    Just a few thoughts on this... the longer I've been in Judo, the more I've moved away from the idea of combinations. I think it's more effective to think in terms of a "group" of throws. Phil Porter calls it an "integrated attack system"... which is as good a name as any.

    In brief, instead of working on combinations... work on your one, main technique... now, what's the most common counter? How can you continue an attack from that counter?

    Example: Osotogari, common counter, step back with leg being attacked: continuing attack - reach his knee with your attacking foot and turn your hips - Ashi Guruma.

    Another common defense, stepping the non-attacked leg back and uke turning 90 degrees (wanting to apply his own Osotogari): continuing attack: put the attacking leg down, reach across with your *other* leg ... Nidan Kosotogari. And so on.

    So you should end up with one throw - and a "circle" of throws around it that work for all common defenses. Each individual one is, of course, the traditional "combination"... but it's the way that you think about it that makes this a tad more effective. It also leads you invariably to necessary technique combinations.

    Just my 2 cents worth...
