Wrestling for BJJ: Lateral Drop Throw

Grappling Mastery: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & MMA Academy

The lateral drop is an effective wrestling throw that works well in BJJ.  It can be used to take down an opponent directly in side control, or Kesa Gatame (Judo).  In Freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling this takedown would normally score 3 points, however in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu all takedowns currently score only 2 points.  In either case the lateral drop lands you in a very dominant position!
