Moti Nativ

motiDC Judo is very fortunate to have a special guest instructor visiting us on Tuesday February 10th to explore Judo and Self Defense. This class session is open to all judoka and other martial artists and we hope you will consider joining us for this special event.

Sensei Moti Nativ comes from Tel Aviv Israel with a deep background in Judo and other martial arts of self-defense. He is a retired Israeli Defense Force colonel. As a young Judo competitor, Sensei Moti earned his Nidan. He continued his studies in Judo and other martial arts with a focus on self-defense applications. He deepened his knowledge of the biomechanics of the body through study of the Feldenkrais Method.

Sensei Moti published a book dedicated to Hadaka Jime. Written during World War II by Moshe Feldenkrais for the British Home Guard, it dedicates the whole work to ways and means to finish with one technique: Hadaka Jime. It is an excellent work on applied Judo and how to develop one’s Judo around a single tokui waza. He also wrote the forward to Higher Judo also by Feldenkrais.Higher_Judo_2_1024x1024
