Tsuri Goshi is not Uki GoshiLike the title says, Tsuri Goshi is a seriously misunderstood judo throw. It is so misunderstood that it is often written off a not worth practising because it is just Uki Goshi whilst grabbing the belt.

As a younger Judo student, I was convinced that the only reason why this throw was separated out from the other Goshi's is that you have the ability to capture the arm when you do it. That is going over the Uke's arm and grabbing the belt instead of going under Uke's arm to put your arm around the waist.
Then I discovered that you could do this throw under the arm as well and not capture Uke's arm. When I asked, "so if you can do the throw under Uke's arm how is it different from Uki Goshi?" I was met with blank stares.
