A Counter That Simply Works

The beauty of this counter throw is that, it is simple and it works. So many counters that I've seen presented over the years leave me in a state of amazement. I have difficulty believing that people have such vivid imaginations.

I don't mean that to sound derogatory in any way. I am genuinely impress that people can come up with such elaborate techniques.

I'm also not saying that these elaborate Judo throws don't work; most of them probably do. But they hardly fulfill that "maximum efficiency for minimum effort" category.

I'm not a person who likes complicated. Not only that but I find the simpler a throw the more likely you are going to be able to practice it to the point it is both effective and efficient.

This video give a very clear view of one of the most popular judo throws, Tai-O-Toshi being counters by a much less popular Judo throw Ko-Soto-Gake
