Nage-waza (throwing technique):
Ushiro goshi, the rear hip throw, was demonstrated again. First, the canonical approach was demonstrated as uke enters with a hip throw, and tori counters uke. Note that tori is grabbing around uke‘s waist and is then lifting uke with the hip being the focal point of contact; moreover, tori intercepts uke at an angle before uke can fully turn her/his back and commit to their throw attempt.
The variation on ushiro goshi is in the situation where uke has fully turned his/her back while committing to a throw attempt was also demonstrated. In this case, tori lifts uke and then brushes uke‘s legs away to the side; in the right-hand situation, tori‘s right leg will be brushing uke‘s legs away to the left. While not exactly what was demonstrated, the below gif shows a similar leg-action follow through. As the Kodokan video notes, this is still a variation of ushiro goshi.
Ne-waza (ground technique)
The “scissor guard” was demonstrated. This form of “open” guard helps keep off forward pressure from uke, and is conducive to reversals and other manipulations of uke.
