Thanks to Matt D’Aquino of Beyond Grappling for this nice analysis. He covers the grips, the o-uchi attack to square up his opponent, and the finish.
I would add one thing: notice Ono’s standing leg during the osoto attack. Hop-hop-hop. First he hooks his right leg behind his opponent, and to finish the throw he does three little hops. In order to finish Ono’s left leg must be as close as possible to his opponent’s right leg. Some people call that a ken-ken osoto gari.
Enjoy! And check out Beyond Grappling youtube channel.
Take a look at this excellent video on judo combinations, featuring an all-female cast. Including slow motion demonstrations and contest footage.
Some of the combinations demonstrated include:
-De-ashi-barai to knee pick to yoko-shiho-gatame
-Sasae-tsurikomi-ashi to okuri-ashi-barai to kesa-gatame
-O-soto-gari to harai-goshi to juji-gatame
-Seoi-nage to tai-otoshi to yoko-shiho-gatame
And many more…
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.)
Good analysis by Matt D’Aquino at Beyond Grappling. Take a look! This is all about creating very small windows of opportunity and then capitalizing on them.
