Ko-soto-gake (minor outer prop)

| Print this page |

Similar to ko-soto-gari, ko-soto-gake - the minor outer prop - involves stepping to the outside when a punch or weapon comes in, then controlling the outstretched arm with the blocking hand. However, unlike ko-soto-gari, you then grab the attacker's hair with your other hand and pull back their head. When you have their balance, you stamp on the back of the knee to make them fall over. If the attacker has no hair, you can use their nose or eye socket instead.

Ko-soto-gake is a quick technique and since it involves control of the attacking arm, is useful for weapon defences.

Note, ko-soto-gake in Jitsu is quite different to the sacrifice throw performed in judo.

Full list
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.
