I got ahold of Altersport and was able to buy 3DVDs of their seminars, including Roux, Katanishi and such. Plays on one of my computers but not the other so I haven't figured out the zone-play issues. I really wanna get the Katanishi material, the production is just gorgeous. I love the green Zebra mats...
I so dont feel like working now. Maybe I can sell my firstborn for some good mat-time ;-)
Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

I was going to post Katanishi too, I'm pleased I got beat at it. I think it's an awesome reminder about how we should use the hips. My teacher went to a couple seminars by that guy recently, and we are now drilling some nice dancey hip-turning moves. I thought it was quite useless until it came together in randori.

Baseball slide through the legs. I actually had a conversation with Royce Gracie about that technique. I just do it. Its not something I practice or try to do often.
Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

If you want to make the throws more effective in competition situation you should concentrate to the leverage and how you bend your knees more. Most of the time while you were throwing you stood very straight, you didnt bend your knees too much. Bending knees is crusial if you want to make the throw more dynamic and explosive. Go lower while executing kata-guruma. You should keep your back straight and bend your knees, not your back.

This is not for competition but for grading. I did see that i was a bit stiff and bending. I just grabbed Kodokan Judo and started doing throws down the list with no review.
Also to get under my uke is not hard since he is taller than me
