How do you order them?!!

Hi Mr. Tripp,

You can get these tapes? I haven't been able to locate the ones I am messing with- from the 80's thereabouts. I had a heckuva time getting these.I think the ones the newaza dojo in Tokyo made are a different.

Should I keep on with this post?

To lock his shoulder means to grab the obi at the back and lock his head with your elbow. Don?ft push him down, but more like pushing upwards from a lower position, press your knee into their hipbone, pull your backside. Do not extend your legs because the opponent can do niju garami, let him squeeze only your ankle. Keep your knee out. Take a breath with this position and then work to various osaekomi or gyamu shime. This is the basic position of locking the shoulder. Another way of locking is by putting your shoulder to the side first and locking them, then take a breath. Attack from this position. These are two ways of locking, use the one you like, then move on to osaekomi or gyaku shime. ?g
14) Sensei talking: ?gRight before you move on to osaekomi, first lock his shoulders and (make sure to) lock them really hard even if they are struggling, so he is immobile. Pull only your knee free so he cannot do niju garami., let him squeeze your ankle. There are many ways to free your knee- to pull your knee and work to yoko shiho, press your fist into the inner thigh and push his knee away with your foot.?h
15) (still talking) ?gPull in a way that you can work to tate shiho. First, hook his arm and lock him tight. Get on top of the opponent, slide your legs out from between his with a sharp friction like action.?h
16) (still talking)To work to kesa gatame from this postion you twist your knees to the inside and hook his arm, kick (push) and press down, like this.
17) (still talking)To work to katagatame, again grab the hand that is locking the shoulder and hook their neck. Hold his shoulder and go under. Get ready for katagatame like this, then pull your leg like this. This is katagatame.

Whew! Okay I will get the rest as soon as I get off my duff and type the monster!

Folks, just order the tapes!!!!!

done, keep writing!!!!!

We all should get these tapes!

I wish I knew how to get these tapes!

Ok guys,

This June I am going to Japan. Near where I am staying is a video store that carries the Tokyo Newaza Dojo (different to the ones I translated) tapes, but they do not accept credit cards. So, what I think is best if you want me to get the Tokyo Dojo's tapes is : send the store a check -(for two tapes it's like $120, the yen is strong now so it will be a little less, but then raise up again because of tax)- I'll drop in and pick them up, carry them back with me to avoid the $30 shipping fee from Japan, I'll send them to you via USP (like $6 bucks). SO far this is just and idea and I am not sure how this will work out when the details are culled as to what can be done, but i'll give it a try!

Kosen Judo:
Essence of Newaza

Shime waza and Kansetsu Waza

Shime waza:

Juji shime and mae shime
1) Sensei talks: "Mae jime is also called juji jime because you grab the opponent's collar with your hands crossed. There are three types of juji- #1) is nami juji (normal) when you grab the collar (with the hands) in the same direction. #2) is gyaku juji (or) grabbing with the hands palm up. #3) Kata juji- one hand palm up the other palm down. Kata juji is the basic one and so I am going to explain kata juji jime. Grab the opponent's collar on the side, press the base of your thumb into the neck artery (big blood artery). Put your opposite hand around (the head and grab their collar), then pull them to your chest. Do not sprawl your arms but keep them pressed to your body, then choke. If you cannot put your left hand around, you can grab their mondokoro (where the family emblem is on the back of the gi, between the shoulders) and choke. To lock them completely, hook their arm, take their collar and pull to your chest- choking them like I explained- that way the opponent cannot escape."
2) Narrator- From the tachi position to juji jime (2 parts). The moment you come together you take the front of his collar and then grab their side collar and choke.
