Shohei Ono - Mr Versatility
Most people know Shohei Ono (JPN) as an uchimata man. Some may also know he has a devastating osoto-gari. But in Astana, he used no fewer than nine different techniques on his way to the final, which goes to show how versatile he has grown to become.Posted by JudoCrazy on Monday, November 9, 2015
Shohei Ono is synonymous with uchimata and to a lesser extent, osoto-gari. But did you know he can do all manner of hip throws including sode-tsuri-komi-goshi. I bet you didn't know he could do morote-seoi-nage. And the biggest surprise of all, ura-nage! In Astana, Ono proved to be Mr Versatility.
