Nage Waza

Here is a chart of the throwing techniques of judo. I can't really attest for the accuracy of the english translations or for the breakdown by group, but I think it's probably fairly accuarate. A nice PDF version can be found here. For more information on the meaning of the various categories on the chart, check out Kodokan Judo, by Jigoro Kano (the man, himself).
