O-soto-gari (major outer reap)

| Print this page |

One of the first throws taught in Jitsu, o-soto-gari is effective against punches, and is useful in Vs. After blocking the punch, step through with the left foot and past the line of the punch. Then bring your right leg through and up, before striking back with your leg to sweep away the attacker's leg, using your right hand to push back his head and so take him off balance.

Common mistakes: Trying to do those same moves against a left-sided punch! Don't forget to practise both kinds…

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.
