Sasae-tsurikomi-ashi (Propping and Drawing Ankle Throw)
Tori and Uke step forward each other to a distance of about 60cm Photo 1).
Movement 1: While stepping forward with his right foot, Uke attempts to grasp Tori in Migi-shizen-tai. Tori seizes this opportunity, grasps Uke in Migishizen-tai and pulls Uke to attempt to break the balance forward while taking one step backward by Tsugi-ashi from his left foot. Responding to Tori ’s pull, Uke takes one step forward by Tsugi-ashi from his right foot so as to try to protect his stability (Photo 2).
Movement 2: Tori takes again one step backward by Tsugi-ashi from his left foot. Uke takes one step forward by Tsugi-ashi from his right foot so as to try to protect his stability. During this sequence, Tori retreats his right foot diagonally backward to his right, as drawing an arc, without stopping from Tsugi-ashi movement and turns the toe inward while turning his body to his left (Photos 3, 4- ①② ).
Movement 3: When Uke responds Tori ’s pull and moves the right foot forward so as to try to protect the stability, Tori blocks Uke ’s leg above the right ankle with the sole of his left foot (Photos 5, 6), and throws Uke to his left side behind him by pulling largely with his left hand with the assistance of his right hand (Photos 7, 8, 9, 10, 11).
Tori stands on the right side toward Shomen and Uke rises to stand on the left side toward Shomen facing Tori in the proper distance. Then both Tori and Uke grasp in Hidari-shizen-tai to perform right “Sasae-tsurikomi-ashi ” in the same manner as before.
