Master the basics with Shintaro Higashi, 6th-degree black belt and US National Champion

Sharpen your judo basics and start scoring takedowns with technique (instead of muscle) with judo professor Shintaro Higashi’s fundamentals course. Learn how to grip, create leverage, off-balance opponents, and control the fight as you trip and throw people down. Shintaro, a multiple-time national champion, has extensive experience in judo and BJJ (and has even helped train athletes like Bernardo Faria!), and this series is aimed at helping people from both sports improve their stand up.

Build your game around the essentials, as Shintaro takes you piece by piece through what every effective judoka needs to know. He teaches in a very open, detailed way that makes sense, even if you haven’t had a long history of judo. For more experienced players, Shintaro adds in some of the black belt details that make the difference at the highest levels. Finally, Shintaro closes by explaining how to bring it all together for one complete style that works for you.

Shintaro is an experienced coach and competitor, winning national judo titles himself and representing America on the world black belt level. He also coaches at his club in New York City, which has become a hub for high level fighters (including world champions like Bernardo Faria!). Bernardo credits Shintaro for a lot of his judo improvements, and Shintaro brings those same lessons here for your benefit.

Clean up your basics and improve your total game by adding in the setups and kuzushi that will keep your opponent off balance and not attacking. With fake steps, misdirections, and direct attacks, learn the dynamics behind every throw and set them up the right way. From white to black belt, these lessons will make the difference in your style and bring you to a whole new level of judo success.

You can use this series to learn how to create a complete judo style, building the game around Shintaro’s effective grip fighting sequences and set ups. With the same coaching that elite BJJ fighters seek out, learn how to get takedowns, grip fight, and be precise with your judo on the mats. With this new 4-volume series, master the basics with Shintaro Higashi.
