We had a bit of fun yesterday which worked on reacting quickly in Newaza situations. As you dont get long to work in newaza now its important that reactions are quick. The video of this exercise involves the person attacking his partner to instructions from the coach. He rests his chest on the person who is covering up in a ball and moves in a circular motion around their body, the coach will shout “left hand” the attacking person must then use his left hand to grab Uke’s judogi or grab an arm or grip sleeve/lapel, then continue moving. The coach will shout a scenario of different limbs to use e.g. left leg, right hand, two hands, two feet.
