Kata gatame video
Info about "Kata gatame video"
Kata gatame (shoulder hold) is one of the seven mat holds, Osaekomi-waza, of Kodokan Judo. It is also one of the 25 techniques of Danzan Ryu’s constriction arts, Shimete, list. In grappling terms, it is categorized as a side control hold. In Judo it is primarily a hold down as to submit a stronger larger person from this position is very difficult albeit possible.
A Judoka should use it to exhaust an opponent before assuming the mount and then from that position arm bar or choke. Bas Rutten the famous MMA exponent used the arm triangle choke version but again he was very strong and his opponents were a similar weight. Brock Lesnar submitted Shane Carwin via arm triangle at UFC 116 for the Heavyweight Championship.
Can be thought of as a variation of Kesa gatame, often employed when the Uke (person being pined) gives the Tori (person pinning) trouble in securing the sleeve of the arm. If the Uke’s arm is left unencumbered it can be used in various ways to break the Tori’s pin control. The Tori will compensate by using his head and shoulder to press the Uke’s arm up against the Uke’s own head/neck in an effort to control the Uke’s arm movement. The Tori should be up on at least one knee, keeping the knee as close to the Uke’s body as possible. The Tori’s other leg can be outstretched and used in an effort to provide adequate leverage and forward pressure.
