Training 2015/07/10 #027 -- koshi nage; north-south transition

Another fun day on the mats. Warm ups were good but my back is still bothering me a little bit. Rolling was also pretty good. Certain moves that I could never find are just there now. The d'arce just keeps appearing... which is good.

We also reviewed a few things from the syllabus:

Koshi Nage (hip throw) Double wrist grab on top, into upright kimura

This throw is actually quite nasty and I have an impressive bruise on the inside of one of my knees to prove it! Basically, it's a type of o goshi after deploying a "y" grip break.

  • Your partner does a double wrist grab.
  • Use a double y grip break to control their wrists from the bottom.
  • Step in and across with your back foot (as with o goshi)
  • Bring one of their arms over your head and the other across your belly. For example, if you stepped forward with your right foot, you want to bring your right arm over your head and your left arm across your belly. Think of it like setting up a fireman's carry.
  • Step in with your other foot and keep it close. This is really just an o goshi. Step in deep for the hip throw.
  • Pop your hip
The nasty part is of this throw comes from your control of both of their wrists. It is very difficult to effectively break fall. If executing this throw on an opponent, you probably want to control both wrists. With a partner, give up your grip on the top arm so they can effectively break fall.

In drilling this move, I realized that the foot work is crucial... but when is it not crucial?

Side control to North South into upgright kimura finish

This move is a transition to north-south.

  • Start in a tight side control. Remember to keep your cross facing hand facing down towards the mat. 
  • Control their near side hip with your hip. You really don't want to leave any room. 
  • Transition from the cross face to a far-side control.
  • Slide your hand under their far armpit so you can start to isolate that arm.
  • Transition around their head, stay heavy
  • Keep isolating that far arm so that they start to roll over onto their belly
  • Apply the kimura. Ideally, you sit on their head, pin the other arm under your knee, etc.
A number of other options emerged while drilling this move. For example, you can turn back the other way to get the paper cutter. Or, if you set it up from kesa gatame, you can probably get some sort of d'arce or head-and-arm.
