What Will You Learn?
Shintaro Higashi is a 6th-degree Judo Red/White Belt as well as a BJJ Brown Belt. This unique blend of experience has allowed him to craft an easy to follow system that will give you a complete game plan while in the standing position. Low-Risk Judo Throws For BJJ looks to address the major differences of throwing between BJJ and Judo including grip fighting, footwork, and posture!
Posture is everything. Whether you are going in for a job interview or a BJJ match, where your head is in relation to the rest of your body is very important. In Judo an upright posture is most commonly observed. This lends itself well to the powerful and explosive throwing techniques that occur at high-level competition. BJJ on the other hand oftentimes takes a more lowered approach where the hips are typically far away from the opponent. This slight adjustment makes high amplitude throws very difficult.
Low Risk Judo Throws For BJJ is a 3-part series dedicated to addressing this problem. Shintaro looks to give you a proven method of applying your Judo techniques against an opponent who is in a lowered more defensive stance. He does this by giving you ways of off-balancing your opponent that will make them vulnerable for low-risk attacks. What’s even better is that EACH technique is designed to keep you in a low risk/high reward situation.
Every throw will have you either taking your opponent down to the mat or set you up for your next attack. The high amplitude turning throws of Judo, for example, can be ill-advised in a BJJ setting. Exposing your back to a submission specialist isn’t typically a winning strategy. To avoid this Shintaro employs a healthy mix of Judo classics like kouchi gari, ouchi gari, tomoe nage, and more. Learn how to bail out of a throw if it isn’t working well, and keep yourself in the match.
