    What are your favorite go-to throws that you like to use to take your opponent to the ground? I don't have time to train Judo full time (would love to), so I was wondering maybe which throws I could practice in my spare time.

    I always thought that sacrifice throws... tomoe nage, sumi-gaeshi, yoko otoshi, etc. were excellent setups for ground work. Here's an excellent example.

    you want something in roughly every direction, I take for granted that you atleast do some doubles and singles

    all directions are for the guy being throw
    Harai Goshi - forward hipp throw
    [​IMG]
    deashi Harai- sideways
    [​IMG]
    those two especially, they build a foundation, can be done from other grips especially haraigoshi and are great counters and parts of combos

    Tomoe-nage- forward, sacrifice throw

    any sacrifice throw really

    A bit outdated. 1962-1971. It's also a list for the All Japan High Shool Championships. So maybe it doesn't apply like I thought it would. But anyway:


    Before I put the list up: Uchimata, Seoinage (ippon or morote), and Kata Guruma are the top 3 most ippon scoring throws NOW... Among the top 10 now there's also: Harai Goshi, Osoto Gari, Tomoe Nage, Ouchi Gari, Kouchi Gari, andI forgot the rest. I don't remember the order after 1-3 either. Maybe someone can help.

    These are fom the days of old. The numbers are all Ippons.

    Uchimata .................. 342
    Seoinage .................. 206
    Osotogari ................. 176
    Yoko Shiho Gatame ......... 118
    Kuzure Kami Shiho Gatame .. 114
    O Uchi Gari ................ 88
    Harai Goshi ................ 78
    Kaeshi Waza ................ 72
    Tai Otoshi ................. 71
    Kami Shiho Gatame .......... 68
    Tsuri Komi Goshi ........... 64
    Okuri Eri Jime ............. 63
    Kesa Gatame ................ 63
    Ko Soto Gari ............... 53
    Harai Makikomi ............. 50
    Tate Shiho Gatame .......... 47
    Kuzure Kesa Gatame ......... 42
    Osoto Otoshi ............... 37
    Osoto Makikomi ............. 36
    Okuri Ashi Barai ........... 28
    Kuzure Yoko Shiho Gatame ... 28
    Jujigatame ................. 24
    Ko Soto Gake ............... 16
    Sukuinage .................. 15
    Ogoshi ..................... 13
    Ushiro Goshi ............... 12
    Sukashi Waza ............... 12
    Ushiro Kesa Gatame ......... 11
    Tomoenage .................. 11
    Morote Gari ................ 11
    Jujijime ................... 11
    Udegarami ................... 9
    Kata Guruma ................. 9
    De Ashi Barai ............... 9
    Sasae Tsuri Komi Ashi ....... 8
    Ude Hishigi Hiza Gatame ..... 7
    Kata Gatame ................. 7
    Wakagatame .................. 6
    Utsuri Goshi ................ 6
    Hadakajime .................. 6
    Katahajime .................. 5
    Uranage ..................... 2
    Tani Otoshi ................. 2
    Uki Goshi ................... 1
    Sankakujime ................. 1
    Kuchigi Taoshi .............. 1
    Harai Tsuri Komi Ashi ....... 1


    Amazing how Kata Guruma only scored 9 Ippons in 9 years. Watch any international competition now, and it's every other throw. I will say that once Europeans entered Judo, they changed the game the way the construction of the baseball forever changed that game.

    Bu it's still nice to see some things remain the same. Uchimata, Seoinage, Tai Otoshi, Harai Goshi, Osoto Gari are still top dogs nowadays.

    OMG this is the greatest list ever compiled. Thank you so much. I was going to say Uchi Mata or IPPON Seoi Nage (one armed version translates well to MMA and submission wrestling).

    They do work well but there is so much room for error, errors that leads to getting the back taken or dumped via single leg

    edit:nevermind saw it

    I think osoto gari is good (Hollihan's statistics support this). This and other throws were you don't have to turn are easier for me and I imagine they would be easier for you since you can't practice regularly. Foot sweeps are also nice, e.g., deashi barai and ouchi gari.

    My favorite combination is ippon seio nage to kouchi makikomi. It's just pretty.

    Koga (If this video doesn't make you want to train Judo, you're hopeless :icon_chee):

    Go to about 3:50. Bonus: At 3:14 he shows you a way to deal with stiff-armers.

    Our BJJ/Judo instructor teaches us this. And I have gotten really good at it. Then he told me if I ever entered a strict Judo comp I could never use it. Sad Panda I is.
