Spotlight customer reviews:
Customer Rating: Summary: Well worth the price Comment: As mentioned, the book is much more than throws. If you want to throw someone you typically need to clinch...this can be tough if strikes are allowed, especially if your opponent has a reach advantage. This book covers a few striking methods to close the gap and get into the clinch.
I was happy to see a very good section on the guard and submissions from this position.
This book covers a large amount of "phases" of combat including standing at a distance, clinching, throwing, and ground work and does it all very well. It will be truly valued by the kickboxer who wants to close the gap to clinch/throw, by the grappler, and the mixed martial artist. Victory Belt has put out another quality product. Customer Rating: Summary: great Comment: im a judoka and this book is one of the best available. it reminds all judoka to stop relying on the gi. the techniques are completely different from anything ive ever see before. also ive never seen such detail in a martial arts book. you literally get 3 camera angles for most techniques. the only thing i would say is if you dont have any judo experience you'll problably have trouble with this book, this is not basic judo. Customer Rating: Summary: Victory Belt gets better and better Comment: Wow. I thought this would be all throws. There are throws, counter throws, a whole soi age seciton, a whle osoto gari section, Tai Otoshis, Harai Goshis, and Uchimatas galor from all kinds of setups andcounters. Tere are a handful of throws off of the Kimura hold. There are even some good old double and single leg takedowns. There are methods of clinching and even striking to get the clinch. There's a section on Judo pins. Mount, Side Control, Scarf, reverse scarf,and north-south all have their own sections on transitions and sumissions. There are a lot of unique Hayastan/Gokor style subs I have NEVER seen in 13 years of MA training. The book ends with Ground and Pound techniques.
If you want to fight like Karo, this IS the book for you!
