Illustration of Ashi-Guruma throw
|Successive techniques||Juji gatame|
Ashi guruma (ja. 足車?) is a throw in judo. It is one of the original 40 throws of Judo as developed by Kano Jigoro. It belongs to the third group of the traditional throwing list in the Gokyo no waza of the Kodokan Judo. It is also included in the current 67 Throws of Kodokan Judo and is classified as a foot technique (ashiwaza).
Similar to Osoto Gari, but instead of trapping the uke's leading leg and throwing him directly to his rear, Ashi Guruma is executed by trapping the uke's trailing leg to make his torso twist and fall about an oblique axis formed by the tori's tripping leg.
