Ashi-waza masterclass with Nobuhisa Hagiwara

There are zillions of judo tutorials out there for many different aspects of judo, featuring everyone from Olympic champions to… those with less distinguished credentials. Most of them are made with someone’s phone. Here is a rare judo video that is shot beautifully, with good lighting and sound, and also features excellent technical instruction.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Kaizen, kaizen!!

(Ashi means foot or leg in Japanese, and waza means technique. Ashi-waza refers to the broad category of throwing techniques where the action of the foot or leg is primary.)
