Technical Training Week 2 (Jan 14, 2018)

Sankaku-Jime, the strangle with the legs.

Last week, for newaza we worked on sankaku-gatame (hold down from the triangle technique). This coming Sunday we will work on sankaku-jime (strangle). If there's time we will also work on the armlock from a sankaku position as well. For tachi-waza, we will work on ippon-osoto (or osoto-gari done from an ippon-seoi grip).

Cheng is the best exponent of ippon-osoto in competition today.

The ippon-osoto is the perfect complement to ippon-seoi-nage. Cheng Xunzhao (CHN) shocked the world by throwing three top contenders at the 2016 Rio Olympics with it and followed that up with a spectacular win the 2017 Paris Grand Slam with that exact same technique in the final. We will look at how he does his ippon-osoto.
