    Not sure if this has been posted here yet. The video featuring Toshikazu Okada (79 years, 6.dan). He is demonstrating newaza techniques based on the legendary newaza system of Tsunetane Oda-sensei. Enjoy Smile

    edit1: fixed some typos
    edit2: added follow-up video



    Bonus: this video contains some history of Tsunetane Oda, very interesting!

    Ry guy,

    You have an excellent eye ... but a bit of background here.

    I had the good fortune to train several times with Okada-sensei at the Kodokan, and once he was a guest at our dojo here in SoCal.  The ex-pat American uke in the first video is a friend of mine.  The producer of the second video is a local California sensei of some note ... you will notice the "copyright 2007" note at the beginning of that video.

    A few years ago, sadly, Okada-sensei's health failed, and I have not seen him on the mat since that time.

    These videos were produced ... and sold ... just prior to that sad event.  Certainly Okada-sensei was enthusiastic about passing along what knowledge he had,  and i do not want to become too personal, but as an aging pensioner he also did not mind getting a few bucks for each copy of the DVD sold.  YouTube as usual shortcuts that.

    So posting it here ... do you understand my meaning?  Unless you know that the poster on YouTube has sensei's permission, maybe a good response is to ask YouTube to take the video down.

    That's unfortunate, I'm sorry to hear that. I did not know about this :/

    If there is copyright involved then Youtube should take it down I guess, but I have no knowledge of the legality of this content. I have however ordered some DVD's of Okada-sensei, so he will get my bucks Smile

    This uke you are refering to, is that the one starting from 18:35 in the first video? I believe this was the guy I had to pleasure of doing randori with during my stay at the kodokan in 2012. He sounded american, looks just like him, seemed like a great guy, I was a green belt at the time, so he went easy on me :p hehe

    Not sure if it was the same "Athens Judo" who posted this video, but maybe it's the same guy.

    What happened was, I asked a physician member of our dojo to come up with a pecha-kucha slideshow ... ten common judo injuries and their cause, recognition, first aid and recovery. Neil did a great job, and we posted it to the YDK web site.

    A few months later I saw posted on the old JF a link to that exact slide show ... but in Greek! Well, had he asked he was welcome to that one as freeware ... but it's awfully damned cheeky if you ask me.

    below the video there's a 'flag' icon - used to report that video to the Youtube police, I guess. I don't know whether they try to verify copyright, it sounds like an impossible task.
