Sode tsurikomi goshi
- Born:1 July 1951 (69 years)
Sode tsuri komi goshi is an incredibly popular throw which has evolved somewhat since leg grabs and double pistol grip were banned. The next incarnation of Sode came as a single arm pressing up, with the body rotating inwards and simultaneously taking control of the leg with the free arm. Although this method was far from new, it got new life as athletes sought an underused, effective, and still legal way to perform Sode. The top experts are Hifumi Abe and Sagi Muki.
