Re: My Jiu Waza Needs Help

You have "paralysis by analysis", Tyler.

That comes from being too attached to a sucessful outcome. The great thing about Jiyu Waza and randori is that if you whiff one, you just say, "Okay, next." And move on.

IMHO, the best thing you could do for yourself is decide to mess a few up on purpose. You'll be surprised how well it will go from there. Next, try using just one technique (like kote gaeshi) then move on to one or two others you really like.

Uke will always let you get away with it, so you have nothing to lose!
