How to throw with O-soto-gari

  1. Step wide with your support leg, to pull uke’s weight onto the side you are going to attack.
  2. Swing your attack leg past uke’s legs, then bring your leg back fast to reap out uke’s leg from under him.
  3. Control the head and pull down on the sleeve, to power the throw backwards.
