Product Description

Product Description

Ground fighting is taking the martial arts world by storm . . . but how do you get to the ground safely and end in a prone position? What are the dangers of throwing and taking an opponent over? Geoff teaches you how to control vertical grappling and destroy an assailant with a demolishing throw, including the original ‘blow before throw’ techniques banned from sport grappling a hundred years ago. Geoff is qualified in all the different forms of grappling and teaches with a realistic bent. A must for any one who wants to survive a close range encounter in a REAL situation.

Geoff Thompson draws upon many years of dealing with raw street violence to produce a series of books that treat martial arts with an edge of reality, making them far more reliable as methods of self defence.

In this fully illustrated Throws and Take-Downs manual he covers multiple throwing techniques from Judo - Tachi Waza.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rushed. 18 Jan 2014

Little things like incorrect names for moves (Ippon Sheonagi) to pictures that are less than textbook to say the least (I take Judo at a very good school). This is meant to be a quick way to incorporate judo techniques into a self defense curriculum; however, it could have been done much better. -DK
1.0 out of 5 stars waste of time and money... 14 Jan 2014

i am a judo enthusiast, i am literally obsessed with Judo, i am an aikido black belt and have practice miyama ryu jujutsu, wrestling and bjj, was looking for a judo book to read in the train, and dont know why i thought this was a good option. the author cant even spell correctly the techniques, i.e. at one point he starts to describe seoi nage and he wrote ippon shionagi... at that point i said... no more, it literally hurt my eyes... i requested a refund and WILL NOT RECOMMEND this sbook to anyone wanting to know about judo
