In randori, or practice? Opponent same size or larger?

In randori, one option may be to push your opponent in the OPPOSITE direction you want them to go then pull when they resist. Timing is critical. Another option would be to try a different throw or combination of throws.

If you are much smaller than your opponent, it will be tougher to get them off balance, but the same principles apply.

Good luck.

Thanks for the help,but why is it harder for a smaller person to un-balance a large one. Since the smaller has low center of gravity and the larger persons higher.(im small 5,4) Take note that i dont have not taken judo classes before,therefore just use there principals inconjuction with shotokan.

Basic physics.
start with: Force = Mass X Acceleration

Small mass accelerated at given rate requires less force than large mass accelerated at same rate.


The idea is not to directly counter your opponent, but use their own force against them (i.e. when they push, you pull).

One of the things I liked about Judo when I was studying it in college was that there was nothing mystical about it - just basic physics. No "Chi", "Karma". or magic pressure point, but simply using physics against your opponent. (As a mechanical engineering student, this was very apealing [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG] ).

A good reference is http://www.judoinfo.com/
