What Will You Learn?

Travis Stevens adds another classic to his collection of instructionals with American Judo System The Osoto Gari Encyclopedia. This 8-part series provides a masterclass on all-things Osoto Gari. Travis will build your Osoto Gari from the ground up if you are a complete beginner, or revitalize this classic throw with new set ups and finishes for those crafty vets out there. Everyone from ALL levels can gain a new perspective on one of the most effective techniques in Judo, the Osoto Gari!

Build your Osoto from the ground up using Travis’s shadow movement drills and floor diagram exercises. Although simple, these two aspects of The Osoto Gari Encyclopedia can provide the essential foundation of your Osoto Gari. Not only will you develop smoother movement patterns, soon you will find yourself in the optimal position to execute Osoto. Floor diagrams can make a huge difference by letting you see EXACTLY where your feet are landing on the floor. Footwork, body mechanics, and leg positioning are crucial when executing ANY technique in Judo, floor diagrams give you the ability to self correct your technique.

Travis continues to add to your Osoto arsenal by giving you TWO drilling sections focused solely on set ups and finishes for Osot Gari. The Osoto Gari Encyclopedia provides ample amounts of Uchikomi (drilling a technique without the finish) and Nage Komi (drilling a technique with a finish). This allows you to isolate specific aspects of Osoto and make the EVEN SHARPER!



The Osoto Gari Encyclopedia provides three sections dedicated to intermediate and advanced combinations, as well as common mistakes that can occur. Regardless of your level, Travis has you covered! Use the foundations and basics you learned in the first sections of The Osoto Gari Encyclopedia and seamlessly apply those skills with Travis’s creative Osoto combinations. The Osoto Gari lends itself perfectly to other complementary techniques like kouchi, ouchi gari, and other foot sweeps.

Take your offense to the next level with Travis’s complete overhaul of Osoto Gari! Check out the complete technique list below!
