I was talking about throws with a couple of my friends the other night and we were going over a few of our favorites. And then the question, “What is the most popular means of taking someone down?” was asked. We assumed a single leg, or double leg variations for wrestling, and possibly ippon seionage for judo.
Personally, I prefer Kata Guruma. It also happens to be my most effective throw in judo.
This last one is my most effective variation, only I keep one knee up as opposed to both down.
I find that most people don’t expect entry for kata from a righty to come in this manner.
