Hane Goshi - Judo Throw- A Very Comprehensive Analysis




A PDF called "HANE GOSHI

Here is a link to a PDF called "HANE GOSHI - Analysis and technical applications", that was originally shared by Donna Schakelaar on the Google + Judo group. I found it very stimulating.

I love papers on judo throws that are well thought out, well researched and contribute to my understanding. It is disconcerting how much rubbish one has to read through before you get the good stuff. But this is definitely the good stuff. For instance, I had never made the connection to Uki Goshi and Hane Goshi before. Yet reading this I wonder "how did I miss it".

It was only a paragraph but the discussion on the "Leaning back" also captured my attention. This is something that I have talked about before under Uki Goshi. It was a pity that the were no pictures to help explain it. Although I wasn't quite sure in the end if he was promoting it or demoting it.

One other thing that stood out to me was it convinced me even more that those who are promoting the "wrong leg Uchi Mate are really just doing Hane Goshi.
