FORBIDDEN JUDO: A TOUR OF TECHNIQUES BANNED IN SHIAI FROM 1916 TO PRESENT DAY.


Sure, all thing change over time - we get that.  Adaptation and hopefully progress occurs. You had a Miguel Torres mullet last year and now you wear a Cobrinha-esque fauxhawk.   Progress.  But, in competition Judo we've seen an eroding of allowable or legal techniques over time.  Progress?

The basic rules of Judo are supposedly designed to allow the most techniques possible, while minimizing the risk of serious injury.  But, more rules are implemented every few years that, in a sense, water down the sport by limiting both throwing and ground techniques. The result - most Judo schools teach strictly in the context of the sport (i.e., according to the rules).

Take a look at the video below demonstrating the now banned Judo techniques and decide for yourself.

  1. The fact that there are even Japanese names for most of those techniques makes this sad.

    1. Beautiful moves, shame might be lost because of rule changes. Bjj still has all those moves legal in comp. Aside from the outer to inner leg entaglenent, however, i still use it in practice.

  3. Actually the first sukui nage is still allowed as it's a counter. The second one isn't. And the second ouchigari would probably be allowed as well. I do agree that the rules are much too limiting. The olympics were the worst thing to happen to judo, and it's the main reason I don't want BJJ in the olympics.

  4. BJJ still has most if not all (at higher levels) of these throws. It's a great shame that Judo has been watered down.

  6. The funny thing is that a number of those throws (kata guruma, te guruma to name two) are still Kodokan goyku, meaning syllabus taught. That you can't fight with them is just horse shit.

  7. Olympics killed Greco-Roman and Taekwondo as well. Olympics suck.

  8. Cool video, some things were inaccurate. You can assist the ko-uchi and o-uchi gari with the hand but it has to be a continuation and you need body contact first.

  10. Just because you got a permit to use an RPG doesnt mean you have to use it in shooting competition. Olympic was made for sportmanship not killing each other. If you want to use that kind of a technique in profesional championship you must ask your self whether you understand the true meaning of Judo. Is it to show off cool and dangerous technique or to honor your opponent by doing a fair and sportive competition without ill intent to harm them? Its not that Judo is no better in fighting against BJJ, but they were not teach to harm their opponent, while looking at most comment I would say that BBJ is intended to freely use the technique despite of the consequences to their opponent. If you intend to harm your opponent its easier to use a Mac 10 than using dirty technique.
