How Elite Judoka Set up, Use and Flow from Ouchi Gari for Judo / BJJ
Paralympic judo follows the same rules as Olympic judo, with the difference that judokas shall start and remain during the combat holding each other’s suits. Only athletes with visual impairment are eligible to compete, with all the sight classes (B1, B2 and B3) competing together and divided according to the judokas’ weight. This reduced vision means that judoka in these categories have to develop exceptional technique in order to make up for the lack of this particular sensory input. Ouchi Gari is classed as a foot technique and is one of the original 40 Judo throws as developed by Kanō Jigorō.
