Excellent Leo! With the exception of Olympic Wrestling, you won't find a better take down art than Judo. Judo throws and their setups are head and shoulders above any other sort of throwing I've encountered in martial arts (even Aikido of JuJutsu).

Sounds like you made the right choice with Judo. Keep it up.

Glad you are enjoying Judo Dobbersky! smile The break falls will get easier with practice.

Today we did a review of O Goshi and Osoto Gari. My instructor said that my O Goshi has improved quickly (probably due to my Jujutsu training a few years ago) and he remarked that it seems like my technique is very good for Osoto Gari. It's definitely my favourite throw so far. smile

I also did my first correct Tai Otoshi but I'm finding it difficult to get my leg out quickly enough. I guess that will improve with practice.

We also covered the pins again and my instructor had no comment about them so I guess I did them correctly.

He suggested that I start practicing the movements of the throws at home (kind of like shadow boxing) so I'll be doing 20 of each throw every day.

Good work Leo and Ken!

Leo, get some resistance bands for home training. They are great for practicing Uchi Komi and working up a sweat. Below are some examples of drills you can do:

Yep Judoinfo is great. There's a good reason it's the first sticky on the FA Judo/Ju Jutsu forum!

Today was just review and back to the basics with Osoto-Gari technique. I need to ensure that my foot touches the ground when I do the sweep and that I follow through.

I did my first left handed Osoto-Gari today and that was a bit strange at first. I've definitely got a lot of work to get it right on my left side.

My 2nd lesson tonight yeah!!!

Been reading "Teach Yourself Judo" Too.

I also got "Bruce Tegner's Complete book of Judo" amongst a few other Judo Books from Amazon, I also got a BJJ book which is similar to a BJJ Syllabus book by 1 of the Gracie family.

I also have "Judo for MMA" by some UFC fighter (can't remember his name right now)

If you guys want to use resistance bands at home to work on your Uchi Komi and help your mat fitness, check out a book called "Championship Judo" by Mike Swain. He has a whole photographed section on resistance band excercises for Judo. Mr Swain was a former world Judo Champion too, there is a lot of good information in the book besides the resistance band stuff.

I've been reading Best Judo. It really helps with getting the technique right and the tips in the book are useful, especially for kuzushi. I totally recommend it for beginners.
