Soto-kaiten-nage

"Spinning throw" or "wheel throw" with outside entry.

In the outside-entry form tori stays in front of uke. In a characteristic movement, tori leads uke down making a pendulum movement with the hand while turning the hip.

We practise a form where uke's hand is kept on waist level for the throw, both in omote and ura. It is not lifted or overstretched as many traditional aikido schools teach it.

A comprehensive collection of instructive videos is available under Media > Basic Forms.
