I am just wondering how you contend with a fellow heavyweight. Especially in the takedown bracket. What are some low risk high reward moves? I am looking to get my standup game into better form. This is for grappling tournaments and so on. Any takedowns are welcome

If they are really husky. Head snap concepts work well.

Otherwise running the pipe or cutting the corner with doubles and singles work OK.

- Twist your opponent counter-clockwise, when he resists, twist him clockwise.
- Throw your opponent forward, when he resists, throw him backward.
- Drag your opponent's arm and run in circle. If he resists, throw him backward. If he yields, throw him forward.
- Lift your opponent up, when he resists, push him down.
- ...

If you want to take, you give first.

I'll second the above comments about singles, doubles, and head snaps. Also arm drags with a trip are your friend. I'm ~200 lbs so I sit between medium heavy and super heavy.
