Judo Gokyo Flashcards


I assess grapplers’ needs and abilities by looking at the five branches of the Jiu-Jitsu Organizer Tree.

The five branches of the Jiu-Jitsu Organizer TREE.

Grappling: Who can we control, tap out?

Learning: How much knowledge have we gained since last time?

Conditioning: What kind of mental and physical shape are we in?

Culture: How well do we understand grappling history, customs, language, geography, and so on.

Teaching: How much do we contribute and help others?

To sum it up then: What can we do? and Who can we help?

Kang Collar Choke

Dennis Kang demonstrates a jiu-jitsu collar choke from side-mount on Stephan Kesting.

Note: As with all the video curation we do here on CharlesSmith.org, take this one with a grain of salt. We gather everything we can from BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu), Judo, MMA (mixed martial arts), wrestling, and many other arts, but can't guarantee it's applicability, or safety, for your own personal use.
