Yes, today we did “Uchi Mata”, no surprises there. We looked at the technique in different scenarios and took time to practice. Again Mr Inoue stressed the importance of the basic fundamentals of judo being so important “KUZUSHI”, movement and co-ordination of your body movement. What struck me most was that for a -100Kg player he was not very tall. He was however like a little ball of POWER. You could see how dynamic his movement is, and he is overall a very nice and humble person who was more than happy to go through things and have photo’s taken etc. A very good advert for JUDO.
