|English||Big outer reap counter|
Osoto Gaeshi (大外返) is one of the techniques adopted by the Kodokan into their Shinmeisho No Waza (newly accepted techniques) list. It is categorized as a foot technique, Ashi-waza. It is essentially a counter throw or reversal for Osoto gari.
As the opponent steps in to attempt an Osoto Gari, the tori defends himself by drawing back his trailing foot, and twist his own torso, in doing so cutting down the uke using the same throw.
