Ne waza session with Steve Gawthorpe
Tonight at Wolverhampton Judo Club we has a guest instructor , his name is Steve Gawthorpe.
He is a red and white belt :O and his groundwork is seriously immense!
He spent an hour and half showing us some very nice techniques!
He is apparently gonna be coming to the club on a regular basis to help with the ground training , this is a great thing!!
Has anyone here ever trained with Steve?

Yes I've trained with him and he is a ne waza legend.
Me and Dickie taught a seminar alongside Steve Gawthorpe and
Ray Stevens focussing on Ne Waza to
British Judo Association Coaches.
Steve showed some awesome techniques.
Steve almost choked me out!! by accident of course.....

Out of interest, if I'm attending BJJ am I not learning ne waza by another name? Or is ne waza something quite different?
bjj's ground game is far more in depth than judo's .
I find I'm more "into" the ground game than the stand-up so I'm taking a break from judo at the minute to pursue bjj
