Technique of the Week - O goshi

O goshi is a hip throw and is one of the first 40 throws of the Kodokan. It is also part of the updated 67 throws of the kodokan. O goshi is a great throw to teach beginners because it has all the elements needed in judo, from pivoting, pulling off balance, bending the knees and rotating to throw.
It can be done gi or no gi and is great when your opponent loves overhooks.

No Gi version
