Here you will discover judo techniques performed by three different nationalities of judoka, experts in three different nage-waza (Throwing techniques) techniques.
Did you know that the Kodokan, where modern judo now resides, has divided the nage-waza family into sutemi-waza and tachi-waza, the latter being devided into 3 different groups: hand/arm techniques (te-waza), hip techniques (koshi-waza) and leg techniques (ashi-waza).
Tachi-waza are standing techniques and include throws executed from a standing position.
Te-waza is the classification for 16 throwing techniques in which the use of the hands plays a central role. Koshi-waza is the classification for 10 throwing techniques in which the use of the waist and hips is at the centre of the execution. Ashi-waza is the classification for 21 throwing techniques in which the use of the feet and/or legs is most important.
Don’t forget that each one of the judo techniques that we present can be done on the left side and also on the right side.
