Tai-otoshi (body drop)

| Print this page |

To do this throw from stationary, you bend forward, stretching out your right leg, drawing the attacker over and causing him or her to fall heavily.

However, the usual entry is from a roundhouse punch. In this situation, you spin through 180° after blocking the punch, keeping the attacker’s arm held high to achieve the same effect.
