Judo in MMA - Rhonda Rousey vs Meisha Tate II Highlights

Before the break we talked about when being pushed, not to push back, but to "give way" and use your opponents forward momentum for your own throw. I did not see the Rousey - Tate fight but I wanted to share this highlight as an example of turning into a throw off a push. Even if you don't care for mma, share this clip with your judo kids to give them a visual of what we mean by not pushing back when being pushed. See Ronda Rousey execute an uchimata (47 sec) and harai-goshi (54? sec) almost effortlessly off a hug/tackle by Tate.
