double underhook positions illustrate this technique in varying degrees, with the suplex being the most indefensable, to the double underhook being the least favorable double control position. Now, that being said, there are also neutral positions and reversal positions. A common neutral spoition is the over-underhook, where you have one arm underhooked and one overhooked. Both opponent’s have roughly the same chances of accomplishing a takedown, and both can block equally well, barring obvious experience differences. A common reversal position is Whizzer positioning on opponent’s underhook. From Whizzer, you can turn the opponent’s takedown try into your takedown by redirecting the force of their push.
