Thread: Sasae Tsurikomi Ashi

Yeh what I'm saying is that in uchikomi you need to start 'offset' so that you replicate the positioning which stems from tai sabaki and natural movement which creates the debana. Its just the same as for the O soto starting slightly off step and doing the chasse step to get yourself out to the side.
Especially as I'm an O soto merchant it works well because you have the fear and can get the reaction for a big Sasae.

My instructor has this extremely odd idea that STA must be done when uke's foot is planted and by pulling straight down. He's extremely insistent about this and doesn't seem to realize why tsurikomi is part of the throw's name. I really want to correct him on this, but with him being a sandan and me just a sankyu I don't think I'd be able to convince him when he criticizes a nidan in our club for doing the throw correctly and beautifully.

I guess it's a bit like the time I bought that shampoo with "no more tears" written on it. Let's face it there was no way a shampoo could ever deliver on such a promise.

Tonight, I discovered osoto gari->sasae tsurikomi ashi->seoi nage. Seems to work beautifully if the uke successfully gets their attacked foot over my block. Thoughts? Experiences?

Good post, this throw is one of the few i get in wrestling. Looking forward to trying out some of your combo suggestions."Boxing is the art of hitting an opponent from the furthest distance away, exposing the least amount of your body while getting into position to punch with maximum leverage and not getting hit."

spacing and positioning.
O soto gari and Okuri ashi barai and understand the fundamental principles that make Okuri work then, by all means have a bash and see you get on. You'll need to drill them a lot in uchikomi and nagekomi, before you can get them to work in randori, though.

I figure i'll be able to do them sometime in 2013, taking 1 day of Judo a week. Keep up the good articles please :).
