Technique description[edit]

To perform this throw, the practitioner will pull the opponent towards themselves, while blocking the foot to prevent the opponent from stepping, supporting his weight and regaining his balance. When this is done simultaneously with sweeping the opponent's foot backward it is called Harai Tsuri Komi Ashi. the action of the foot is done while pulling so they will also twist, causing the opponent to begin a rotation that, when offset by the foot sweep, will complete the throw.
