There is a lot to get right to perform any judo throw. It’s vital to have good body posture, your feet need to be in the right place and timing must be spot on. If you fail on just one of these, it’s likely your technique will fail too. And all this needs to happen in a split-second. By drilling and repeating movements time and time again, we learn instinctively where our body should be positioned, and the more we drill, the better our technique becomes.
