1- HIP THROW “O-GOSH”: The O-Goshi hip throw is the first takedown you’ll learn in this program. In this technique, the fulcrum is your hips shooting across their hipline, creating a perfect obstacle to hurdle your opponent over. Focus on a deep entry of the hip combined with a strong action of the sleeve pull and under hook belt grip.
2- HEAD LOCK TAKEDOWN “KOSHI GURUMA”: The Koshi-Guruma Headlock takedown is an excellent fundamental forward throwing takedown with a similar throwing mechanism as the previous O-Goshi. It is known for you to control the head to pull the opponent into a bent-over position, making your opponent susceptible to a basic hip throw.
3- “OSOTO GARI” TAKEDOWN: The Osoto Gari takedown or Outside Major Leg Sweep is your first fundamental foot sweep, though your focal point is off balancing your opponent and hip hip forward driving contact as you enter the takedown. Keep your partner’s arm once he falls to help break his fall and later, set up an armbar.
