George Kirby’s Top 10 Jujitsu Techniques: Outer Rear Sweeping Throw

Want a really simple jujitsu throw?  This is it.

The outer rear sweeping throw is a simple, easy-to-execute jujitsu move that just about anyone can perform, which is why it’s one of George Kirby’s top 10 jujitsu techniques. Here’s what George Kirby, author of Jujitsu: Basic Techniques of the Gentle Art, had to say about this throw:

“As long as you get your body in the right place and position, it’s easy to learn and execute. It’s also easy to change from this technique to a variety of other more devastating techniques if you encounter resistance from your attacker.”

Jujitsu Technique No. 8: Outer Rear Sweeping Throw

Japanese Translation: OSOTO GARI

1) Assume a ready position facing your opponent.

2) Block his right punch outward and to your left with your left forearm. Step in slightly with your left foot to keep your balance.

3) Move your left foot to the outside of his right foot so that your left foot is parallel to or slightly behind his right foot but pointed opposite from his direction.

4) Your right hand reaches across and grabs your attacker’s left lapel to help push him off-balance as your leg comes up to sweep his right leg from behind.

5) Sweep his leg up, causing the attacker to fall backward. Be sure to lean forward to protect your own balance.

6) Drop your right knee into the side of his ribs for a finishing blow.
