    Kimura's throws?

    Post by Sukai on Sun Jun 02, 2013 11:59 am

    I am in the midst of redefining my tournament throws and was wondering if anyone knew which throws Kimura focused on in his prime? I know he had a devastating osoto-gari (my favorite throw also) and I remember reading that he also liked seoi-nage.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Question: What is so special about the throws that Kimura focused upon during his prime?

    "People call me "Jôshô (meaning a man of constant wins or a man who always wins) Kimura". However, I have 4 losses in my judo life. I suffered all these losses when I was a 1st year student at Takushoku University. Until then, I had believed that Ô-soto-gari, Seoi-nage, Ô-uchi-gari, and so on as completed techniques, and compiled wins using these techniques. However, in the spring of 1935, my favorite techniques faced limitations for the first time."  (...)

    "When I was in the 5th grade, I had my first shiai. I participated in a team match with Nakayama Dôjô which was about 6km away from my dojo. My opponent was an 8th grader and was bigger than I. I attempted Tai-Otoshi and Ô-soto-gari, but he did not move a bit. I then tried Ô-uchi-gari, he reversed it threw me onto the floor, and pinned me by Kami-shihô-gatame. I could not get out of it and lost." (...)

    "When my turn as the Captain came, Kyôto First Commerce Junior High team still had 3 members left. I beat these 3 men by Ô-Uchi-Gari, Newaza, and Newaza respectively. As a result, Chinsei Junior High became the national champion for the first time in its history." (...)


    In addition, Kimura depending on the situation sometimes converted his ô-soto-gari into ô-soto-otoshi or ô-soto-makikomi.
