Great work on the mats yesterday! We want to also thank Scott Jones for coming in an training with us. An excellent technician, Scott is someone who can help make each of you improve tremendously.
We covered two throws required for blue belt, the morote seionage and osoto-gari. In addition, we learned some new sweep combinations from the guard and ended with several rounds of free training.
Below is a new video of Mike Swain, former judo Olympian and current U.S. Team Coach. Combinations are key to landing a successful throw, just as submissions come easiest when you combine attacks to confuse your opponent.
Redirection, disrupting your opponent's balance, and timing are keys to success. We'll post a training video of our practice in the next couple of days.
We'll see you all on the mat tomorrow night!
