Next step: Judo Combinations
Ramsgate judoka can now look forward to starting on learning judo combinations and earning their Advanced Judo certificates.
Tai otoshi combinations
When working on combinations it is a good idea to take your major waza and work around it.
For example, let’s take Tai Otoshi as our major waza.
First develop a combination that uses a set up throw into Tai Otoshi.
Ouchi Gari works very well as it creates the movement that opens your partner up for the Tai-otoshi perfectly.
Once you have that nailed, start developing follow up throws.
Use this if uke avoids or blocks your main waza.
There are lots you can choose from but we especially like Tai otoshi into Uchi mata.
Remember to wait for uke to step off your first technique and follow it up with the second.
