Today ArtOfGrappling is finally going to live up to it’s name; we are featuring our first judo artist: Maria Catoni!

Maria is a graphic designer based in Brooklyn, NY and was a judoka throughout middle and high school. Infographics are one of her passions, as they allow her to help others better understand the world Check out Maria’s website here http://mariacatoni.com/judo-instructional-poster/.

When we asked Maria about how she came up with the design, Maria told us this:

 

The goal of the project was to create a step–by–step diagram of a judo technique that can be easily followed by learners of the sport. I broke the throw into eight steps rather than the usual three or four in order to capture the finer points of the movement. For reference, I used various instructional videos and photographs. This model can be extended to all other techniques in the sport. I chose Ippon Seoi Nage, as I fondly remember it for earning me my first Ippon in competition, but ideally I’d love to work with a current judoka to extend the series!
