Wrestling operates on the premise that both competitors are very athletic and you are essentially forced to get into good shape in order to participate meaningfully. Judo (and its derivative BJJ) is designed to work for pretty much everyone; being in very good shape helps but you can still participate if you're old or a woman or whatever.

>Traditional nage-waza (throwing techniques) were taught in the following sequence: kumu (gripping), tsukuru (the entry and proper fitting of your body into position taken just before the movement required for completion of your throwing technique), kakeru (completing), and nageru (throwing).

>Hirano revolutionized the order to tsukuru, kumu, kakeru and nageru. This is the current European style Judo. This is a proven method to defeat bigger opponents, as demonstrated by Hirano's stunning success. Wilhelm Ruska (Holland) 192 cm, 115 kg, was his most accomplished student. Ruska was the world heavyweight champion in 1967 and 1971 and runner up in 1969 (open weight). Wilhelm was the dual gold medallist in heavy and open weight class at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Although you could also say the reason it is considered an Ashi Waza is that the technique *depends* on the use of feet to prevent the opponent from regaining balance.
Sasae (support) tsurikomi (pulling) ashi (foot), thus "the foot/leg that supports the throw".

Here's a better question, what was Kimura's fixation on Osoto?
>In May of 1935 Kimura fought Kenichiro Osawa at the 5th dan division championship. Kimura attacked with an Ouchigari to Osotogari combination. Osawa countered Kimura with such force that Kimura suffered a concussion.
>In his second match at the 5th dan championship he fought Kenshiro Abe. Abe was so skillful that Kimura felt as if he was fighting a shadow. Every throw he tried (Osoto, Seoi) had no effect at all.
>Kimura was extremely disappointed with his four losses in 1935. He considered quitting the sport, but through the advice and encouragement of his best friends Funeyama and Kai he began training with a new found determination. All through the nights he practiced against a tree to perfect his special Osotogari. After six months his waza was so sharp that a daily randori at Kodokan would result in 10 people with concussions. It was not unusual for his opponents to request “no osotogari” before practice.
>During the 20 minute practice Abe was thrown many times with Seoinage, Osotogari, and Ouchigari.
>In October 1935 Kimura won his first major title, the All-Japan Collegiate Championships. He won the tournament with Deashi Harai, Ude-garami, Osoto-otoshi, Osoto-gari, Ude-garami, and Kuzure-Kamishiho-gatame.
>His six wins were with Osotogari (three times), Ude-garami, Kuzure-Kamishiho-Gatame, and Ippon Seoinage.
>Kimura defeated his first two opponents here with Osotogari.
>Tashiro tried his kanibasami many times but with no effect. Kimura attacked with a powerful osotogari which injured Tashiro’s right shoulder.
>At the 1939 All Japan Championships Kimura won with Osoto-gari, Osoto-otoshi, Osoto-makikomi, and Tsuri-komi goshi. In the Semifinal round he defeated Ochi 5th dan with Osoto-otoshi.

>In the previous two matches Kimura had won by wazaris with Osotogari.
>Kimuras first 5 attempts of Osotogari were unsuccessful. Finally on the sixth try Kimura broke Hiroseis defences with a Osotogari to osotootoshi combination.
>Takahiko Ishikawa 5th dan was Kimura’s final round opponent. In the two previous meetings Kimura had won with Osotogari and Tsurikomi goshi for ippons.
>In the preliminary round Kimura defeated Toshiro Daigo, 5th dan (All Japan Champion 1951, 1954, current 9th dan, 179cm, 5’11”; 90kg, 198lbs) with Osoto-gari to Kuzure-kamishiho-gatame.
>During the fight, Kimura threw Gracie repeatedly with ippon-seoinage (one arm shoulder throw), osotogari (major outer reap), and haraigoshi (sweeping hip/loin).
>Kimura then took Gracie down with an osotogari followed by kuzure-kamishiho-gatame.

Anonymous No. 188967

Because the way he executed Osoto was lethal.

Kimura didn't do the way we learn it where in you step out to Uki's side, pull him to you and sweep in a motion that brings Uki's back and down. Instead, he did Osoto that involved literally blocking the knee.


He would enter going sideways, pulling Uki's head down to their balancing leg. Now, he would either sweep like in Gari or plant like in Otosohi.) The reason why this works so well is because Uki can't escape it the same way they can for the Osoto we do.

Uki can't bump forward and try to replant his foot because the power is just too intensive. He can't try to step back because then they would be right back into conventional osoto otoshi area. Worst of all, if Uki doesn't capitulate and fall, their knee is in such a horrible and compromising position they have no choice but to go down or else their risk snapping their knee. Masahiko's Osoto isn't even a unique or incredibly intricate technique, it's literally just the way Osoto used to be taught and still is across most of the Budo world.

i tried judo twice, the first time we were doing some ground work and this black belt did something to me when i was lying on the floor and my arm got caught between one of his/my limbs and basically forced the opposite way. luckily i lift weights i think thats the only reason it didnt snap in half. was a bit sore afterwards

the second time they had us doing forward and back rolls. Idk the last time you did a forward or back roll but for me it must have been when i was like 6 lmao. so i was not graceful at all. trying to roll backwards i basically injured my neck and it ruined the rest of the session for me.

I think after you start becoming confident in the movements you will be at less of a risk. i think as a new white belt you are most accident prone. if you do it, try to go to a beginners/fundamental class. its what i will do if i ever try it again. Theres something about it that just makes me want to do it, despite the possibility for injury.

I would say this, but I would call it's more confidence. Confident in your falls, confident in your body's ability to absorb damage and keep going, confidence in throwing and controlling opponents.

Both words work, but it's seriously just a lack of self preservation or selflessness. Just throwing yourself at the other guy knowing that if they throw you, you'll be able to land gracefully no matter what. But, in order to get to that point you have to actually fall and get hurt.

It's not too bad. The few significant injuries I've seen in years of practice were a dislocated knee and a head cut. Apart from that, most minor injuries I've seen were leg and shoulder related. And long time damage like CTE and stuff? Seems safe in that aspect to me, striking is much more dangerous when it comes to that. I've seen people in their 60s and 70s still practicing after several decades of judo and they were perfectly lucid. Anyways, you're not gonna get hurt for taking a couple judo classes so you might as well try it.
I've done both and sumo is definitely more brutal. Much more prone to receiving accidental headbutts and shoulder strikes than in judo, and getting slammed as well.

Anonymous No. 189698

This. Idk what's the average lifespan of professional judokas but there's plenty of GOATs who, unlike sumo wrestlers, lived well into their 90s despite grueling training. Definitely can't say the sport is absolutely safe but if you work out, stretch, approach ukemi as the single most important aspect of judo, don't go for the shit you're not ready for, and don't randori with shitheads, you'll most likely be perfectly fine.
It's one of the safest non-meme combat sports out there.

Anonymous No. 191137

sounds like a rather half-assed way to critique your comp performance if that's all the feedback your coach can give you

poor kuzushi would imply you're at least attempting throws, but they're failing because your opponent is not sufficiently off-balanced?

have you reviewed footage of your competition matches with your coach? what do your opponents throw you with, or how did they counter you? most importantly: are you winning the grip fight?

kuzushi isn't just the traditional pull-look-at-watch we do in uchi-komi, that part of off-balancing is already created by your throwing action. it's also what you do before executing your throw:
>get your grips and deny your opponent good grips
>move them around, yank their head down, push, pull
>off-balance with ashi-waza: sasae, hiza guruma, kouchi, de ashi
>execute throw when they are off-balance

>I do everything I think I'm supposed to (pull sleeve, punch down lapel, yank them really hard)
Think about why you're doing these things and consider if it's having the desired result; if not, explore why. You can do any or all of those and create zero kuzushi if done at the wrong moment; you have to time it correctly in accordance with your opponents movements.

The basic premise of a judo throw is that
>your opponent moves and you move with him (tai-sabaki),
>you help him move a bit further than he wanted to so he's off-balance (kuzushi),
>you trip him with some part of your body (tsukuri),
>and you help him along his journey to the floor (kake).
If you're just arbitrarily yanking on your opponent's gi without considering his movements you're not going to create kuzushi (someone who is uncommonly strong could overpower their opponent to create kuzushi but that's clearly not you).

Thanks Anon. I do think I'm just arbitrarily yanking and trying to force moves instead of reading my opponent more. I think that part of my problem is that I have a hard time reading my opponent's weak balance direction in the moment and only realize it afterwards. For example, here is Shintaro Higashi's ouchi gari system:

In a nutshell, it is:
>do ouchi gari on opponent if they're squared up
>do diagonal ouchi gari if opponent is standing naturally
>do osoto gari on the other leg if they retreat and lift the leg you're doing ouchi to
>do uchi mata if they push back into you
This covers almost every situation yet I still can't recognize these situations in the moment. My guess is that I need to drill these until they become muscle memory. The problem is my dojo just wants us to do randori randori randori but I honestly feel like I'd get better if I did positional drills for each of these 4 situations for example. But the senseis either have move of the week drills covering stuff I don't care about or they want us to randori and they tell me to stop the drills I'm practicing if I do try.

Re asking this since it was sort of answered, how the fuck do you fit into a throw without actually having that kuzushi from grips?

Anonymous No. 191515

If I had to speculate it would entail keeping your arms relaxed but grip firm while doing the footwork and body movement (tai-sabaki) and only changing up your grip when it's time to throw; basically, moving your hands after your feet in order to set the trap before pushing or pulling uke into it.

I'm thinking of picking up Judo and so far I've found 2 places that seem good.

One is physicaly larger and has more students, but only offers classes 2x per week. The other one felt a bit cramped and has a few pillars inside the mats that made me pretty uncomfortable to throw and get thrown around, but they offer classes 3x per week.

On a technical level they seemed more or less equal, with the pillar dojo maybe being a bit ahead. Are pillars huge safety hazards for judo on a practical everyday manner? During randori each pair could get a 3ish meters square they can stand in to try avoiding the pillars, but it still felt awkward having to practice while keeping them in mind during my trial class. Other place wouod be "safer" to train in, but only offers 2 weekly classes.

Do you guys have any experience with dojos that have obstacles like that and how much of an issue they end up being? They are padded to shoulder height, but still look like they would be nasty to hit during a throw.

Anonymous No. 191520

>Are pillars huge safety hazards for judo on a practical everyday manner

They can definitely be of concern, the Kodokan specifically mentions how the tatami should be kept free of obstacles. It's understandable if they are at the ends of the mat and are needed to support the building, but if you have a concrete pillar in the middle of the mat it's an issue. Even if they are padded, they're just an annoyance to move around. But hey, could be more dynamic.

How is the 3x a week class more 'ahead'? Do they teach better or have better instructors? Is the other class like a circuit trainer?

Drill your breakfalls at home every day, ideally more than once per day.

My younger brother used to do this when we did Judo. He was a naturally big and strong dude, great grips and he had a really solid tomoe/ yoko tomoe nage, to the point where he started yelling the name of the technique as he went for it.

Absolutely humiliating to get hit by, but funny as fuck to watch. I think he got a lot of people with it just because they were so focused on sparring and didn't expect to hear anyone but the sensei/ref yelling out random Japanese. He'd grip, yell "Toooomoe Nage!" like he was fucking charging it up, and people's faces would go blank like they were trying to figure out what he'd call them, and then they'd go flying through the air.

Is it bad that I hate Judo tournaments?

I've gone to two and did okay, but honest to God, I can not stand them.

The signing up, the weighing in, the keeping at a weight, the stressing about training intensity, the stressing about the day before and making sure you feel good, the drive out there because 90% of them are in some po dunk town in the middle of the woods, the FUCKING 7-hour average wait time before your match (seriously this shit is what kills it for me, the incredibly long wait before a match). Finally, when you actually get onto the mat with the guy you're going against, it usually lasts for about 20 to 30 seconds and one guy either gets something or somebody just gets injured.

The whole culture of competition Judo just makes me sick and I find no enjoyment from it whatsoever.

If you enjoy comp. Judo, more power to you and have fun, but I just can't get into it and much prefer the martial art itself and practicing it as much as I can for my own benefit.

Not very since teaching people to fall and keep their head tucked is priority one. Hell, a lot of Rugby and Football players take up Judo just to learn how to fall better.

I’ve been doing judo ten years, I had one bad bump to my head at one of my first tournaments. Enough to ring my bell, not enough to cause a concussion. My lesson learned from that is to practice ukemi and always be ready for it.

How much you are at risk of head injury is directly proportional to how prepared you are for falling and whether you not you do risky shit like trying to cartwheel out of throws before you have the agility to actually pull it off. Even then, American Olympic silver medalist Jason morris nearly broke his neck trying to do that so I generally reccommend new students don’t take the risk.

Get some instruction if you can because it helps to have someone spot and correct your form and it's easier to do the breakfall correctly if someone is throwing you in a helpful way. Absent that, do the drills in >>191682 and build up from there--once you get the hang of it sitting, squatting, and then standing you can start jumping into it or testing out harder surfaces and figuring out how to apply it to stairs and so forth. Judoka with instructors who get thrown regularly still do these drills and they help a lot, but you'll learn a lot faster with a better foundation if you go to judo class on top of it.

It's usually a written rule to have both. Blue came about specifically to differentiate opponents for scoring purposes, like how wrestlers will wear red or green anklets. White is the baseline traditional color, which is why it's sometimes acceptable at the novice level to not have a blue gi on hand at tournaments. If you have a blue gi it's assumed that it's at least your second gi (being a competition-specific style and not the all-purpose white gi pretty much everyone gets as their first gi) and you should wear the appropriate color for the match.

most bouncers know a little bit of wrestling or judo, as do cops. you want to be careful with the latter, as they may use IJF illegal techniques like shooting you with a gun, so be careful
good luck!

I did a competition at heavyweight and funny enough was only 2lbs over the cutoff for middle weight
the green belt I beat in the finals was salty as hell
I was a blue belt in blowjob jiujitsu at the time

Now I'm a brown belt in that but I look at the judo class and all the exercises and drilling they do and just kinda think the 15-20 minutes at the end they spend playing looks fun but fuck all that other donk they're doing

The sport is a method of studying judo, not the end goal of studying judo. If you're not learning the fundamentals well enough to teach judo you don't get a teacher's belt; feel free to compete in open belt divisions, however.

>ok and this is how you'll actually do it
>Out of all the judo quotes you're likely to hear that one is at the top
What I've encountered more often is instructors showing situational variations for a throw. There's almost never one way "how you'll actually do it" but a number of specialized deviations averaged around the baseline fundamentals. At more than one school I've seen a teaching format where the classical technique is taught, demonstrated, and practiced before the students get to work in with the black belts and learn how each black belt does it differently.
>These are not different techniques
They are different techniques for deploying similar tactics. Being able to concisely describe these is valuable when you are teaching students of variable physiologies. The Japanese terms are not only concise standardized descriptors but allow for international training with Japanese as the judo lingua franca--no matter the instructor's mother tongue, you understand what he means by "kata guruma."

This is exactly where the ecological approach fits in,
When you have 2 moving bodies there is an infinite amount of variance, You can ask 5 different blackbelts how to do an uchimata and all 5 of them will give you a different answer and will be able to make a convincing argument as to why the other 4 are wrong
And the worst offense about it is you might find a way that is working for you and then have some old man standing off to the side say no, stop doing the way that's working because that's wrong your Foot placement is turned 15° too much, your hand is 2 inches too high on the collar, And your thigh placement is too shallow relative to his knee
So stop doing it the wrong way even though it's working and start doing it the correct way, and if this way isn't working for you it's not because the other way was better it's because you are doing it wrong.
Ok and white belt, even though grappling has changed a lot in 30 years since the last time you did randori and youre 6 inches shorter than me I guess you're right

But as for the chokes now, I picked those for a reason as my example
Because when you demonstrate them uke is laying on his back and you are mounted on top of him
Funny enough you don't even need to take a collar grip to finish that "cross collar" choke, you can just rest your knuckles on the floor don't grab anything and simply do the wrist action and he will choke
So the grip you take is observably irrelevant to the technique since it doesn't even require a grip, so that's why I think it's strange the grip is how they've chosen to define the technique when it doesn't even need one
I think there are a lot of judo moves like that where they aren't actually distinct and they are basically the same move with personal preference on how to perform

Anonymous No. 195241

While I agree with most of this post none of it supports the notion that an instructor's rank should be granted to someone who refuses to learn the technical vocabulary to describe the fundamentals he can't perform.

Sometimes I visit my friend and we go hiking. I'm thinking of offering to teach him some basic judo whenever I'm in town. We don't have mats, so we'd be training outside. Should I just get a couple of grass-and-dirt colored BJJ gi jackets? If so, who sells ones that are nice enough to be worth buying but not so pricey as to mind an accelerated rate of stains, abrasions, and tears?

Official instructors need to get their lingo straight themselves though "you need to break kuzushi" makes no sense and I hear it all the time
They say Kuzushi like its the japanese word for balance, its not. It already means unbalance, you don't break his unbalance
They just parrot words all the time
So better yet instead of misusing grorious nihongo, just say "fuck with his balance"

Anyway neither here nor there, I think black belt level competitions should be open to anybody. Like hey I want to come do judo and I already have a decade if grappling experience so just put me in the advanced division ok?
No, you didn't learn the Japanese words so you can't play with us

Agreed, but I don't agree that the solution isn't to drop the educational standards.
>I think black belt level competitions should be open to anybody
There are open belt divisions for this. Competitive black belts want to work with each other and not waste time and energy on competition day with people who don't have a well-rounded understanding of judo.
>What ever happened to batsugun anyway? Why can't you just rank up by winning anymore
You can level up before 1st dan that way and after 1st dan that way but you're not likely to get that first black belt without learning the basic international curriculum you'll be expected to be able to teach.

If you can't do a neck bridge safely you're not in good grappling shape and need remedial attention. The instructor wouldn't need to take time to assess and correct the baseline fitness level if people would show up to class in shape.

The neck bridge, like the dead lift, has no benefit that cannot be achieved through other less risky exercises

Tips on fighting RvL? This is my RvR system:
>obtain inside-bicep grip on opponents dominant side with left hand, push into armpit as necessary
>get behind the neck grip with right hand
>clamp them down, force static position
>osoto (ono variant) or uchi mata
I do this with with fairly high success rate but the moment my opponent is a lefty this doesn't work as well. How do I translate this style to RvL?

Anonymous No. 196082

Learn left handed techniques and come in on their left. Seriously, if you can get down even just two left sided throws like Osoto or Tai you'll be leagues above many of your opponents for the simple fact that many people don't anticipate an ambidextrous player.

Anonymous No. 196083

I can do Kata Guruma from both sides, maybe I'll add Osoto, but it'll take a long time to develop. What about gripping? I'm uncomfortable with 50/50 grips hence why I use my RvR gripping (inside bicep, collar) as it really shuts down their offense.
What about RvL? The only one I know is when we both have each other's lapel with our dominant hand and just fishing for the sleeve grip in the typical Kenka yotsu fashion.

Anonymous No. 196088

Use the same bicep grip technique you use conventionally. Just mirror your techniques. I like to shoot for an under hook with my left arm and over hook with my right, to perform a left-sided Osoto or tai Otoshi I'll just throw my right under and my left over.
