Methode of the sword
Methode of the body
In the basic technique, as the opponent strikes with his right hand, your right foot slides to the right side, and your left foot takes a large sweeping step back. At the same time, your left hand comes down on his right hand, and your right hand cuts down at an angle from his shoulder grasping his wrist. As you twist your hips, the left hands grasps your opponent's and you advance your left leg forward. The hand raised as if lifting a sword straight up, the body is turned , and the throw is accomplished by cutting down as with the sword. The left leg is swung alongside his body. Do not throw by withdrawing the right foot.
