Dreams of Tai Otoshi

The 'body drop' is in my head. Last night I watched videos of the body drop throw for about an hour.

As I lay my head to sleep a line of Japanese gentlemen attacked, and they received a tai otoshi. Then my teacher Russell Waddell Sensei appeared and I tai otoshied him over and over.

I woke up at 2:20 am and felt a little late night brain fry. "Damn, I need to relax on the Judo a bit" I thought to myself. I hit the can, then went back to bed.

Kyle Sloan Sensei appeared in the cloud of dreams and received the brunt of my tai otoshi fury. Perhaps because he is from Oklahoma he received the worst of the throws. Then Ota Sensei my old Daito Ryu teacher. Then a hazy cloud of others....

Dear world,

My brain is preparing to tai otoshi you. You have been warned.


  1. your Tai-otoshi is no match for my Cow-Fu!


  3. I can empathize, in general, but also in particular regard to tai otoshi. It's greatly intrigued me for a while now, but I have much to learn about it...

  4. Thank god I'm not the only one who does this... although it usually keeps me awake instead of haunting my dreams.
