Winning Fundamentals

Being good a Judo is not as hard as you think!

You are not bad at Judo, you just need some Winning Fundamentals! 

I have been involved in Judo for a long time now! I have worked with complete beginners all the way through to Olympic level athletes and it pains me when I see white belts and black belts making the same mistakes! 

Judo is not a random set of movements, it is a sport of strategy, a sport of brains not just braun! Judo is more like chess where you and your opponent are setting out the foundation for battle! 

A common mistake with Judoka (and coaches) is they are focussing on the wrong thing... generally the throw (the end result) rather than the process of what gets them to that point. Winning Fundamentals will help you create the understanding and structure around your Judo to take you to the next level! 

I really enjoyed watching this. Firstly, whilst it is great to see a former GB international sharing his knowledge, it's clear that Vince has spent many hours coaching.

He shows a great understanding of the WHY not just the WHAT, in well structured lessons that progress seamlessly onto the next.

Well done Vince, a great contribution to the online judo community.

Are you left or right handed? Do you do Judo on the left and right side? If the answer is yes STOP RIGHT NOW! This is one of the biggest mistakes I see in Judo! 

"Why?! "I hear you ask ... "the Japanese practice Judo on both sides! " Yes you are correct, they also practice a minimum of 3 hours at a time 5 days a week (That's 780 hours of Judo a year ... Minimum). 

Most people who practice Judo at a non elite level might practice 3 hours per week, and if you break that down to technical training and not randori it will be even less. 

My point is if you practice left and right you will be equally bad on both sides and never develop the structure needed to be effective long term. - On a side note you will also be more prone to injuries!

If you want to throw more practice your break falls! 

No, I have not lost my mind. If you would like to Throw more in randori and competition you need to take the time to practice your breakfalls! 

The reason is simple - confidence and fear.

To attack in Judo you need to attack without fear ... but a lot of Judoka miss their opportunity to throw their opponent purely because they are worried that they will get hurt if they are thrown. 

This has a lot of negative compounding effects. 

You become tense - which slows you down and inhibits your ability to feel your opponent

You overreact to their movement - which sets you up for being thrown

You break posture to keep distance - which gives you to much distance to travel to attack effectively

If you want to really improve your Judo you need to lose the fear of being thrown and losing, if you can do those two things you can build confidence in your Judo and attack without fear! 

This course was a gem of a find.

B Devine - Beginner Judoka

As a beginner with practically zero experience this course was a gem of a find. The course is well laid out and easy to follow and the how and the why are well covered. As an older beginner this has given me the confidence and the motivation to get in and get on with it.
Thank you Vince

If you can't grip you can't throw!

Whether you are a beginner or elite judoka you need to understand gripping! It is the gateway to better Judo!

Winning Fundamentals will guide you through the essentials of gripping! 

Not just the how but more importantly the WHY! 

Losing structure loses so many Judo contests!

This competition analysis demonstrates how a lack of structure can really affect your ability to win matches! 

This analysis comes from my YouTube channel which has 100's of FREE tutorials. You can check that out here.

"If you do not understand, that's not your fault, that's mine." As a coach my job is to help you understand what I know about Judo, if you do not understand it, I am not doing my job well!  Winning Fundamentals is the beginning of a your quest for better Judo! 

3 Easy steps to create a Winning Structure

In Winning Fundamentals I continue to demonstrate the importance of a winning structure and this can be broken down in 3 easy steps.

Stance: correct stance for your grip or attack.

Posture: ensuring you have your head up and shoulders back is so important! 

Hands Up: Attack - Defend - Control the distance 

Winning Ne Waza - Techniques Everyone should Know!

  • 7 Vital hold downs 
    You will know all of these hold downs, but I guarantee you will still learn something new!  
  • Building the escape sequence. 
    Most people will learn the basic escapes in Judo, but very few learn the correct sequence of the escapes. Learning this will improve your ability to avoid being held down and allow you to attack from these positions.
  • Effective attacks from every position. Do you know attacks that actually score from every position (all fours, prone, guard, in guard, half guard)?   

Stop making the same mistakes! 

If you truly want to improve your Judo, if you want to stop making the same mistakes, if you want to be able to perform higher level techniques, you need to stop doing what you've always done and try something new! 

I am so proud to have been able to help 1000's of Judoka in person on the mat and taking their Judo to the next level. This has not been through any fancy tricks or techniques, this has been through creating Winning Fundamentals.
