Blue Belt Nage

We introduce additional sets of both Uprooting Nage and Rooting Nage in this belt curriculum. The throws are generally more challenging than those you explored as an Orange Belt. As before, take your time learning the throws and do not put your Uke in jeopardy while you are learning these throwing skills. As always, both you and your Uke must feel comfortable with a throw before you begin practicing in earnest.

You should now not only know how to do all of the throws you have learned, but you should also begin to incorporate these throws when the opportunity to use them presents itself during Randori or Ad Hoc drills and practices. You will ultimately want these skills, like all others you learn, to become second nature so that you can call upon them without any conscious thought. This can only be achieved by using the skills so often that they become part of your subconscious thought processes, much like walking or rising from a chair.
