Tomoe-nage (circle throw)

| Print this page |

A sacrifice throw commonly seen on Star Trek, hence its nickname — the Captain Kirk throw. As the attacker comes in, you fall backwards, holding on to his gi and placing your foot on his stomach. When you land on your back, you continue to draw the attacker forwards and over you: the unkind can extend their legs after the midpoint of the attacker's circular path over them to propel the attacker into orbit.

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.
