Welcome to the Throwdown!

Welcome to the Throwdown!

Welcome to the latest Higashi Brand venture: the Throwdown. After the success of our monthly email blast, we are thrilled to welcome you to our dedicated judo blog, your new go-to hub for everything judo, martial arts, and more. Whether you're a seasoned practitioner, a beginner just stepping onto the mats, or someone curious about the art, you've found the right place. We want to create a community that answers burning questions, shares the latest martial arts news, and grows together.

Here's what's coming:

In-Depth Articles and Guides

Dive into upcoming, comprehensive articles covering a wide range of topics, from what to wear to your first class to competition tips and strategies.

Training Tips and Tutorials

Not every topic is enough to make a YouTube video. Explore our written musings on judo, BJJ, and more.

Community Spotlights

Part of learning is learning from those doing their best to compete and succeed every time they step onto the tatami. Catch interviews with collaborators, coaches, and other martial arts masters here.

Martial Arts News and Updates

The judo world changes all the time. Thanks to a JudoTV partnership, I'll do my best to keep you updated on tournaments, rule changes, and other marital arts news.

Product Reviews and Recommendations

The first step in any dojo is finding out what gear works best for you. While I hope my gear will eventually become a top choice, I'll share the brands and companies I trusted when shooting my shot at the Olympics.

Health and Fitness

Training nothing but martial arts is a good start, but that will only take you so far. All the best athletes weight train, diet, and push their body to peak physical condition. Read advice from myself and top athletes to take your martial arts game to the next level.

Thank you for stopping by! We're excited to have you here and can't wait to see how we can continue to improve content and community together this year.

See you on the mats,
