Kata-hiza-seoi-nage (single knee shoulder throw)

| Print this page |

Essentially a variant of ippon-seoi-nage, kata-hiza-seoi-nage - also known as “drop knee seoi-nage” – is also more powerful and much preferred by taller Jitsuka. The entry to the throw and positioning remain the same, but as you are about to draw uke's weight forwards and perform the throw, you step backwards with your right foot, dropping your knee to the floor. Uke then hits the floor far harder and quicker than with ippon-seoi-nage.

It's much preferred by taller Jitsuka because it doesn't require the legs to be bent as much when performed on smaller Jitsuka as makes the throw possible on much smaller Jitsuka.

Here is a list of most of the techniques you'll need to know for Jitsu and at what level you'll meet them. The list is not completely definitive because modern Judo is creating many more throws, some of which Jitsuka are adapting for their own use.
