I mentioned this on a previous post but it wasn't discussed.
I have difficulty performing your standard shoulder/hip throws on fat people. Even when there is no resistance. I can't get a throw on my friend who's fat in bujinkan and when we were doing hip throws in jujitsu my partner was a chunky guy and the best I could do was make him kind of fall over next to me (but no lift). If the guy is normal or even athleticly built I can do it (including randori) but the fatties really wreck my technique! What happens is I can't get any lift and yes, I use my hip and legs and I don't muscle the technique.
Perhaps the good judoka/jujitsuka of this forum could comment. Is this just a universal difficulty which everyone has? Does the technique need to be changed? or do my throws just suck? What is your experience with fat people and throws?
Thanks in advance.
