    randori problems

    I've noticed a couple things I'm doing consistently.

    The first is my knees are too stiff. I move around with my knees almost perfectly straight. Any time I need to get down ill bend my waist or move my feet really wide.

    The other problem (maybe related to the first one) is that for any forward throw I kind of skip the middle steps. I try to go straight from entry to finish. I'm basically jumping in butt first. So when I need close back to chest contact my torso is already down and away.

    Would love any tips on how to fix these

    If your knees are straight you probably aren't up on the balls of your feet when you need to be. You also should probably place your feet more carefully before you attempt a throw. Your probably aren't even watching where you put your feet.

    You might consider listening to your instructor, who has probably given you advice already.

    Uchikomis...lots and lots. Start slowly and precisely and pick up speed as you go.

    This +100000000.

    Another suggestion to practice on your own is to get a tire inner tube and secure it to something sturdy. This will also help you with your entries. I have one wrapped around my wave master to practice with.

    Knees not bent enough? Balls of Feet?

    I'll tell you what the problem is you guys are worrying about **** that's inconsequential.

    Just relax.

    Instructors making a big deal about trivial stuff like that are doing more harm than good.

    Probably multi-causal, going in but first is probably a combination of your opponents stiff arming and you not having enough of a kuzushi action/ gi control. Timing also is playing a big part, but there's not much you can do about that because it's an experience thing.

    What you need to do is get in lots and lots of quality uchikomi and even more importantly nagekomi. For the uchikomi I wouldn't concentrate so much on techniques, but rather on kuzushi drills.

    I like doing Uchikomi alone. Just doing the foot movement until it's as natural as walking. After that feels comfortable, then work on the Kuzushi. Right now you're trying to focus on too many things at once. Step here, pull here, bend there, etc etc.

    Y'know, there are times (ogoshi from some angles, for instance), where using a flying-butt-slam to close range can be useful in breaking your adversary's spirit. Just sayin'...

    Depending on how intimidating your ass is.
