Big Judo Sasae Tsuri Komi Ashi

Hi Team - Promised a nice Wim Ruska Sasae video unfortunately couldn't find it again. Oh well this will do. Have a look and see how this big throw works.

Big Judo in the City

Another great Saturday training session. Kids were having a great time. Some of our beginners have moved up to the big kids class and we have more newbies.

The team teaching. Good young instructors and some old fat guy.  

A nice group of good well-behaved Judo kids,  Nice to see some of these kids starting to get Orange tags.

Getting ready for a scrap on the ground

But we still like to fight up top too

Ju Ji Gatame Technical Points

At the Police class we have been studying Ju Ji Gatame (side arm bar).

A nice demo by Ronda Rousey.

Funny her technical points are the same as what Ben hammers.

Look at her body position:

  • Baz's thumb pointing at the ceiling
  • Legs together - squeezing the arm between the legs 
  • See she sits up chest close then pulls the arm back with her whole body not just her arms
