Hands down there is an endless number of way to practice and train for Judo. However, there are very few ways to do it correctly and most effectively. If you are an a Judo instructor then you know the dilemma between the amount of time you have to teach and the skills the student must learn.

Learning all the Judo individual throws one at a time is similar to learning the vocabulary of a foreign language, the difficult part is to put the words together in the correct order to make fluent sentences. Sooner or later the judo player has to learn to combine techniques in order to be effective in contest. There is an old saying in judo that one technique mastered is worth a thousand sampled, which remains as true today as it ever was, but five or six techniques mastered is even better.
