Tai Otoshi, "Body Drop" is one of the most effective, and hardest throws in Judo. One reason Tai Otoshi is so hard, is that the dynamics of the throw are very different from any other forward throw in Judo. Instead of closing the distance between your opponent, with Tai Otoshi, you must maintain space to do the throw effectively. Here we look at a very detailed breakdown of the throws components. Hope you enjoy!
