Vintage footage of Okano training. Incredible.

10 minutes of Randori starting at the 4 minute mark. Amazing. Blue namer please.

Okano's ground game is/was also incredible as evidenced by some clips in this highlight. A perfect blend of standup and ground.

for later

His training partner in the first video is George Mehdi.

Fun to watch!


When I watch world class players the first thing I look for is how they set up their throws. His fake kouchi gari followed by osoto (3:38/4:22)is one of them, another is his fake seionage followed by kouchi gari (3:52).

I love the loop choke that he used on Grossain. Awesome.
