Throws - Hand Placement.

Postby rne02 » Fri Mar 30, 2012 1:10 pm | #1

My good lady bought me this for Xmas
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Japans-Ultimate-Martial-Art-ebook/dp/B006TKIAZC/ref=sr_1_sc_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1333108020&sr=8-2-spell
a very good read I would recommend it.  

Whilst reading it I noticed a small details which has improved a couple of my throws immensely.  When I was initially taught Major Hip and Sweeping, I was taught to put my right arm around Uke's waist.  This meant I  only had my left arm to use to draw them.  I have always found this a little difficult.

However, in this book the right hand is placed up the back, with hand finishing between shoulder blades.  I found last night after a couple of trials that with my hand here I could push Uke with my right hand, as I pull with the left, and it was much easier to draw them forward onto their toes ready for the throw.  You can grab onto the GI, or just push on the back.

Not sure if other people are already doing it this way anyway?
If you can't do it with a fag or a shot glass in your other hand, it's not a proper judo hold.

yep. hip throws only work properly if you have one arm driving, one arm pulling, and the hip as a pivot. You can also swap your hands and push the head. But that is a bit mean.

Yup. Only hip throw I place hand on waist is uki goshi because its the hip I want to move.

One could always draw with the left hand, pivot with the hip and right hand, and use the right leg as the pushing component, couldn't one? ;-)

Yep - but add to that a driving right hand and it's a corker! :D

unless uke steps around and counters in which case my "driving" momentum works beautifully in his/her favour  ;-)

I've been taught both ways...generally I think the arm between shoulder blades or straight up and driving around with the throw is my preference.
