What Will You Learn?

2013 is the year that leg grabbing techniques became banned from International Judo competition. For many Judoka out there it was a sad day. The rules have catered to specific throws that surely are beautiful as they are tactical, but for Old School aficionado's it took away some of their best weapons. Gary St Leger looks to uncover the unconventional with Old School Judo.


You will learn the unconventional methods to leg grabs and pickups that have been forgotten by a good portion of the martial arts world. Once you are able to threaten with an ankle pick to set up your drop seoi nage you will be HOOKED on Old School Judo. Gary covers a wide array of classic techniques with a fresh coat of paint. He shows you how to keep your opponent guessing by using feints and fakes that your opponent MUST defend.

These techniques are so effective that they had to change the rules. Regardless of how you feel about that, there is no denying the power of a more well-rounded approach to stand up grappling. Whether you are a Jiu-Jitsu person looking to add some quality takedowns, or a Judo player looking to kick it old school, Gary St Leger has the techniques you NEED!
