Kuzure kami shiho gatame
|Kuzure kami shiho gatame|
|English||Broken upper four-quarter hold-down|
Technique description 
Executing the Kuzure-kami-shiho-gatame is similar to Kami shiho gatame, which involves pinning the opponent's arms to his or her side, typically by grabbing the opponent's belt and using the arms to press the arms of the opponent inwards. The difference between the two is instead of one or both arms of the opponent being pinned to the side, they are controlled for instance by pinning them in between an upper arm and a knee. Thus the 'broken' attribute for which the technique is named.
In The Canon Of Judo, Kyuzo Mifune states that tori should stay on his toes with knees off the mat.
