Nage-waza (throwing technique):
Continuing on the side sacrifice technique (yoko sutemi waza) theme from last class, yoko guruma (side wheel) was reviewed and yoko otoshi (side drop), uki waza (floating technique), and tani otoshi (valley drop) were demonstrated.
While these techniques may look similar, attention was paid to the mechanics of throw direction. What’s the difference? See the video below.
