O-uchi gari (major inner reap) into uchi mata (inner thigh) was demonstrated. A good video of Yasuhiro Yamashita, 4-time gold medallist at the World Championships and Olympic gold medallist (and purportedly undefeated in competition), is shown below with him demonstrating the combination. In this video, Yamashita emphasises the hand motion particularly in the sleeve grip (hiki te, pulling hand) in forcing uke‘s head down. This complements the leg action of uchi mata because uke‘s head position inversely follows his/her leg position, like a see-saw.
