still learning wrote:Wow, some harsh words for the OP. There are (thankfully) only a view clips of me on the web and I wouldn't have the balls to post them on here; so genuine respect for having the courage to do so.
Just because something works doesn't make it right. If you cannot identify the core principle that makes your throw work then you need to review it until you can. This is easier said than done, but when you can do this your judo will improve immeasurably.
Harsh words? I knew as soon as I read the OPs question this would become one of 'those' threads.
This is cyber judo so we all have a voice. No tatami here to demonstrate or makes ones point more palatable or give a clearer demonstration.
The 'red light' to me was not in the OP's question but where his coach described this action as some sort of de ashi barai? To me from then on all was lost. No one here can nor should replace ones coach and its a pointless exercise in even trying to offer the OP any advice given his coaches comments.To the OP.
Thank you for posting your clip. It is very VERY difficult to offer you help via this media. The person you need to chat with is your coach. From your wording I take it your coach accepts and encourages you to make such actions in shiai?
Two points. One you will hurt a partner doing this sort of action and you will not progress in learning your judo. You may, SHORT TERM, win trophies at championships BUT there will come a time when this sort of action will greatly play against you UNLESS you sand bag and remain a yellow obi all your judo life?
I would not worry about the name I would concentrate on learning judo technique. This will depend on your coach though and from what you have read it 'appears' your teacher is happy with your progress. To that end what we write here is redundant.
PLEASE accept we are here to support and offer you all the help we can BUT there are limitations to that given your coach and this media.
Very best wishes,
