Tai-otoshi (Body Drop)

This very effective throw is characterized by pushing uke (rather than pulling) over tori's blocking leg. Classic combinations include Tai-otoshi followed by De-ashi-barai, O-uchi-gari, Uchi-mata or Ko-uchi-gari. Also a failed attempt for Uchi-mata can be effectively salvaged by Tai-otoshi. Tai-otoshi is difficult to counter but Yoko-gake and De-ashi-barai work best.
