Sacrifice throws

| Print this page |

Sometimes, someone's attack is so powerful or quick that you find yourself caught by surprise and off-balance. Even those situations can be turned to your advantage.

Sacrifice throws (sutemi-waza) involve sacrificing your balance so that you can throw the attacker. Some are quite weak, such as uki-waza (floating technique), while others such as tomoe-nage (circle throw) can be very powerful.
