Went for my first wrestling class and was paired with a female. When practicing drills (for example, pushing/ pulling each other, escaping from positions, turning her over on the floor) how hard should I go?

I feel like if I go 100% she won't be able to escape from anything and won't take me down. I let her "work" a few times by relaxing a bit and letting her get a headlock in etc

Is this good etiquette and I should do the same for guys? Or am I cheating them out of learning properly?

>When practicing drills (for example, pushing/ pulling each other, escaping from positions, turning her over on the floor) how hard should I go?
Enough to make the techniques work. If they are drilling something and doing it poorly, don't just let them get it, but don't resist with your full weight/strength. Getting someone to step with a collar tie is no big deal, but landing on someone with a double could end in a rib injury for the smaller person.
>Is this good etiquette and I should do the same for guys?
There's a right way to go about it. When I train with smaller/weaker people, I just try to focus on being technical and less on weight/strength. This applies to defense too — I will try to counter something if I catch a mistake, but I'm not going to use my full strength. This makes it productive for both training partners.

The point of any of this is to avoid injuring someone smaller than you, so just be mindful.

Okay, thank you. I'll keep that in mind. She was heavier and had a few years experience but I still wasn't sure about going all out or giving about 70-80%. I didn't want to "insult her"

Also didn't know where I could "grab her". Like what's the etiquette there. Was trying to keep it civil but grabbed her breast and stomach at one point trying to turn her over. I didn't want her to think I was some pervert. But I didn't apologize either as didn't want to make it more awkward. Just ignore it and carry on right?

Butt drag her, get right up in there like you're getting fitted for a ring size

Anonymous No. 196219

I typically scale my strength to match that of my practice partner, sometimes even less if the technical gap is big enough to warrant it, and rarely will I try to muscle my way through someone mogging me with technique in practice. It's a waste of access to live training partners if you just ragdoll them as if they were inanimate grappling dummies.

>Also didn't know where I could "grab her".
One of the things I like about grappling in the gi is not having to worry about this so much.
>But I didn't apologize either as didn't want to make it more awkward. Just ignore it and carry on right?
That's been my approach. I wish the classes were gender segregated but I understand why they're not. I had to wrestle a hot chick at a home meet in high school and it was awkward as hell for the half minute it took to win and walk off the mat, as well as for the anticipatory hour or so after weigh-ins leading up to the match.

Exactly. Judo's basically wrestling with handles that you can grab while wrestling (folkstyle, greco, freestyle) is what you can practice on mats in a competitive manner. But I sure as shit won't do certain moves on concrete/pavement. Greco-Roman would be the only one since their takedowns and throws are all upper body.

Do you know what judo needs? A return to its martial roots again. It's too much of a sport. Pre-WW2 judo actually had stuff like atemi-waza (striking), extensive joint-locks on the neck, spine, and legs, and other stuff that's been neglected.

The Marine Corps Martial Arts Program uses judo and says to grab the clothing (in this specific case for osoto-gari). The gi is a robust piece of training clothing that allows one to practice such techniques without constantly destroying garments; it was derived from period Japanese clothing for this purpose and makes more sense in a civilian setting than the Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform. Wrestling will be relevant for as long as men fight and jacket wrestling will be relevant for as long as men wear clothes (I will concede the latter case doesn't apply to your mother's bedroom).

This is just some bullshit people make up because they don't know the real answer
Making a pocket grip at the top of the sleeve then twisting it to lock it in is way more hazardous to your fingers than gripping inside the sleeve
The only reason you can't grip inside is the grip is too strong
That's why you can't hang on to the belt
That's why you can't wrap arms around the body
That's why you can't wrap the lapel around things

Just because you can demonstrate the throw in a kata setting doesn't mean you understand it well. The guy in pic related passed the pistol qualifications for his rank but I doubt anyone accuses him of understanding pistol shooting fundamentals well enough to teach them.

What has your training and competing looked like for the past two years? If you'd been putting in roughly the same level of work as a high school athlete without taking any significant breaks I'd expect you to have gotten your green belt at least half a year earlier unless there's something wrong with you or your approach to training. If you're just weekend warriorring it and showing up at local tournaments once or twice a year a green belt in two years is solid progress.

I'll try to find a balance. The thing is my Judo improved drastically, like something clicked once I started doing things on my own. My set of throws were never taught at all (ex. tenri grip uchi mata). Maybe I just have a shitty coach desu. Probably my own bias speaking, but I just cannot get over the fact that once I switched to my own game, my results have gotten way way better.
I get where you're coming from. But I'm just operating under the pretext that to get better at X variation of throw, I have to do that specific variation, provided I know the basics at least.
>Offside sleeve-grip tai otoshi
This is the specific variation. The reason I chose this is because I want something in my back pocket should my opponent grab my power hand. My clubmates do everything they can to deny my collar grip since all my game is based on this.
I want to do the specific variation to tie-in with my Judo system. If I were in a position to execute Tai-Otoshi, I would rather just do my main throws of Uchi Mata or Ashi Guruma.
I train 3x a week, which leads me to my other argument that because I don't train 6x a week like a varsity athlete, I must do all that I can to train the specific variation that works for me personally. Theres this brown belt in my club who is a god at tai otoshi, but when I ask him to do my specific variation, he can't do it any better than I can. The main point here is specificity training. Why master X before trying Y when you can do Y from the get-go? This is the same with uchi mata where I've been taught the traditional version of pulling them up and loading them on my hips vs the actual competition variant of pushing their head down that I had to learn from scratch.
My goal is just to get as good at winning as possible, so there may be conflicts of interest here at play. I do appreciate the wake up call l though.

You seem to be in kind of a weird spot where you want to have a hard focus on competitive sport judo while training like someone who casually practices judo in a setting where it's taught as a complete pedagogical system with competition as a training tool rather than a primary focus. Your instructor is likely operating under the assumption that your long term goal is to learn judo as a whole, which requires building a wide and deep foundation in the fundamentals, rather than to cultivate a handful of niche tricks for winning your next literally-who-belt competition. You should talk to your instructor about what you're doing and why: he might have a reason why it's not as good as improving your traditional tai-otoshi, he might tell you when in class to work on one versus the other, and he might help you refine your preferred variant if he agrees that it's something that will actually serve your goals in the medium to long term.

Judo education produces judo instructors and judo instructors need to understand the baseline from which the specialized variants deviate. The baseline variant is also often "cleaner" in terms of teaching underlying principles.

Anonymous No. 197315

I understand. Problem here is that sometimes these principles get conflated and passed down because it's just the way it is. Case in point, uchi mata. The "traditional" way is taught by pulling uke up to their toes and loading them up on your hip, reaping the far leg. However, when you watch a video of Mifune demonstrating it, it looks completely different: elbow up high and tori pulls uke downward, reaping the near leg. Interestingly enough this uchi mata that mifune does is exactly like how uchi mata specialists do it in competition today. The "traditional" uchi mata was actuall a training tool developed by japanese judokas to a) not hit your partner in the balls b) aim for the far leg so when uke circles to dodge, it hits their near leg, thus completing the throw.

Sounds tiring, purpose of a warm up is to really elevate body temperature, slow-start muscle contracts and increase heart rate so it doesn't spike during actual practice and cause blood pressure issues (supposedly). Half an hour is pretty gratuitous, an hour and a half is ridiculous.

Based, koshi guruma is one of my favorites. If you aim the hand that goes behind uke's head towards their armpit instead of perfectly perpendicular to their neck it's a bit gentler on his neck and also sets you up for a strong kesa gatame if you follow him to the mat.

Apparently, Osoto and Harai Goshi

>Three different but mainstream judo throwing techniques were used for this study. Likewise, biomechanical similarities and differences were found for each. Judo throws can be viewed as collisions between two bodies, therefore, impulse characteristics of uke's body were considered representative of collision magnitude or, in this case, throwing power. The osoto-gari and harai-goshi throws created the largest impulse onto uke's body, therefore both throws can be considered “power throws ”and likely well-suited for large and powerful individuals. The seoi-nage, on the other hand, created the smallest impulse and force onto uke. This throw was unique in that it maintained a large forward momentum on uke's body even after body contact. This indicated that this particular throw does not require size and strength from tori for better collision but rather shorter stature, speed, and skill to fit-in underneath the body of uke and roll them over their shoulder without compromising forward momentum.

Muay Thai doesn't really mesh with combat sambo that much. The stance is different and kicks are punished. Muay thai sweeps are good but limited compared to the options you have in sambo. If you want to do striking to complement combat sambo, something like sanda/sanshou would be better since it inherently mixes striking and throws. BJJ might improve your overall ground game, but the meta is different and it's not optimal if you have sambo in mind.

Careful, I said this in another Judo thread and a horde of armchair experts came out of the woodwork to give me viscious type lashings. Lol. This is why MMA is a thorn in so many traditional martial artists sides. This is true of pretty much any MA but especially the grappling styles. They like to pretend that they are so cerebral & complex but it's not. Once you practice enough you begin to just understand the mechanics of the body. It's like combat anatomy. No Judoka, well atleast no good one, has a move list in his head that they are running through, trying to decide which to use. They just understand the anatomical mechanics of the body in combination with physics, and exploit it. Once you understand that, all the different techniques cease to matter as they are trivial compared to that understanding. Sometimes I think a lot of martial arts instruction is intentionally/accidentally convoluted because if you taught those anatomical mecanics outright instead of all the different versions of roughly the same principle in action, you wouldn't be able to con people into paying for years. If getting a black belt takes multiple years, is it really hard to learn? Or do you have shitty teachers?

Very very wise post
Judo can be summed up as.. if you push someone, they push against you (usually) to maintain balance. Then you quickly pull them as they are pushing towards you so their momentum is added to your pull and they will lose balance. I did this for fun when I was a kid before I knew judo existed

The other principles are if you take out a point of balance (legs) with trips, and also if you act as a fulcrum point (hip toss) think of pushing someone back against a knee height wall. It doesn't matter if they are 60kg or 200kg. If you manage to push them just far enough for the wall to touch the back of their legs, they will fall backwards due to esoteric magic and physics

Same principles apply for wrestling. People say it's more brute force but I disagree. If you can't lift someone's leg up, then good luck off balancing them if they plant their weight

At multiple schools I've trained at the kyu belt promotions all include quizzes like this with the instructors often printing out study guides spelling out the minimum you're meant to know at each level.

I can teach a useful amount of judo to a normal adult in about three hours. I can do the same to a halfway athletic adult in less than an hour (one class). I'm sorry if someone scammed you with a "judo" McDojo but that's not how it's normally run.

Having done all three, wrestling and BJJ are safer for novices to fully practice than judo, which requires competent breakfalls to avoid concussions, broken wrists, etc.

>Says the fag talking about taking written and oral exams.
Make up your mind. Should students understand the underlying fundamentals and unifying principles or not? How are you supposed to test large groups of new students for a basic baseline of comprehension without asking them if they comprehend the baseline? A 1:1 student:instructor ratio might be ideal but I've only ever seen it at one school.
>Guess what dipshit, you got had by a Mcdojo.
My first exposure to judo, after years of scholastic wrestling, was a university program run by two red-white belt instructors (one a former Olympic coach) assisted by a cohort of black belts. Several other instructors I've had came from this program; in their smaller schools you were verbally quizzed, often informally. I also trained for a short while at one of the oldest dojos in the country, which gave out printed study guides and made book and internet/YouTube recommendations. I've visited some smaller schools in rural areas without having time to see too much of the process for new students there, but in my experience judo dojos uphold Dr. Kano's streamlined teaching principles.

Just relax and learn. Getting ragdolled can be highly instructive if you keep a level head about it, reflect on the lessons learned after the fact, and keep trying your best.
>I also wish they knew im brand new. And also who I can ask for advice/help
I perceive that to be the main value in a belt system. Instructors know how to sort large classes at a glance and newer students can identify advanced students and take the load off of the primary instructors. Everyone gets used to teaching what they know as they advance and you end up cultivating a very strong group of instructors over time.

>"we don't have ranks, we just wrestle" yes you fucking do
Absolutely. Natural in-team hierarchy aside, end-of-season tournament performance was taken very seriously. Some of the kids who wrestled at the higher levels got pic related tattooed and exposed that tattoo every chance they got.
>they just don't wear it on their uniform during practice
>the same way people do with belts
I would argue the primary utility of the belt is that it's worn during practice.

Question judo frens, who do you think understand a certain throw better:
>guy who can throws everyone in randori/shiai with it
>guy who can demonstrate it perfectly in kata/static
I know they aren't mutually exclusive, but i see it often. There was this guy who threw me and others with osoto the other day and he has "shitty" uchikomi form for it (toes not pointed, behind the neck grip, no upward pull only bent sideways). Yet someone else who was used as an example for the perfect osoto uchikomi has never thrown anyone with it. Thoughts?

Retarded take. Judo is sport, coaches prepare you as fast as possible

Sure bud, this is what sport coaches usually do - they slow your progress as much as possible so you will never compete. This is how sport works.

For their pupils they think have a shot at making them a bigger name in the business. The rest just pay their bills. And if they're any kind of noncompetitive instructor or non-full contact competition. You're, again, just paying bills & will be intentionally taught in the most asinine drawn out way possible.

You're speculating based on your experience with a rootless conman in a thread of people who actually train judo as an established discipline and sport. I'm sorry you had a bad experience outside the norm but it's foolish to assert everywhere else is like that.
>For their pupils they think have a shot at making them a bigger name in the business
I've seen schools get sincere compliments on the collective quality of their white and yellow belts. Instructor reputation isn't just about winning at the higher levels, it's about cultivating good students the entire way up.

There's zero fiscal incentive to do this. If you can teach students useful and interesting things faster they get more excited about what you're teaching and they'll want to keep giving you tuition money.

You’re retarded and coping because you’re too lazy to show up to class. Guaranteed, I’d put money on it.

Good. A black belt is a sign that you have significant knowledge of the sport. If you don’t know the sport you shouldn’t be permitted to test for your black belt. Fuck you, lazy faggot.

You might be able to argue that the first guy understands judo better and the second guy understands that specific throw better.

There is a reason why great coaches aren’t always great fighters and vice Versa. I know plenty of great fighters who could not coach to save their lives. One of them, specifically, has a lot of knowledge and I love training with him but he has had so many fucking concussions that he can barely talk and can never express what he’s trying to say accurately.

My point here is, understanding judo is kind of relative. It may seem like a great coach really gets judo while being completely unable to preform the skills of judo himself. Conversely, there are people who cannot explain judo at all but are naturally attuned to it. Ultimately, this is a worthless discussion. The end

Ushiro-Goshi, rear hip throw. It is a counter to Ogoshi.
