Our first video teaches us to connect 2 techniques in combination: the Inside trip (Ouchi-gari) and an ankle pick. The best judo is based on Action Reaction, and Prof. Henrique illustrates this in today's lesson.

Note that Prof. Henrique's hand on the opponent's lapel plays a crucial role in unbalancing the opponent. It is not only the ankle pick hand that is crucial to apply the throw.
Our 2nd video shows a Takedown drill that we can use to perfect our footwork for a fast entry. Our entries must be lightning quick in live training, and this type of drill is a central part of judo training.
Please pay attention to how Prof. Henrique gets the opponent moving to create the specific distance, stance, and momentum he needs for each particular technique.
