These guys are dropping like they're shot

A few months ago I posted this great interview that I did with Dave Camarillo, author of Guerrilla Jiu-Jitsu: Revolutionizing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Judo and BJJ black belt. Here is a video I came across of his brother Dan, also a Judo and BJJ black belt. Check out the wonderful skill, particularly his fabulous kosotogari or deashibarai (whatever you want to call it). He demonstrates it from a leg twitch a time or two in the beginning of the film and later demonstrates it straight off the first touch. Opponents are hitting the ground as if they were shot!

  1. Kosoto or deashi? Yeah, they definitely blend in together. I've picked up on this myself. My sasae can become kosoto easily if I need it to be. Sometimes the extra leverage helps. And the timing is the same.

    So I'm picking up on why the gokyo is constructed the way it is -- the order makes some techniques easier to learn.

    Dan is great player. this is one of my favorite clips.
