Shime Waza & Contest TimeYou have to remember that the only time you are going to actually try to do this strangle is in Randori or Shiai (contest without points or contest with points; I know some will argue that definition but it will do ok), and Nobody who has got themselves into a defensive position, where such a Shime Waza could be done, is going to let you thread your arm through like the video shows without a fight. It is competition after all.
Is this a bad thing?
Well not really. As much as doing ground work was my favorite thing, Judo is not BJJ and it just means that you are just going to have to work harder and smarter to get your entry.
You are going to have to create a gap for your arm to enter before you can execute anything.
There are many ways to create such a gap. Too many to discuss in this one blog post, so you are going to have to talk to your coach but once you are in, this Shime Waza is quick and easy to archive.
