Short Description Right Outside Wrist Reverse

Sono Ichi (No. 1) Migi Omote Gyaku (Right Outside Wrist Reverse)

The Uke grabs your right lapel with his left hand. Cover this gently with your right hand. Come up onto the ball of your right foot and twist your hips in anti-clockwise towards the Uke and at the same time, drop your hips. This is to A: protect the groin and B: enter into a position to take the Ukes hand off your lapel. Grab the Ukes hand at the same time. Rise from the hips and use the push-up with your forearm under the Ukes arm to take the Ukes hand from your lapel. Change over to the other foot and raise onto the ball, again, to protect the groin (this is kind of a twisting motion). Pass the fingers of the left hand across the Ukes eyes as Metsubushi, and at the same time, twist the Ukes wrist up. Grip the Ukes left hand with both hands now in preperation of Omote Gyaku. Keep your elbows tucked in. Step back and around with the right leg and use the elbows as an axis to throw the Uke with a diagonal cutting motion (Kesa Giri). Keep hold of the Ukes wrist after the throw and maintain Zanshin.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
