Maje Roll

The Maje Roll is a technique taught by Maje Omagbaluwaje, a 3x Olympian from Nigeria. If you're ever in Chicago, check out his gym, Evolution Dojo.

This easy, fast, and underrated technique will definitely catch your opponents off guard in randori and in tournaments.

When your opponent is in turtle:

  1. grab with one hand on the collar (behind the neck)
  2. other hand comes under the arm pit and grabs the FAR lapel
  3. collar hand pushed, lapel hand pulls - put their far shoulder to the ground
  4. rotate around their head until you end in Kami Shiho Gatame
