    Hey Dan,

    I would love to share some tips.

    In Judo there are three parts to a throw (takedown in bjj/wrestling).

    First break your opponents balance. Usually done with your grip.

    Second step in.

    Third Throw.

    All this sounds easy, but you have to make it work simultaneously for it to work well.

    Here are some Judo throws that I think work well for BJJ. They are low risk, meaning that they won't put you in to bad of a spot if you miss. (some throws can leave you open to chokes).

    I will say the English way and then the Japanese. The throws I like are mainly foot sweeps for BJJ. They are major outer reap, major inner reap. minor outer reap, and minor inner reap. I also like major hip toss, body drop, inner thigh throw, sweeping hip throw. The corresponding Japanese names are o soto gar, o uchi gari, ko soto gari, ko uchi gari, o goshi, tai otoshi, uchi mata, hari goshi. O means major in Japanese. Ko means minor. Uchi mata is won of the prettiest, best, and hardest (to an opponent) throws that there is.

    A lot of BJJ guys do that stiff arm, where they grab sleaves with the right hand and then grab the lapel with the left hand or vice versa. Then they hold you so it is hard to shoot in. I like to fake with my right foot to their left foot, like I am going to sweep, get them to move back and then attack their lead foot, or vice versa. This helps you shift their balance. Chaining o soto to o uchi (major outer to major inner) can really get them.

    Here are some videos:







    Dan hopefully some of this makes sense. If it doesn't pm me and I will give you my phone number. I think I make better sense in person/phone.

    Been training my Jits pretty hard. Think I am going to do the March 23 NAGA in St. Louis. Got a bunch of teamates going to Chicago this next weekend. I weight about 182 but would like to roll in the 168-169 weight division. I will be in the 1-3 year experience group. Plan on doing the gi and no gi division. Just gonna do it for the experience. Plus I am getting old and probably don't have to many horrahs in me.

    I have been doing a lot of cross fit training. Never really did any of that (unless you count basic training), but it getting me in really good shape.

    Anyone got any tricks to cut about thirteen pounds in 20 days? I was not a wrestler. I work out hard, but I don't eat very well, and I enjoy the occasional 1 (or 6) beers.

    Saturday night we had a fundraiser for people getting ready to go and compete (gas money). One of the purple belts and blue belts demonstrated high risk maneuvers (cartwheel sweeps, flying triangles, gi chokes where you roll over). It was fun trying them.

    Hey Miz, I've not been on here much for the past few weeks, so sorry for the slow response to your last post. Those throws are awesome, and after watching the videos you posted I asked the Judo black belt that trains at my place to run through them with me, just so I could have a go at them. I love them man, and they're nice little surprises to have in your arsenal.

    A few weeks ago I managed to pull off a (very messy-looking) Tai Otoshi on a guy in sparring from standing, and it was an awesome way of getting the takedown AND passing guard (I ended up straight in side control). Thanks a lot for that, man. I really enjoy the judo techniques and am thinking of trying to learn a few more, just because at the moment my size (being one of the smaller guys), double-legs can be quite hard to finish on a lot of dudes, and the throws and trips seem to work well for my body type.

    Awesome news about wanting to compete, man, good on you. I wish I could offer more advice on weight cutting, but I'm sure there's a few wrestlers on here that could help with that. Maybe see if you could get a video of your performance for us to check out? Good luck my man!

    Had a pretty awesome experience this past week at training. I went along on Thursday night expecting a normal training session, only to find it would be led by multiple-time world champion Fernando "Terere" Augusto Fernando "Tererê" Augusto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Ah man, what an awesome experience.

    We worked on passing from side control into mount, and setting up the kimura/armbar from side control. It was awesome to here some of his favourite little tricks and tips, and he was a real awesome guy (that famous smile is STRIKING in person - no homo). Just had to share, because it was a pretty awesome experience!

    There's a regional championships next weekend which a whole load of guys form my school are competing in which I'll be going along to. I really just want to get a feel for the competition, see how it all works, and so I'm better prepared for competing at the next regionals

    That guy you got to see has some bad ass credentials. In 2004 he competed in the heavy division and got second (only losing to Werdum by points). It is always cool when you get instruction from someone who is world class good.

    Man yesterday I was rolling with a buddy. I back mounted him and got a body triangle. He defended really well from my chokes. I stayed patient and he ended up belly down to the mat. I decided I would go back to having my back to the mat. I started to roll and I realized to late that my right foot/ankle was going to twist. I heard it pop and thought for sure I had really fucked it up, but fortunately it feels ok today (just minor soreness).

    I will definitely get some video of my competition when I do it.

    Here is a video I watched today. Looks like it would be bad ass to catch someone in this throw.

    One more day until the St. Louis NAGA. My ankle hurts, but I am going to tough it out. Only straight ankle locks in my white belt division are allowed. I will tap very quickly if I get caught in a right straight ankle lock.

    Unfortunately I haven't been watching what I eat or drink. I am in pretty good shape, but will have to just heart out some of it. This will be a good experience. They have another one in July, and I will be on summer break, so I can train more.

    Either way I will try to have some video to post.

    Good luck Miz, it'll be a great experience and one that I'm sure you'll learn a great deal from. Let us know how you get on. I had been training a whole load these past few months, but last week I tore a ligament in my knee.

    I'm waiting to see a specialist to see how badly torn it is, but it looks like its my ACL. Luckily I don't think it's a complete tear, so hopefully won't be out for too long, but all I want to do is train!

    Being in my early 20s, and not having been particularly sporty before starting BJJ, I had never really had any injuries before this one, and being quite flexible, I guess I kind of took my body for granted a bit. I know I don't have a major injury, but it's definitely made me see the importance of proper supplementation and diet when you're doing something so physical like BJJ/grappling.

    Can you recommend anything in particular that works for you to help maintain joints/bones? I take fish oil, and started taking glucosamine, but the GP (Doc) I went to see told me there's little evidence to suggest it actually does anything for your joints.

    Ps: How did the NAGA go Miz?

    Hey Dan, sorry to hear about the knee. I hurt my left knee a few years ago. I bought a cheap Mueller brace at Walmart. It protects it and gives me piece of mind. They say those Glucosamine/Condrotin (?) pills are good. If we could get Kidinside to come to this thread he would probably have an assload of suggestions (one of us should pm b/c I know he grapples as well). While your knee is still hurting I would suggest just to work on ground technique, because I always feel like the stand up is where you can hurt it.

    As for the NAGA:

    Great experience. I did not do particulary well. I went 1-3 overall. I weighed in at the 170-179 group. I did not cut weight beforehand, but showed up and weighed 180, so I ran around, pissed and dropped a pound.

    No Gi- I went up against a really tough guy. I was defending the whole time and almost got side control. Unfortunately I didn't have an underhook and he took my back and RNC'd me. This left me one and done and out of the bracket.

    In Gi my first match was against a four strip white belt with a scarry beard and just a really strong guy. I murdered him with side control, mount, and north south. He elbowed me and we had to stop to clean up my blood and put some gauze in. We started back and I road out the match in mount and won by points.

    My next match was against the eventual winner. He mounted me and I spent the next three - four minutes trying to get back to half guard and avoid submissions. He damn near choked me out, but I toughed it out. I momentarily retained guard, but got swept and arm barred.

    Unfortunately I had to go for the next match. My coach asked for a four minute break, but I was done. I did well in the match by getting side control and north south, but I tried to mount (really tired) and he got guard back and double arm barred my tired ass.

    I am glad I didn't have to roll against my teammate who was in the same bracket.

    It was a fun experience. We had two teammates win, and we all had fun. I learned that I need to train harder and lose some lbs for the next event in July. I got to meet Dan Hornbuckle and take a picture with him. He was really nice and said he had a championship bout in a few weeks in Japan. I also met Tyrone Woodley. I don't have any video tape, b/c it all happened so fast, and my family was not there. All in all it was a lot of fun.

    Good on ya miz! I respect the effort. I wish I had a spot to train BJJ around here. I think I would be good. I have outgrappled guys who have military training in grappling. I've never had a lesson aside from the tape I study. I'm in the gym all the time now. At 6'5 and with good strength I could still cut to damn near 170! I'm strong as hell, but I am becoming extremely fit. I would love to learn jits and compete. Maybe one day......

    First of, your doc saying there's "little evidence to support it" is absolute criminal negligence. You know why? Because IT'S A DIETARY SUPPLEMENT and unless he does immense blood, urine, stool and lymph samples to know the vast scope of your body's nutrient sustainability then he cannot speak on its efficacy WHATSOEVER.

    Secondly, what is happening with your knee? I may have missed it in this thread. Where does it hurt, how did it happen, etc? Oh and I hope you've been icing. Besides reducing the swelling and inflammation it would make it feel better. Psychological angle is important.
