This week with Prof. Henrique we will be learning about one of the fundamental techniques in judo - the Major outside trip - Osoto Gari. This throw has important self defense applications in addition to being used in sport competition.
This week's techniques are part of Week 4 of the Takedowns module with Sensei Henrique Machado.

Important points: Before Sensei Henrique enters into the throw, he fakes the opponent in the opposite direction to trigger a reaction. When the opponent withdraws from the pull, they place themselves in a position to be thrown backwards.
