All I have to say is, ARGH. It's a great throw but sometimes the guy just stiff arms you and hunches over so you can't get in. Real defensive like. I can normally nail it if someone doesn't play real defensively. I was looking at how Koga breaks his Ippon-Seoi Nage down and it seems to alleviate someone who likes to fight really defensively. Here's a video of Koga showing how he does it. YouTube - KOGA Anyone have any recommendations on how I can finish this throw? What sort of techniques do you use to set it up, when do you strike? I mostly do a left side ippon seoi nage, I don't drop. Any tips would be helpful.
