Hari-Tsuri-Komi-Ashi: On Top Judo Throw

I really like this version of Hari-Tsuri-Komi-Ashi. The traditional version is much harder to execute because it relies, more or less on Uke running backwards, backing away or at the very least backing up some whilst Tori is in very close range, to pull it off.

This is great if your partner is determined to fight an in-close contest. Which is not something that I see too many players do and for good reason.

Any player who plays an in-close contest is setting themselves for potentially easy Judo throws like Ko-Soto-Gake or a variation of Ko-Uchi-Gari. It is very hard to defend when you are in-close.

The video below gives a much better alternative for Hari-Tsuri-Komi-Ashi that means you are not reliant on your Uke's in-close game.

Make sure you pay attention to the timeing. Your sweeping foot should begin the sweep just before Uke starts to step backwards:
  • If you start the sweep too soon you end up faoceing uke's foot to the grond and stopping any futher movement.

  • If you start your sweep after Uke has started stepping backwards you have waited too long and you will get no lift out of Uke.
