Last 2 days we have been looking at throw 5 of our core techniques “Uchi Mata” probably the most difficult. The students are finding it hard to complete the throw using all the fundamental basics of the throw. In the 1st video above I have posted a short clip of Yuko (Coach at Bath Uni) where she talks about the foot positioning. This to me is probably the most important part of the throw to get right. I have also posted a video of Rob – As you can see not a bad effort just needs a lot more practice.
