Tai Otoshi: How to reduce the risk of knee injuries ••••••••••••••••••••••• Collaborative post by @judophysio and @doctor kickass . In the Art of Judo the ultimate goal is to unbalance an opponent so that they land on their back. While many injuries could occur due to the traumatic nature of the sport the knee statistically appears to be an area with a higher likelihood of injury. . While most most knee injuries occur to the defender there is one throw that may predispose the attacker to injure their own knee: Tai Otoshi. . “The risk of injury by attempting tai-otoshi appeared to be higher when the judoka’s knee joint was in a full or almost full extension position in the preparatory phase (Koshida 2010).” . ❌”Traditional” Tai Otoshi: Point of kuzushi and then direct contact of tori and uke with near full knee extension. ✅Alternative Tai Otoshi: Judo Silver medalist, @judosilencer, shoes a variation that may reduce the risk
