    I would like to perfect my yoko tomoe nage.

    I already have the masterclass book, and it has some interesting info.

    My coaches aren't big on this technique, so I'm looking for video instruction, any suggestion?

    Look up Koji Komoru's youtube account "Komlock" and one of his promotional vids has a really nice Y.T.N. example. I have a few more as well but have to wait until I get home to access, no Youtube at work...

    Also, go to Durangojudo.com and search for the video of Kashiwazaki sensei's seminar at their dojo. Lot's of incredible stuff both for throws and groundwork, but this guy's Tomoe Nage is the stuff of legend. He literally wrote the book on the subject.

    He makes them look so effortless, and can do them from seemingly anywhere. Also, even though none of it's in english, he very clearly shows some extremely important details of making the throw work.

    I teach it. Unfortunately I don't have any videos of me teaching, however.

    2:45 is where the Yoko Tomoe Nage Starts. This whole series is awesome by the way, 3 of them on youtube.



    Kodokan Summer teaching series 2010

    Part 1 - regular and yoko tomoe


    Part 2 - All yoko


    The Tomoe Nage master himself, Katsuhiko Kashiwazaki. Tomoe Nage starts about halfway through, but the whole thing is fantastic. I think the Seoi Nage counter / Submission transition would be especially good for the BJJ guys.

    (don't know how to emdbed from Vimeo)
    KASHIWAZAKI DIJÒN 08 on Vimeo

    Enjoy!
