Re: What technique would you apply to neutralize Brazilian Jujitsu attacker

Saying BJJers are not good at takedowns..as compared to what....an Aikidoka or a novice? it is relative for sure!

Alot of BJJers are pretty decent at takedowns. Many are former wrestlers, and many are judoka. Although I agree that many BJJ schools neglect to practice takedowns. What is more important is not that a BJJer is technically good at takedowns, but they are pretty darn good at luring you in to a clinch, getting a hold of you and then getting you down to the ground. Sprawling is a good thing to practice and agree it is very useful.
