You know the saying: „Old school is the best school!“ And while that may not be true in every single case, it most certainly is the truth in the majority of them; including not just the ground game in BJJ, but stand up as well… Especially in regards to the Judo throws!
In this instance, Travis Stevens demonstrates and explains one of the best old school Judo counter throw techniques out there – an inside trip counter to Te Guruma (Sukui Nage).
This technique as well as Te Guruma are now banned in Judo.
In 2013 all leg grabbing techniques were banned in competition by IJF, Judo’s rulling body.
Their goal was to make Judo more dynamic and attractive, but by enforcing this change, many of Judo’s original techniques were lost forever.
