Kosoto gari - Minor outer clip
Background of Kosoto gari
This throw requires precise timing from its user- as there is a small window of opportunity to use it in each step the opponent takes. The technique doesn't require a lot of power from its user as the opponent will find it difficult to resist if used with the right timing.
Description of Kosoto gari
To perform this throw correctly the user of the technique moves forwards- forcing his opponent to move backwards. While the opponent steps backwards the user times his steps- and swats his leg aside while it is still in the air (using the leg further away from the opponent). As the user swats the opponent's leg further away from himself- he pulls the opponent by his hands to the other side- causing him to lose balance.
