    As a larger guy, I would suggest trying a Ko-uchi-gari, an O-goshi or Hane-Goshi if those throws are at your level in Judo. The best option would probably be asking the instructor or higher belts for techniques against a 'propping' opponent

    Hey thanks for the throw suggestions, I will try them next time. I'm going to try matching up with the shorter heavier guys to practice on that body type.

    Interesting choice of throws there, champ.

    You do realize that he said the dude was leaning down really low and back, right? Ko Uchi MIGHT work, but its a lot easier if uke's moving towards you. O Uchi works a lot better because you step inside, so if they were to be leaning back it would just make the throw stronger.

    And if you were to try Hane or O Goshi on a guy already posting down and back, all you'd usually succeed in doing is mashing your ass uncomfortably against uke's penis. And then you'd probably get countered really really hard.



    PS: O Goshi is a white belt throw. Probably at least his level.

    I'm Jujutsu so our throws are in different orders
    My bad, I thought he meant just dropping his weight down, not down and back.

    I know it's small consolation, but I just re-read Kano's "Mind Over Muscle":

    "The reason for the kinds of abuses that have arisen today is that people have forgotten that randori practice means fighting in earnest. If one fights in earnest, a stance in which you lower your hips, spread your legs, and tilt your head forward is extremely disadvantageous. Both your face and your chest are vulnerable to your opponent's atemi. .... Atemi is not used in everyday randori practice ... but you must nevertheless practice with the expectation that your oppoent may attack using atemi at any time."

    Jigo hantai-basic defensive posture ie horse stance

    Wrist lock throws please try one. Please. Please.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    I've had some success with kosoto gake and ouchi gake in similar situations with bigger guys, especially if they're new and like to stick their ass out.

    Edit: You're going to need to attack in combination though, otherwise it'll be like running into a brick wall.

    At times I have serious misgivings about the knowledge of Judo by some of the members of this site.

    Please, if you are suggesting hane-goshi to a beginner, stfu.
