The book starts with a short 2-page chapter describing the authors personal view of the throw, including describing how he used the throw during his career. Another short chapter on the history of the technique then follows, which does include some nice descriptions of the application of the technique.
However the main bulk of the book really starts on Chapter 3 which considers the techniques necessary to implement the throw. Amongst other things, the grips, stepping patterns, and hip position for the throw are all covered. Chapter 4 then goes on to discuss combinations, showing how the throw can be implemented in combination with other techniques. Chapter 5 entitled counters discusses how Harai-goshi can be used as a counter against other techniques. This is followed by Chapter 6 which is my favorite chapter entitled training for Harai-goshi. This covers a variety of exercises, most of which are solo exercises (against a wall) that can be used as training for this throw, and although this chapter is only 5 pages long it really is very interesting. Although it is noted that the author uses a padded wall to illustrate some of these training techniques, so the reader might need to improvise to apply some of the techiques himself. A short chapter on how Harai-goshi might be used in self defence follows, before finally a chapter describing how harai goshi has been used in competition judo.Read more ›
