SAY YOU, SAY ME. SEOI NAGE (IN THREE STEPS).
Drilling judo throws is a good place to start. Check out a very clean, step-by-step approach to drop seoi nage (背負投) from Brad Court, head coach at Paramount BJJ, Downingtown, PA (a Team Lloyd Irvin Training Center). Brad's "thrown" in some good tweaks to make this traditional Judo throw more effective for the BJJ competitor (complete with a transition to knee on belly position). A throw like this is, in many ways, harder to get in BJJ competition, since there is a strong likelihood that your opponent will try and pull guard (rather than play for takedown). Still, if you have the timing and technique down, I'm sure it can be effective.
Practice, practice ... practice.
