Here's a video clip showing a Judo transition in a no Gi environment. This is from the 2002 Shidokan World Open. This is the Semi-finals with Matee Jedeepitak. The throw is Osoto Gari (Outer Reap) and the submission is Ude Gatamae (Straight Arm Lock). I prefer to use and under hook when there is no Gi. With the sweat factor I control the wrist (at the glove) on the arm lock. In future videos I will show more Judo style take downs without the use of gloving and give you my 2 cents on how I apply them.
