Darcel Yandzi, former European Champion and World medallist, is widely regarded as one of the world's leading technical coaches.

He currently works with the French national team and is one of three coaches for Teddy Riner, the record holding eight times World Champion and double Olympic Champion.

What makes Yandzi so special and unique is his amazing rhythm and movement, combined with a relaxed, yet explosive nature.

His judo is a mixture of feints, quick step movements and combinations. Yandzi's big techniques all work off of each other, with him able to effortlessly blend one throw into another.

He likes to train to music, trying different types of music, which provoke new ideas with his hip and foot movement.

Yandzi's Sasae tsurikomi ashi is the stuff of legend. He is still considered one of the all-time greatest exponents of this classic piece of Ashi waza, and his 9 part video playlist is not to be missed!

His Osoto gari gives a big insight into the style of coaching he does with Riner. Especially as Riner's Tokui waza is Osoto.

The judo of Yandzi will open your mind to the different movements and possibilities there are for each and every individual technique.

Studied in depth you will start to find ways to combine your biggest throws and how to incorporate new ones.

Darcel Yandzi is one of the most sought after coaches on the international circuit. Now for the first time Darcel is available to you as your personal coach on rhythm, movement and combinations. Enjoy his judo. It's a lot of fun!
