Wednesday 29/7/15 Session (Tai-Otoshi)

It's time to start preparing the players for grading. On Wed we practiced Tai-Otoshi, a classic judo technique that is well-known though not that often seen in competition.

Getting players to adopt the right leg positioning is often the most difficult part. Many players tend to insert their hips too deeply.

We believe in using crash pads. If you want the players to throw repeatedly, you need crash pads or it will be too painful for them.

To get them to learn to pull hard, we have them doing 3-person uchikomi. Much more relevant doing this than pure weight training.
