Hip Throw

Basic takedown/throw from standing.

Starting from standing take grips on the opponent. Assuming the left makes a grip at the wrist on the gi, the right makes a grip behind the triceps. To move in, flare your own arms up at the elbow to clear the opponents arms and slip the right arm behind the opponents back and sidle up to them. Keep the left grip, stepping behind your opponent with your right foot, right hand around the back. Once you’ve got position, step your left foot in front and inside your opponents left foot. Follow through with the right foot inside and in front of your opponents. Standing in front of your opponent with the grips still held push your hips passed your opponents and lift them up, then turn to throw them.
