Ippon Seoi Toshi – Single arm body drop
Ippon Seoi Nage – Single arm shoulder throw

Groundwork Techniques

Demonstrate the following groundwork techniques:

  • The first five hold down techniques in the groundwork wheel while Uke tries to escape. Control of Uke must be evident.
  • Two individual techniques turning Uke over from a crouching position resulting in any arm lock, strangle or hold down.

Combination techniques

Demonstrate the following combination technique:

  • Ouchi Gari into Tai Otoshi


  • 3 wins against similar grade or line up of mixed grades

Please note that grading is an assessment of a students knowledge, skill and ability. Clearly, the objective is to win in contest. However, where winning through if a student wins through use of brute force and aggression, rather than a demonstration of skill, technique and understanding of judo the student may not be awarded their grade.
