More Judo Techniques Taught by Korean 7th Dan Master
Wow! It’s been nearly a year since I first posted judo video tutorials by my 7th dan instructor. I don’t know why I haven’t done more. I literally walked into one of the coolest situations a judoka could ask for. Just steps from my first apartment was a small, but historical Korean judo school.
Amazingly, the judo school was founded before Korea even established it’s independence.
About a year before Korea became an independent nation, Kook Sa Kwan Yudo Jang was founded in Japan. Pretty cool, isn’t it.
The current school owner and headmaster is a 7th dan mini juggernaut from the old days of the sport. The school’s rich history is written all over the walls and I periodically randomly meet people on the streets of Busan who have trained there. It only makes sense that I try to capture this hidden gem of a master on camera while I’m here.
Initially, I filmed Master Goh Chung-Pil demonstrating O-Goshi, Tsurikomi Goshi, and Seoi Nage combined with Ko Uchi Gari. Needless to say, these were hits in the judo community. It left many asking…should I say, begging for more.
I’ve since moved out of that neighborhood and I don’t actually train there any longer, but I did make a trek back to see my old friends there to capture some more of the owners technical details on film. The three new techniques I cover are as follows:
- Uchi Mata
- Osoto Gari
- Tai Otoshi
I am confident someone somewhere will benefit from the breakdowns he gives. Make sure to hit the English captions on the video!
