No Gi Judo Throw (Sasae Tsurikomi Ashi)
It's a common misconception that Judo throws only work against an opponent wearing a gi (or jacket). This isn't even close to accurate. I won't go so far as to say that any Judo throw could work without a gi (although I think that may be true with enough practice), but I will say that the majority of them will.
Some throws are actually more effective without a gi. A gi is used as much for defense when standing as it is for attacking. Remove the gi, and it becomes harder to defend against most throws.
Most throws executed without a gi, require better timing and kuzushi (off-balancing) than throws with a gi. So, the key is practice.
When I wrestled, I had a lot of success with Koshi-Guruma, O-Goshi, De Ashi Harai, Okuri Ashi Harai, and Sasae Tsurikomi Ashi. A fellow judoka I wrestled with had a very effective O Soto Gari. And these techniques were all effective against trained wrestlers, not some un-trained muscle head in a parking lot.
I thought some of you might like to see an excellent execution of a no gi Sasae Tsurikomi Ashi.

I've seen Judo throws work more then a couple times without a gi, including pride and UFC.
I think nowadays people don't think that anymore, if they do there is only one way to find out :new_vampv
Isn't that a wrestling match? If they don't train in judo then you cant really call it a Judo technique. Or can you?
Yes, it's a judo technique, not a wrestling technique.

You ever hurt a wrestler with a thow? For example in the .gif you posted you see the ukie reach for the ground to break his fall. First time I thew a girl in the Ju Jitsu class she screamed :5eek: it was great. She was not expecting it at all.
Anyone who grapples should have sasae tsuri komi ashi in there arsenal. It's one of my go-to throws because it's incredibly easy, it works well as a combination, it works well as a counter, it works going left or going right, and it has a high success rate.

.....and it requires less comittment than many other throws. Always a good thing, as far as I'm concerned.

It made getting the pin much easier.
Awesome, who is it in the gif? you?
Me? Hell no....I wish!
