Kosoto Gake(小外掛?), sometimes known as "minor outer hook", the English translation, is one of the original 40 throws of Judo as developed by Jigoro Kano. It belongs to the third group, Sankyo, of the traditional throwing list, Gokyo (no waza), of Kodokan Judo. It is also part of the current 67 Throws of Kodokan Judo. It is classified as a foot technique, Ashi-waza. It is often used as a counter-throw to tai-otoshi, after having stepped over the leg. To perform the technique, the tori situates themselves to the side of the uke and reaches around their back to grip their face or neck; the tori then moves backwards, forcing the uke off balance. The inside leg is reaped by pushing the back of the knee with the closest foot.
