    dude I was gonna do an uchi mata thread

    I do it O Uchi (lifted thigh)

    preferably very much as a Te-waza as I( tend to have my hips outside and use the kusazhi and leg sweep

    Well think your dfinitions of the three may be a little off (or I'm reading them wrong.) I'm not trying to challenge you.

    Ko Uchimata: In a right-handed technique your leg attacks the lower part of Uke's left inner thigh.
    O Uchimata: Your leg attacks the middle of Uke's thigh. Usually lifting up along the inside of their far leg, and landing in the middle.
    Taka Uchimata: Tori's leg attacks Uke high on Uke's left inner thigh -- effectively reaping up the middle.

    Checkthe followingthread for videos of each of the three.

    Uchi-Mata Reaping Leg - JudoForum.com


    As for me, It's O-Uchimata all the time, every time.

    Taka Uchimata


    SOMEONE PLEASE EMBED THESE IN THIS THREAD FOR CONTEXT. THESE ARE PERFECT EXAMPLES OF THE THREE. If you disagree go over to Judoforum ad talk to the numerous 5th and 6th dans over there that agree with this.

    Once again, Judofarmer, I'm not arguing with you. I love anyone that brings Judo to his forum! :icon_chee:icon_chee

    I think the big mistake when doing this throw is people try to split the middle and hook the wrong leg (inside leg) when in actuality you have to hook the outside leg

    That video shows it perfect...

    ps. I suck at this throw!!

    I don't throw it. My Uchimata sucks rocks. Nice thread though, maybe it will get me to work on it...

    is anyone else here a double hopper or a switch hopper?

    like, not ken-ken, but when i do it in randori i usually have to plant, lift, then hop back and plant more, or i do this sweet super jump-in 180 switch leg scissor spring bob thing. and yes, that's the technical term

    i'm still trying to figure out where i like to reap at though. i usually don't need to reap that much since i more or less try and do a fucking airfall with my pull, but i've heard both schools of thought.

    unless they're sprawling, then it's usually ouchi-mata, or "ball sweep".

    i still like hane better :)

    I don't think I ever throw uchimata without it being by accident. I mean I will be trying for some kind of hip throw which os off or I miss and then I realize Uchi-mata is right there and then I take it.

    I find that when I hit a really good uchi-mata it goes staight up the middle. The thing is that I use more of my hip than leg and it feels effortless. I also find that when I do co uchi-mata it never feels as efforless or as clean. I know it is classified as ashi waza in nage no kata but I think that the hip plays a way bigger role in the way that I do this throw

    I usually get a tight kubinage style headlock then swing it up and ken-ken them until they fall and I land on top of them.

    Shorter guys my leg goes up more towards their torso and topples them, taller ones its more of a foot sweep style maneuver.

    Definatly an O-Uchimata type. When I do try to hit it.

    I prefer Harai-goshi or O-Guruma to Uchimata myself though. I seem to have better luck putting my leg across after the O Uchi Gari.

    the one in the vid i posted is the closest i could find for uchimata makikomi. truth be told I just throw that leg and sometimes its hani, hari or uchi makikomi depending on his correction.

    Taka Uchi mostly, Uchi mata is my favorite throw (it doesnt means im profficient with it after 1 and a half month of training, but i find it the most interesting)

    I just came back from practice, and tonight it was the first time that i threw someone with it in randori (randori in my school tends to be very competitive) It was with my last partner after trying to throw everyone with it and hitting the mat like a thousand times, but anyways, i feel very happy about it, all the drilling finally pays off.
