Judo Introduction by Mark Huizinga: Seoi Nage [English Subtitles]


I will now show you the shoulder throw. With the shoulder throw it is the intention that I throw my oppoenent over my shoulder onto the mat There are several variations Japanese judokoas for example, often perform it like this: on the knees deep under the opponent and throw him over! What I myself do often is grab a sleeve, one sleeve, jump infront and perform a shoulder throw, making him fall flat on his back. This is how I scored the fasted Olympic Ippon ever in Atlanta, where I threw Canadian Gill in 5 seconds. Another variant is this one. Also on the knees I am only grabbin one side… …jump in and twist myself over, making him fall flat on his back. This is how Eelco van der Geest, during the 2004 Olympics performed a shoulder throw against the great Japanese champion Inoue.

  1. I heard words like Motherfucker and Alistair Overeem??? is that right or am I just hearing inter-language homonyms?

  2. @edbiology It is. It's when he explains he went into that year without the same mind set as he had previously, and he jinxed himself by not bringing a white gi. He adds that his lack of commitment to Judo that year was probably one of the reasons he wasn't himself throughout that tournament – hence losing. Inoue fans know he doesn't lose when he is at his best. I think it's on dvd 3? Inoue – The Samauri.
