Judo Gymnastics - Flip Escapes

Gymnastics o Wasa

Of course I just made that up as a name because I have no idea what sort of practice you would call this. But I've posted before about how my son performed a similar act of gymnastics and won a contest out of it. Of course I have no video of my sons event as it was before I had a video camera. So I am very pleased to present this video of similar moves.

With the rules on scoring becoming tighter and tighter (and about time form my point of view), I predict that these sort of moves are going to become more and more prevalent both in practice and full contest. In fact now that I think about it, whilst they were not as spectacular as these, if you watch a lot of the old video, many of the older Judoka used to do very similar escapes; particularly Mifuni.

If you do decide to practice these "flips" (for want of a better word) don't just practice them as escapes. My son won a contest with these kind of moves and he didn't even practice it as such. Imagine what could be done if you practiced winning moves.

This is another video from Facebook so you may have to be logged in to see it. While you are there make sure you
