One of the best short videos I’ve seen on the topic of grip fighting
simple = sick!
Great introductory video about Judo by one of the greatest, sensei Neil Adams.
Having recently practiced no-gi Judo, I’m reminded that no-gi Judo can be used to sharpen a judoka’s technique, because without a gi to grip and pull on, focus becomes much more intense on good positioning, good kuzushi, good movement. Everybody should have no-gi in their curriculum. So, having said that, here’s a no-gi tai otoshi, taught by Rick Hawn:
amanda hatch 1st match
amanda hatch 2nd match
raymond’s 1st match
raymond’s 2nd match, vs phong ly
skye’s 1st match
skye’s 2nd match, fighting a lefty
skye’s 3rd match
This is not an endorsement for any particular gi manufacturer, just sharing a helpful video for when you decide to size and buy your next Judo gi.
This is an incredible drill, you have to watch it
