The Gokyo no Waza is the standard syllabus of Judo throws originated in 1895. From 1920 to 1982 the Kodokan Gokyo no Waza was made up of 40 throws in 5 groups and these were all of the throwing techniques in the Kodokan syllabus. Around the 100th anniversary of the Kodokan (1982) a group of 8 traditional Judo throws were recognized that had been taken out in 1920, and 17 newer techniques were recognized as official Kodokan Judo throws (called the Shinmeisho no Waza). In 1997 the Kodokan added the last two additional Judo throws to the Shinmeisho no Waza. The following are the only throwing techniques (nage waza) currently recognized by the Kodokan.

Not a whole lot of information available on this time capsule video, but we do know that it was a Filmcraft production of 1947. Producer and director was William Forest Crouch and featured Mary Parker and Lou Leonard.
In the past you have seen our “Private Sessions” interviews, where we get to know various BJJ players. Now we will also be doing “Private Lessons” (you see what we did there?) videos featuring some of our favorite Jiu Jitsu personalities.
For this seventh installment of Private Lessons we are featuring Dainis Nguyen. Dainis is a Judo Black belt and a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Brown belt. He has sent us numerous videos of himself seamlessly linking his Judo and Jiu Jitsu. After pleading with him for long enough I was able to convince him to do a Private Lesson video demonstrating some of his secrets. I hope you find this technique to be as helpful as I have!
Below is an example of Dainis using this technique to win a BJJ competition in 15 seconds!
Thank you Dainis Nguyen for the technique! To preview the next technique that Dainis is going to teach (in action) click here!

Dainis Nguyen has been a long time WBBJJ fan. He has been destroying people in competition using his judo skills in tandem with his excellent Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Check out his latest victory which took all of 15 seconds to accomplish (the video lags for a second at the beginning). Dainis has promised us a Private Lesson Video so we can all see the fine details of the Osoto Gari/Armbar transition from the man himself! Thanks for the submission Dainis!
It seems to be a never ending argument of which martial art style is the greatest of them all. In this case here, we have a classic Jiu Jitsu vs. Judo matchup. The Judoka is a Black Belt and the White Belt is Jiu Jitsu and MMA Legend, BJ Penn. I probably don’t have to tell you how the match goes. Just watch. You definitely don’t want to miss it!
