Kashiwazaki’s side control (Part 1/2) English
The most prominent Judo ground fighting specialist in modern times, Katsuhiko Kashiwazaki won the 1981 World Championships with a variation of side control in the final.
In this video, Kashiwazaki shows his favourite side control (yoko-shiho-gatame) position.
The English subtitles are original. The approach was not to translate every word, but the key messages. If there is a part you think might be important, please comment with a timestamp and I will translate it in a reply.
Also, Kashiwazaki’s full instructional is over 2 hours long. I plan to translate other portions of it gradually. If there is a particular technique you’re interested in please comment and I will work on it first.
Subtitling is surprisingly time-consuming, so it may take some time – please subscribe and turn on notifications (little bell icon) so you don’t miss future videos!
