I'm starting in the judo
You're not starting with this throw in judo as it is not in the list of 100 recognized techniques.
It is in sumo as sukuinage / 'beltless arm throw' in English. Sometimes I do it in judo for fun to show how sumo techniques work. It's usually a surprise to judoka, but it's also risky to get the underhook. Surprisingly strong, subtle move, as seen in your video.
https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/tv/sumo/techniques/ look for sukuinage, good views of it.
BTW there is a 'sukuinage' in judo, different technique
I agree, they are pretty much the same technique, thank you dear friend!
No, they are meant to be very different. Judo sukuinage is a lift from behind as uke enters but hasn't taken tori's balance, leaving himself vulnerable to a strong lift.
Also, you can perform the sumo sukuinage without the underhook, just using the collar of the gi. Fun to try, I'm just not sure that anyone teaching judo will appreciate it for what it is. Particularly from a beginner supposedly learning judo.
Okay, I understood what you said, and I'm not going to ask my teacher to teach me this, I was just curious to know the name of the technique, I'm in the first judo classes, private tutoring, he's teaching me techniques for now osotogati, ouchigari, kouchigari, and I do not want to skip steps in learning, thanks for the tips!
