Sacrifice throws or suicide throws, whatever you want to call them are very effective but also very dangerous if they don’t work out.
It’s called a sacrifice throw because you sacrifice a standing position for one on the ground. Judo has many of these throws as does jiu-jitsu. There can be few things worse than executing a sacrifice throw and failing. If you’re on the mats in your dojo or even in a Judo tournament it’s not so bad, heck even in the UFC if all goes wrong you can always tapout. But not on the street.
Imagine you go for the sacrifice throw but they don’t come with you to the ground. There you are, on the ground, with them standing over you, that’s bad, very bad.
Luckily we are not without options. The video below shows a sacrifice throw and a few options to save your bacon if all goes wrong.
