Kashiwazaki Ne Waza Technique

Today’s video is another simple ne waza (ground fighting technique) that is not only very effective but full of possible variations and follow on techniques.

It is a sweep from when your opponent is in front of you as opposed to in your guard. Although it is possible to use the technique when you have someone in your guard or butterfly guard, it is best used when your opponent is in front of you as the momentum you generate when falling backwards helps in flipping your opponent over.

The technique plus a simple variation is demonstrated here by one of Judo’s greatest ever ground fighters Katsuhiko Kashiwazaki. For Judo purposes, the sweep is great is one as able to gain a tight osae komi hold down after it and for BJJ/submission fighters it opens up various possibilities for arm bars and chokes. Enjoy!
