15 BASIC JUDO THROWS (3 of each Throw Demonstrated)



A throw is a martial arts term for a grappling technique that employs getting your opponent off-balance or lifting the opponent, and throwing them to the ground.  In Japanese martial arts it is referred to as nage-waza,  “throwing technique”. Throws usually involve a rotating motion, the practitioner performing the throw disconnects with the opponent, and ends balanced and on their feet as opposed to a Takedown where both combatants finish on the ground. Throws can however also be followed into a top position, in which case the person executing the throw does not disengage from the opponent. Certain throwing techniques called Sacrifice Throws (sutemi-waza, “sacrifice technique”) involve putting oneself in a potentially disadvantageous position, such as on the ground, in order to execute a throw.  In this Video You Will See 3 separate executions of the same throw so you will learn the throws from both sides, right & left.

Judo (meaning “gentle way”) is a modern martial art, combat and Olympic sport created in Japan in 1882 by Jigoro Kano . Its most prominent feature is its competitive element, where the objective is to either throw or takedown an opponent to the ground, immobilize or otherwise subdue an opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke. Strikes and thrusts by hands and feet as well as weapons defenses are a part of judo, but only in pre-arranged forms (kata,) and are not allowed in judo competition or free practice. A judo practitioner is called a judoka.
