How to Teach Osoto-Gari

To throw with Osoto-Gari first you must break your opponent’s balance (Kuzushi) and this can be done by stepping wide with your support leg and at the same time pull uke off balance over the leg you will attack.

Next, swing your attack leg past uke, then bring it back sharply to reap uke’s leg out from underneath him, driving uke backwards using your grip on the collar and sleeve.
