Sumi-otoshi

"Corner drop": tori influences uke's center in a way that makes uke tip over one side.

This throw is usually applied to the attack (gyaku-hanmi) katate-dori.

Tori searches the contact to uke's elbow with his inner hand. A spiralling movement influences uke's center so that he tips over to the side. Tori sometimes kneels down to increase the effect.
