O-Soto-Gari

O-Soto-Gari

 

O-Soto-Gari as a defence against an attack to the throat (strangulation from the front) performed by Anton Zwijsen. Subscribe to this channel, there’s much more to come! Checkout the other videos as well. O-Soto-Gari can be translated as “major outer reap”. This technique is very popular in Judo. In this video the O-Soto-Gari is used as a self-defence technique. In Jiu-Jitsu this throw appears in the E-Bo-No-Kata. For self defence purposes it is usefel (as shown in this video) to execute a handpalm strike (teisho-uchi) before performing the throw. By doing this strike, your opponent will be out of balance. This is the difference between the Judo version and the Jiu-Jitsu (practically applied) version of the same technique. In Judo the technique is done without prior attack. It is interesting to look at the similarity of the o-soto-gari with Irimi-Nage (watch here: https://youtu.be/1IHSc6YFpes ) as seen in Aikido, leave your thoughts about this in the comment section! This video was filmed by Marc Smeets from Ethos Films. The Uke in this video is Angelo Postma. Special thanks to Robbert de Moor from Sportcentrum Delta for the use of the dojo.
