Ko-soto-gake (Small Outside Hook)
Unlike Ko-soto-gari where tori's leg is reaped, in Ko-soto-gake, the leg is blocked and tori is pushed or driven backward. Often done as a preparatory move for many hip and shoulder throws. When attempted, it provokes uke to lean forward. Also effective as a counter for O-soto-gari. Ko-soto-gake is countered by Uchi-mata or O-uchi-gari.
