Ronda Rousey Takedown Study - Judo in MMA

At a time when Adult participation in Judo in the BJA  has fallen from 23,600 pre London 2012 to 19,900 post London 2012 I thought I’d post this excellent video of Ronda Rousey’s effective use of Judo in her MMA career. I’ve blogged before about what I think some Judo clubs need to do to improve Adult participation but I think this video speaks louder than words.


  1. Loved this video. Just posted it to your facebook but then saw you had put this up earlier in the day. I really like that ouchi/uchimata/ko ouchi combo! . And look at all those lovely leg grabs which are so effective.

  2. Shame that the numbers have dropped so much. Maybe the Commonwealth games will help.

  3. @Steve, lets hope it gets plenty of TV coverage and we win some medals
