There are a great deal of existing
myths in the judo world of how to
A lot of people really mix up
cognitive ability with technical
proficiency. You don’t have to be great
in order to be a great teacher.
You know how I know that? Well it’s
easy. Michael Jordan din NOT coach
himself. Somebody who was a lesser
athlete than he coached him. And
Tiger Woods did NOT coach himself.
All of the great ones has someone who
was “not-so-great” coach them.
So let me start by saying dispelling some
Myth #1: BEING AN OLYMPIC OR WORLD
CHAMPION MAKES YOU A GREAT TEACHER
Well, the truth is – is it DOES NOT!!
IT MAKES YOU A CELEBRITY (well, kinda)
If you look at ALL of our country’s World
and Olympic Medalist you will notice one
thing that they have in common.
Well, two things. One – they all had
coaches, and Two – very few of their coaches
were Olympic and/or World Medalists.
COACHING IS AN ART FORM – AND SO IS
THE ART OF BEING A DISCIPLINED ATHLETE.
Myth #2: THE AMOUNT OF IMPORTANCE
PLACED UPON UCHIKOMIS
Look, most of the moves that I do, I
can’t do an uchikomi for them. And most
moves that are perform LOOK NOTHING LIKE
Now, I started out doing uchikomis and a
lot of them, like we all did. But the
secrets of judo success ARE NOT inside
They are great, but uchikomis don’t win
matches. And I have proof of this. One
of my Judo students and my Brazilian Jiujitsu
Coach Master Lloyd Irvin won 2 National
Championships in Judo, he was the United
States Judo Federation International Coach
of the Year in 2001, and he is a World Brazilian
Jiujitsu Champion and people in Jiujitsu know
him as a judo expert.
But if you ask him
to do some pretty uchikomis, it ain’t gonna
happen. But if you ask him to put a match
together and create a Gold “Mettle” Plan
for success – well that for him is EASY!!
