Yama Arashi (山嵐, "mountain storm") is one of the preserved throwing techniques, Habukareta Waza, of Judo. It belonged to the fifth group, Dai Gokyo, of the 1895 Gokyo no Waza lists. It is categorized as a hand throwing technique, Te-waza. It rarely occurs in competition or randori.
Danzan Ryu's version looks more like Osoto Gari, whereas in Judo, it almost looks like a thigh sweeping throw. Since it is categorized as a hand technique, the technique must have been thought of being primarily executed by tori's arms.
