Notice how his Osoto Gari Uchi-komis are different than what you see today in the average dojo.
Enjoy

Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God
Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Romans 5:6-8
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

They didn't seem that unusual to me. He steps to the outside, pulls uke to the side, has his forearm driving uke back and sweeps - textbook osoto gari. If you are referring to how he leaves his outside foot behind for the preliminary uchikomis (the partial ones), I think that's just his 'style' of building up to the throw where he executes. Further, by keeping his outside (non-reaping foot) back during the 'wind up' uchikomi's he can focus on his hikite.

interesting soundtrack, including what I am certain is the song from the godfather towards the end, as well as many other interesting ones.
"Let the refining and improving of your own life keep you so busy that you have little time to criticize others." -H. Jackson Brown Jr.

"Wise men don't need to prove their point. Men who need to prove their point aren't wise" -Lao Tzu

"When torrential waters move a massive boulder, it is because of momentum.
When a hawk’s strike breaks the body of its prey, it is because of timing." -Sun Tzu

"The Way of strategy is the Way of nature. When you appreciate the power of nature, knowing the rhythm of any situation,
you will be able to hit the enemy naturally and strike naturally. All this is the Way of the Void." -Miyamoto Musashi

One lucky fellow.
If I am doing "win," sloppy and sissy is fine; if I am doing Judo, beautiful is my rule and goal. Judo is far more important and rewarding than "win."

"What you are as a person is far more important than what you are as a basketball [Judo] player." --John Wooden 1910-2010

"You should first try to negotiate nicely but you can be strong after there's resistance, and know, just like in judo, when to catch them." --Rusty Kanokogi, 2008, on negotiating.

Watched this morning the video together with my sensei who trained for some time under Okano.
We were both very inspired. :rolleyes:

Thanks for posting!

Some lovely stuff, given the 'poor quality'filming (the way it was in them days)still a good learning resource.
Note the gripping is ever changing but always seeking an opportunity to use to throw, not like the time wasting 'grip fighting' of today!

Hope lots on here learn from it and pass on to others, thanks for posting.
