|Beginning with the standard Judo grip, first you drive into the non-compliant opponent pushing him backward with your forward momentum. The opponent may stumble back or seek to push toward you.|
|The setup requires you to 'punch' the opponent and driving him forward with the right arm, whilst pulling back with your left ... not necessarily too far, but you're setting him up and confusing him so that it makes your throw easier.|
|This is where your Tsurite or 'lifting hand' is going to lift up the opponent's elbow similar to the 'Haiwan Uke' or the high level double forearm block in Won-hyo.|
|Kuzushi - or unbalancing the attacker. In the above photo, kuzushi is done by lifting the arm and dragging it forward.|
|That's the technique we're tacking on to preparatory stages of the 'throw'|
|That's more like it. In my book you throw the opponent either across the room or you throw him right at your feet. Once he's close by hold him tight so you know where he is! :-)|
