Description of Osoto gari
This throw is achieved by stepping to the opponent's side while pulling the sleeve of the same side outwards and downwards- and the other side of his gi backwards and outwards thus shifting his balance to only one leg. At this stage all that is needed is a swift sweep of the leg (at the lower calf/heel) while continuing the motion of the hands. Note that the first step should take the initiator of the throw behind the line of his opponent's legs- otherwise he would be as likely to be thrown as his opponent- strength and weight will become heavier factors.
