The Osoto Gari (translated to Major Outer Reap) is a staple judo throw. You can find footage of it being performed in the dojos of Japan dating back a hundred years. It is a timeless technique, used constantly in judo competition. However, in submission grappling, kids seem to pick it up and use it faster than adults. The reason likely lies in the lack of time dedicated to stand-up techniques in most jiu-jitsu academies.
In this course, I aim to use my knowledge as a judo and jiu jitsu black belt to add this weapon of a throw to your arsenal. I`ve meticulously structured this course to progress from the basic principles to advanced combinations, while not forgetting about nogi, complete beginners and even self-defense.
The basic principle behind the Osoto Gari is simple: Pull your opponent`s weight so that he`s standing on one leg and then chop that leg away. My goal for this course is equally clear and simple. After watching this and practicing the osoto, you WILL hit this LIVE or I will personally give you your money back. – Miha Perhavec, Course Author & Jiu Jitsu X co-founder
