Uki-Otoshi – see how to do this judo throw


Uki-Otoshi is all about understanding Kuzushi and how to break your partner’s balance. It is always easier to throw uke if they are off balance – and Kuzushi should be your first aim of every judo throw you try.

  1. Take a step backwards and pull uke forwards and off balance.
  2. Drop quickly to one knee to create a gap between you and your partner.
  3. Uke will now fall into the gap you have created. Use your hands to direct the throw.
