Judo for BJJ


Several years ago my friend Aaron Little of Performance Edge (www.truthincombat.com) and I put together a DVD on the application of common judo throws for jiu-jitsu practitioners. The DVD is still available for sale at his site, but has made the rounds, both in part and whole, onto the internet. This is one portion of it that covers some applications of Kouchi Gari, the minor inner reap, in the jiu-jitsu context.

Renato Taveres black belt Jason Keaton was kind enough to be my uke for this instructional and the video was filmed at the old location of Four Seasons Martial Arts in Lexington, KY. I was a purple belt in jiu-jitsu and a black belt in judo at the time this video was filmed. Some of my takedown game has changed since then but all of the techniques are still very relevant.
