Nage-waza (throwing technique):
Continuing from last class, o-uchi gari (major inner reap) is often finished by grabbing the reaped leg to keep chest and hip contact between tori and uke as tori pitches forward. However in shiai (competition), leg grabs are now penalised.
A similar and shiai-legal variation is to place an “o-goshi” hand behind uke to block uke‘s hip so as to maintain contact between tori and uke while tori sacrifices forward balance. However, if uke steps out of the o-uchi gari, the “o-goshi” hand can then be used for a hip throw like o-goshi (major hip) or tsuri goshi (lifting hip).
