    Hi.
    I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to Judo, and I was wondering which throw you Judokas have the most luck with...

    Thanks

    There's not just one. It all depends on the build and preference of the individual.

    My common ones are uchimata, kouchigari, deashibarai and (drop) seoi-nage (off a lapel grip)

    if you are completely new to the stand up game, I think osoto-gari is pretty efficient and easy enough to pick up.. but jugogido is the man for this question ;-)

    one second you'll all get a kick out of this

    As of the time the list I'm searching for was created (mid-late 90's I think) the most ippons happen with

    1 Ucimata
    2 Seoi Nage
    3 Kata Guruma


    Lemme find the rest of the list.


    But obviously you could take a never utilized throw like Yama Arashi and make it a beast in comps. if you made that your goal. So the list has t be put in perspective. Just because Uchimata is number one, doesn't mean that's the throw you shold practice the most.

    JUDOGIDO has the best advice. Find your body type and skill set, and run with it from there.

    *Goes and drils Yama Arashi 250 times*

    Ahh here we go. A bit outdated. 1962-1971.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 piut 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, ahhhh I 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 th 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.

    My most used throws are tani otoshi, tai otoshi and o uchi gari. Not your typical collection of throws but they are the ones I have most success with. I'm only a rokyu (yellow) So these may change as I progress through judo.

    My most common varies alot but

    morote gari, ouchi gari, hiza guruma, haraigoshi, te guruma and tani otoshi

    I probably hit the last two most as I am a counter thrower

    God you would kill me. Style-wise you got me man. I like to go in for the one shot on kill. I bet you'd Tani Otoshi me all day, or te-guruma everytime I went for Osoto.


    Te-Guruma is my current project. Any advice or tips on how to get the best te-guruma?

    Being a newbie, you should focus first on seoinage, koshi guruma, osoto gari, and ouchi gari. Those four will help you the most especially in the beginning. Murote gari too if you learn it right. Tai otoshi, o goshi, uchi mata, deashi barai, sasae tsurikomi ashi, and others will come later.

    Great list, but I would replace koshi gurumawith O-Goshi.

    Koshi-guruma is rarely seen or used anymore and there's a lot of risk for neck injury.

    be too big for someone to throw on the first try :)

    I dunno about technicalk advice really, it is very much a power throw for me, and it suits my body as I am a frekkin gorila with short legs and long arms

    don't be afriad of stepping along way in between his legs IF and a big IF you have the leg properly raised,

    get your elbow tuckedtucked in good for a nice lift/push

    Either make the entry before grips have been properly attached, go in with a straight back and legs apart, if entry before grips I tend to push his arm in between our chests, if he have grip you gotta jerk and get your head in under

    I like to put my arm udner his knee, over or underdepends on his stance.

    If you have your outside foot outside of the other leg don't be afraid to use your thigh to lift aswell (this works especially well if you have arm under knee/leg

    I guess the proper way is to jsut grab his gi

    I know you are higher ranked then me (brown right?) but I would say

    Seonagi

    Osoto Gari

    O-goshi (he is most likely throwing other newbs this is easiuer to breakfall from as you have more control)

    De ashi barai (jumping drill to get timing, the person you are about to throw jumpos up and down you just need to time the sweep and stearing wheel motion


    Just because I wrote a post about te guruma jsut now I will say that to, an "easy" throw to control if you are throwing same weight or lighter dudes

    adding to the te guruma, heck I even like to do it if the arm is downbetween us, lets say he ties for a single, but then there isn't much of a lift

    Kouchi Makkikomi and Tani Otoshi are very high % moves.
