    I have been trying to work no gi upper body throws into my game lately... To be honest I can only confidently execute about 3. After graduating from college, if I stay in MD I might train at a judo club in addition to bjj.

    Any of you guys consistently train judo right now?

    I did it for 3 months and hated it. Did not like getting thrown.

    I think thats why you have to get the falling part down. I've had some bad experience from getting thrown as well (near concussion once)

    I did train Judo consistently but not so much now, it helped me alot. Both BJJ and judo feed into each other pretty well.

    Once you get your breakfalls down you are fine, the only time i truely thought i was going to get hurt was when a bigger guy would land on my ribs everytime he hit a big hip throw.

    /once i fractured a guys neck with a harai goshi but it didn't turn out too bad for him

    If you are going to train judo do it because you want to learn how to throw in the GI, if you go there with an attitude and psychologically discredit any throw that you don't think will work nogi then you are basically limiting yourself before you even hit the mat.

    Also judo imo has a very high learning curve, it will take a while before you start hitting throws consistently. I know it took me ages before i actually started throwing people and it was like a switch, it just came to me.

    i think if you train both concurrently you'll just naturally intergrate them anyway.

    over the years ive cross trained in judo with some people down in baltimore city, on frankford ave. Judo will make you more aware of throws coming at you, and make you very good at blocking them. No one has gotten any form of hip throw, or arm throw on me in years. You learn to keep a very solid base and balance, to avoid being thrown.

    If you and i get together sometime like you asked, we can work on some throws.

    *edit* i think the best thing i took away from it was feeling the other persons balance, and learning how/when to shift it, to pull off a throw, and then to take their space as you throw them.

    i can throw pretty well.. my wrestling coach was a state champ in judo and placed in a few national competitions.. so needless to say our team could throw pretty well.

    if you want to be brutal, as you throw the person over the hip, kick out your own feet, so you land on their side when you hit with all your weight. The japanese call it "Maki Komi" :bigthumb:

    This only is allowed in the ring. If you try to do it in a jiu jitsu tournament, well , i never mentioned it... ever :)
