    Purpose:

    "Otoshi" techniques

    have as a principle to "drop your COM (center of mass)" to throw your partner/opponent.

    Some of them are rarely taught, some of them are common but often poorly executed - therefore I try to create a Kata with those techniques. Kata (form) is a tool to teach, learn and practice techniques (waza) and principles (ri) and to blend them. I also want to have throws to all directions of unbalancing (happo no kuzushi, throwing circle) and to throw with right and left handed grip.
