Soto makikomi video
Info about "Soto makikomi video"
Soto maki komi is the ‘basic’ makikomi technique and demonstrates the maki komi movement in it’s purest form.
Maki komi is a winding movement that is characterised by the tsurite not being used, instead the arm is over the top of the ukes head. Tori then pulls round with the hikite and winds round and to the floor in a sutemi action. Makikomi is categorised as a yoko sutemi waza, but is allowed in junior contest as the start of the throw is not initiated by the sutemi action. Close contact ensures an immediate transition into ne waza with uke crushed to the floor underneath tori.
In soto maki komi, the tori’s leg blocks ukes leg from moving and potentially escaping the technique. This can lift off the floor, but as soon as it sweeps it would become harai makikomi.
