Ippon-seoi-nage is probably the most popular throw in judo. However, most of the ippon-seoi-nages that you see in competition are of the drop variety. Standing ippon-seoi-nage is much rarer. In this video, Travis Stevens, who was known for his standing ippon-seoi-nage, goes through the ins and outs of this dynamic technique.
Starting with the basics, he explains how to do uchikomi properly, why he prefers the upper arm grip (which defies convention) and the correct body positioning. After that, he goes into the more advanced “split hips” variations commonly used by standing seoi-nage specialists. He details the core movements as well as the right body positioning for lifting.
For drilling, he demonstrates how to do proper nagekomi as well as speed throwing and moving uchikomi. This video is an example of the level of detail that goes into the tutorials that Travis Stevens and Jimmy Pedro will be offering in American Judo System.
