I actually have those kosen judo vids, plus another kosen judo vid. Was thinking of posting a review but don't know if I could say much as I can't understand what they are saying. If anyone is interested in "having a look at" those vids PM me and we can work something out.

Hehe, I tomoe naged a judo brown belt yesterday in sparring.

Haha. That is so cool. Might as well say grats to the noobs who "tap out" brown belts in BJJ too.
Think about it.

c'mon dont be so skeptical.
the amount of swearing on his part after the throw was impressive.

I was being cheeky. I'm willing to put A LOT of money on it being a fluke ;p
Not trying to take the happy away from getting a throw. I've tossed a guy 30kg's heavier than med with seoi nage, and it feels gooood when you get someone. But getting really GOOD at throwing people, and actually getting throws when you try them requires a whole lot of practice and work.

I t most definitely was a fluke, actually it was my first successful tomoe nage. We were both rather shocked.

Man, I think something in real danger of bastardizing judo is weak ippon.
An ippon should be for a hard, flat, clean landing. It shouldn't, by definition, be ippon if the guy bounces right back at you or rolls through the through, or pulls you into guard. If an ippon is the equivelent of a choke or tap out, it should do equivilent damage. My judo teacher understands this - others don't seem to.
There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

I happened to come across a one hour long clip labelled "Kyuzo Mifune - The Essence of Judo". If anyone is interested I could try and make it available.
