In the last century, the famous six-dan judo master Takao Kawaguchi, known as the “little bully” of judo, was one meter sixty-four meters tall and weighed 55 kilograms. He has a brilliant record in his judo career: winning the All Japan Student Championship several times, winning the Asian Championship at the age of 20, becoming the “Leaguer” of the featherweight division of the World Championship at the age of 21, and winning the Olympic Judo Championship at the age of 22.
Wearing a small judo suit sewn by his mother at the age of five, Kawaguchi embarked on a “judo journey” and laid a solid foundation in judo under the strict training of his father (Ichiro Kawaguchi and Kodokan Hachidan). Takao Kawaguchi is good at taking the initiative in competition, boldly using technology, and full of self-confidence. He said: “How you usually practice, you should show it decisively in the game. ”
Takao Kawaguchi’s proudly practiced skills are constantly honed in training and competition according to his own characteristics, and then developed, which is very suitable for lightweight judoka “borrowing”. Therefore, his “proud skills” have become a “model” for young Japanese players to learn.
Below, he introduces his three “proud skills” for China’s young athletes to learn and reference.
(1) Batou – Cross Gu
Figure 1: After the two sides fight, the caster consciously pulls the opponent towards his left side (the accustomed right caster can pull it to the left).
Figure 2: During the pull, the upper body suddenly descends, the center of gravity of the body falls backwards, both hands grasp each other, and the left foot is pressed against the opponent’s belt (abdomen).
Picture 3: Keep your hands pressed while your left foot is facing upwards and use your batou technique to pick up your opponent.
Figures 4 and 5: If the Batou move is “freed” by the opponent, immediately use the opponent’s “liberation” force, flip it to the ground, and get up and “mount” on the opponent.
Figures 6 and 7: Grab the opponent’s left wrist with both hands, and use the “Cross Solid” trick to “lock” the opponent and prevent him from “freeing” again.
Note that the technical points of this linkage are:
Figure 8: The caster grabs the opponent’s right elbow sleeve with his left hand and the opponent’s jacket with his right hand, keeping a certain width between his hands to facilitate the use of his moves.
Figure 9: When switching from the Figure 2 technique to the Figure 3 technique, the upper body of the recruiter should be “grouped”, and the two eyes should not peek into the opponent’s face.
(2) Internal Stocks
This technique is a very effective trick in active offense.
Figure 10: Grab and pull the opponent’s right elbow sleeve with the left hand and grab the opponent’s left placket with the right hand.
Figure 11: The center of gravity shifts slightly to the right, and the left hand pulls out the opponent’s right hand.
Figure 12: Suddenly raise the upper body, drive both hands up, while the left foot does a precursor cross step, moving to the outside of the opponent’s left foot.
Figure 13: With the left leg as the rotation support axis, the right foot is inserted between the opponent’s feet, ready to perform the internal strand technique.
Figure 14: The upper body is tilted forward, using rotational inertia, and the outside of the right thigh is lifted up against the opponent’s crotch abdomen.
Figure 15: The toe of the left foot “points the ground”, and the right foot continues to “tall”, so that the opponent’s feet are off the ground and the body is out of balance; Then, throw the opponent from the side of the body to the ground.
Note that the technical points of this trick are:
Figure 16: When transferring from the Fig. 12 technique to the Fig. 13 technique, the direction of the two-hand pull-guide action must be opposite to the direction of the front cross step of the left foot, and the hand-foot coordination should be coordinated and coherent.
(3) Decaying wood falling
Before implementing this technique, athletes should first overwhelm their opponents in momentum, and they can make their opponents feel “fear” by shouting loudly, or grab the fighter at the moment of hesitation and suddenly perform the technique.
Figure 17: The caster “eyes” the opponent with both eyes and a “roar” in his mouth, so as to “calm” the opponent in terms of momentum and prepare for a quick attack.
Figure 18: Without waiting for the opponent’s feet, quickly rush in front of the opponent (should keep the frontal attack).
Figure 19: The right hand holds the opponent’s right shoulder collarbone, and the left hand “locks” the opponent’s right elbow to prevent him from “escaping”; The right foot is inserted into the opponent’s right Achilles tendon with the technique of “small inner cutting”, and the upper body is in the “horse stride” position.
Figure 20: The sole of the right foot presses against the opponent’s right heel and is lifted firmly backward and upward; At the same time, the upper body is tightly attached to the opponent’s upper body, and the left hand grasps and pulls the knee socket of the opponent’s right leg.
Figures 21 and 22: The right foot suddenly takes a large step forward, in the posture of “right front lunge”; Hold your opponent’s right foot upwards with your left hand, hold your opponent’s right shoulder collarbone with your right hand, and push forward to balance your opponent’s center of gravity and push him down.
Note that the technical points of this trick are:
Figure 23: The caster’s right hand must hold down the opponent’s right shoulder collarbone, and the left hand firmly “controls” the opponent’s right elbow joint to prevent it from “breaking free”, otherwise, it will be difficult to perform the technique. (Ran Qianghui)
