  1. Koga, an exceptional player of the highest quailty. I teach throws in 3 stages, entry, execution + finish. Most players are shallow on entry not fully committed on execution, and finish the technique too early ie do not spot the throw + drive through finish. Koga manages to completely satisify all three stages+ always spots the finish so burying his opponent through the mat. A truly classic player of exceptional flair + calabar.
