NEFELI PAPADAKIS

I am throwing with a drop sode tsurikomi goshi (drop sode). When I catch both my opponents sleeves, I pull down on them to break my uke's posture. His natural reaction is to straighten back up, and once I feel him doing that I drop to both knees while turning my back to him and push his left arm across his body with my right. Once I'm in for the throw I pull both arms through to keep my uke on my back and turn hard to finish the throw looking at the ceiling.

In this video, I'm throwing my uke with my favorite throw, kouchi makikome. (tokui-waza in japanese is favorite technique) For this throw, I fake a seoi-nage to make my partner react defensively and shift their weight to lean back so I don't throw them. When I feel this reaction, I switch directions and hook their leg from the inside and drive into their chest to finish the throw. The power for this throw comes from my back leg, which helps me drive into my uke.
In this video, I'm throwing with tai-otoshi. With this throw, I have a standard grip and I finish the throw by pulling his sleeve across my body with my left hand as I turn and punch my right hand to the mat, otherwise known as "turning the wheel".


In this video, I am throwing with a modified version of tai-otoshi that I have learned it being called wrong leg tai otoshi or wrong leg taio. In this video, I use wrong leg taio from a same side behind the back, or sumi grip, to do wrong leg taio and as my opponent bails I transition to a rolling choke in ne waza. (rolling choke = okuri-eri-jime).
