Judo Gokyo is for all those who want to learn, develop or teach the 40 basic techniques of judo.

Whether you are a beginner or a black belt, you always want to make every effort to improve your style : style reflects much better than the result, the value of judoka.

To improve his technique, the practitioner must, from the white belt onwards, undergo an intensive observation of the best stylists. Then, the practitioner tries to imitate, interpret images that his memory has been able to record : thousands of rehearsals will be necessary to acquire these automatic moves.

Judo Gokyo has 2 operating modes :

Great reference of core judo

As an experienced judoka, I can appreciate having the gokyo displayed so well. The preparatory steps before the entry are crucial for applying the kuzushi (off balancing), that will make the throw effortless. These 40 throws are the core throws, arranged as the founder of judo (Jigoro Kano), arranged them. This is a great guide, but to learn judo you need a good instructor, good partners, and the discipline and resolve to stay the course.
Judo means "the gentle Way", with "Way" understood to mean Tao, as in Chinese Taoism, ("Do" in Japanese). Lessons learned in judo have a transfer value to everything else in life. Enjoy.


Crash problem

Great program that is faulty at the moment as it crashes every 20 seconds or so, even if you aren't viewing a technique. This problem needs to be fixed as it makes it nearly impossible to view any technique.


App crashes! :(

This is a great app to remember basics. CONS- would be great if I can stop or pause the vid before it finishes and the vid crashes after watching 1 technique! Gotta fix this guys. If it
Wasn't because of the app crashing I would give it 5 starts otherwise only getting 3... Hope the creators get on this issue Asap...
