In right Ouchi Gari, tori reaps uke's left leg with his right leg from the inside while pulling uke down. In competition, the reaping action of the classical variation is sometimes replaced with a hooking or lifting motion, and the left hand can be used to lift or block uke's other leg while reaping the other.
