Judo Throw # 19 – Kuchiki Taoshi – One Hand Drop


To begin tori and uki start in kumi kata position.  On the right side, tori steps in between uki legs with right foot.  Tori then quickly grabs uki’s right leg.  He can grab the uki’s leg with either the right hand on the inside or on the outside with the left hand.  I prefer the left hand on the outside.  Lift the left leg and push him backwards trapping the left leg.  To make this throw even more effective in combat, the tori can sweep the uki’s left leg at the same time he grabs the right leg driving the uki straight down in to the ground.  This can be another tough throw to take so tori should pull up on the uki’s gi to help break his fall.
