Rhadi and Taraje passing around sumigaeshi

Taking a short break from my ongoing reviews of Rory Miller's Meditations on Violence, here are some great newaza training sessions with Olympians Rhadi Ferguson and TarajeWilliams-Murray training a guard pass from a sumigaeshi-like position.  It's cool to see Olympians drilling some of what seems like pretty low-level material, but in an advanced manner.  I learned a lot from this trio of videos and enjoyed them a lot.
You can get on Rhadi's email list at, and I recommend that you do because you get a ton of high-quality training hints for free. Sometimes it even seems like Rhadi is "giving away the house" by sending out all this info for free, but There is so much knowledge lying under this thin crust that youget for free, that Rhadi still has a lot of knowledge to sell (for a reasonable price, I might add.)
It's also nice to see Olympians training in the living room surrounded by couches just like the rest of us mortals. 


  1. Only halfway through the second clip, but I just wanted to say thanks for posting these. Easily some of the coolest Judo material I've seen in a while, and you're right, there's something about the couches and "World Hold On" that brings this down to earth. ;-)

  2. I love the makeshift Great Vids.
