comment How should my 8-year-old defend against a leg trip (kosotogake) in BJJ?
@Dave yeah, its pretty much a kosotogake. It varies sometimes the quickly close the distance or grab the gi sleeve. the thrower usually stays standing

This is the classic bully take down. For example I put my left leg behind your right leg and push you over it. Thanks for the image library links.

@JohnP I'm not sure if I can still consider the cheapo kids puzzle mats after seeing them last night. The carpet in our living room has minimal padding and is more on the thin side to begin with. The takedowns I am talking about, for now, only include grabing your partners leg, turning your head in and taking them down or even the basic foot behind your oponent's leg trip.

I wonder if there is anything at Home Depot that would work like carpet padding. This is a thought I just had and will go check it out in the next couple of days.

LOL. I actually was contemplating that last night. I knew they were thin but didn't realize how thin they were until yesterday. But we do need to also practice takedowns so that's not going to work.

@MattChan I will keep that in mind as I begin to use this and other stack sites. I guess I was just hoping to get names of other websites that martial artists use to buy cheap equipment such as grappling mats. Or to get other alternatives for a grappling mat such as what Wayne suggests below--horse stall mats (at least to explore).
