    im a judoka and this book is one of the best available. it reminds all judoka to stop relying on the gi. the techniques are completely different from anything ive ever see before. also ive never seen such detail in a martial arts book. you literally get 3 camera angles for most techniques. the only thing i would say is if you dont have any judo experience you’ll problably have trouble with this book, this is not basic judo.

  2. Wow. I thought this would be all throws. There are throws, counter throws, a whole soi age seciton, a whle osoto gari section, Tai Otoshis, Harai Goshis, and Uchimatas galor from all kinds of setups andcounters. Tere are a handful of throws off of the Kimura hold. There are even some good old double and single leg takedowns. There are methods of clinching and even striking to get the clinch. There’s a section on Judo pins. Mount, Side Control, Scarf, reverse scarf,and north-south all have their own sections on transitions and sumissions. There are a lot of unique Hayastan/Gokor style subs I have NEVER seen in 13 years of MA training. The book ends with Ground and Pound techniques.

    If you want to fight like Karo, this IS the book for you!

  3. As mentioned, the book is much more than throws. If you want to throw someone you typically need to clinch…this can be tough if strikes are allowed, especially if your opponent has a reach advantage. This book covers a few striking methods to close the gap and get into the clinch.

    I was happy to see a very good section on the guard and submissions from this position.

    This book covers a large amount of “phases” of combat including standing at a distance, clinching, throwing, and ground work and does it all very well. It will be truly valued by the kickboxer who wants to close the gap to clinch/throw, by the grappler, and the mixed martial artist. Victory Belt has put out another quality product.

    What I like most about this book, is that uke (recipient of the technique)is taller and bigger than nage (one who applies the technique). Although fighting in the civilized world is the last resort, it is seldom that a smaller person is the instigator unless he is armed. It is known that attacker are always bigger and stronger than their prey. This book shows judo as it used by a smaller person against a bigger and taller opponent.

    The book shows judo techniques applied in a different manner, without the gi. A book is a book, and techniques remain effective only when learned by heart with a partner that provide equal resistant. The techniques should be practiced and tested for its effectiveness with a willing partner.

    Karo is the best mixed martial artist/judoka to have adapted Judo throws to the MMA game. Some fighters are better Judo players than he is, and some are better mixed martial artists, but no one combines the two as good as Karo. In this book, he breaks down the grips that allow him to apply judo throws in a no-gi context. Many excellent throws and some great ground techniques. Victory Belt is amazing and this book fits with the high quality of instructional manuals they have published so far.
