I'm back to judo again.

I know I'm supposed to focus on one thing at a time, but I just can't help myself. It's really more like five things. Connection and staying centered is tops on my list, followed by passing guard, sweeps, takedowns and escapes. Ummmm, that's about everything in jits, except for submissions. Hmm. I think my subs are good enough to succeed, if you're bad enough for me to do all the rest of that list...

So check out this pretty stuff. I really enjoyed the toss at :35, the reap at 1:32 and 1:38, and holy shit the reap at 2:15!!!!!!! And look at her amazing rotation on the hip toss at 2:28, which is shown from two angles, the second being way better... The combination at 2:43 happens so quickly but the setup is so silky-smooth.. and then what looks like epic flail to me at 3:05, but is probably highly technical...



Then check out this little kid, only eight years old!



I like Massey's teaching style...



And this one, a kuzure osoto gari...



And then, a random Alec Baulding (Alliance) match, purple belt absolute at Mundials this year. Yes I admit I have a major jits crush on Alec :)

Please excuse my non-knowledge--I know Judo and BJJ are similar/different, but I have no understanding of how???

And the last video I wanted to tell the ref to "get the heck out of the way I can't see!" lol :)

That eight year old is no big deal. I could totally take him!
