Judo Lessons for Beginners : How to Do a Side Pin in Judo


On behalf of Expert Village my name is Richard
Acuna from Champion Martial Arts in Miami,
Florida, today we are showing you beginners
judo. Okay in this next clip we are going
to show you another pin which is part of ground
work and it’s a side pin it is called Yoko
shiho gatame and it shows like this. Again
my opponent is down on the ground and he is
facing up, the first I do before he moves
to any side is I come down with my chest and
seize him from moving from any side, my hand
or arm goes all the way underneath his legs,
securing him from wherever I can. Usually
it is the belt, or the pants or wherever I
can grab, and this side the same thing I’m
holding him from the lapel, my legs are extend
to the back to balance, and my head goes down,
I can even put my chin right against his ribs
like that. I can move to the sides also as
well, so for positioning.

  1. against the rules dude. Judo's a sport remember, not really a self defence (see Jitsu instead) and having been pinned using this, i can tell you it is kinda hard to get out of if u don't know how!

  2. All martial arts need to account for street fighting tactics. The modern ideal of ring martial arts is disabling a foe without causing enough damage to earn jail time

  3. problem with this is , the guy in blue both his hands are free , all he has to do is hit you in the eyes or twist your head

  4. To all the people that are like "Oh yeah, in real life….." If you are on concrete and you do any trip/throw, the guy is bleeding, broken and/or knocked out. There are mats in dojo's. As a personal story, I did judo for 5 years, and I now have random nosebleeds up to 10 times a week.
