What are better Judo throws for those employing a lower, wrestling type stance opposed to the traditional upright Judo stance?

This is always frustrating. But, some throws still work. I like Tai Otoshi from this position--get them pushed back a bit, then when they step forward, do the technique.

Sumi Gaeshi and variants of Tomoe Nage. Or, in my native tongue, guard sweeps.

1. Drop Seionage
2. Yoko Tomoe nage
3. Sumi Gaeshi/Hikkomi Gaeshi
4. Ken Ken Uchi Mata
5. Tai Otoshi

In that order - In my opinion.................

Excellent. I'd have rank the Tai Otoshi a little higher myself but excellent none the less

I choose that order because that is the order I teach guys from other arts like submission grappling or bjj to start them off.............Taio is one of my tokui waza but I find it hard for some to wrap themselves around right off the bat. I have been able to send people back to thier home school and catch clubmates with drop and sumi after one class thus building confidence standing. I like to give yoko because its safe when the grappler sprawls hard. YIJ, BBAAMM

Given the above qualifiers I understand your order more. Totally Agreed.

I have always liked kata guruma or uchi makikomi. They have always worked in the past. IMHO.

I will try to put this question to the test next time on the mat. I don't see why 80% of the "typical" Judo throws could not be done from this position. It affords hara being lower than the opponents' and enhances balance. Hmmm......

Yoko Otoshi will do nicely. If it fails, you can go directly to the Dojime/Guard position and stay safe.
