Last week we had the chance to practice some new take downs. Each technique we could see had some characteristics in common, first one they were executed with one leg to support our weight (some ocassions you can put both legs on the ground to throw) and the second it's you didn't have to spin (longitudinal axis). Summarizing:
- One support leg
- No spin
- O Soto Gari: Out and cross leg
- O Uchi Gari: In and opposite leg
- Ko Uchi Gake: In and cross leg
- Ko Soto Gake: Out and opposite leg
After clarify these points, I woul like you to see some videos os these great techniques so you can have a wider idea about how they can be executed.
O SOTO GARI: Out and cross leg and O UCHI GARI: In and opposite legI'm putting both together because the next video is starred by Teddy Riner (5 times World Champion). This amazing heavyweight is a good example of how to use your legs to throw your opponents.
In this compilation you will see not only this throws, hava a look and let´s see if you are capable to recognise which ones are those we trained last week :)
