Terminology:

Osae Komi = Hold down. This is called when you are holding your partner down on their back.
Toketa = Hold down broken/escaped. This is called when your partner escapes from your hold.
Waza = Technique. This is a generic term used to describe a group of techniques too. So Tachi Waza is standing techniques (throws), Ne Waza is ground techniques (hold downs for example).

The founder of Judo is Jigoro Kano (Kano Jigoro as the Japanese would say. Kano is his surname).
