Soto-makikomi () (outer wrap around throw)

This technique is a very powerful throw often used in competition, especially by heavy weights. It can be a combination or counter to Osoto Gari. For a right side throw, grab with the left hand on the opponent's right sleeve at the elbow. Pull strongly forward while entering close and raising your right arm up and over the opponent's right arm. Turning your back to the opponent pull him/her close so that your shoulder is very tight to your opponent's shoulder. Without letting go of the left hand and while maintaining good contact, place your right arm towards the ground in front of you and roll uke over your right hip as you twist to the left and roll onto the ground.
