Counter and defence to Seoinage

Defence for this throw is the same as for the hip throws. Snatch your right arm and shoulder back. In the counter throw where the attacker is already in position for the throw let go with your left hand and encircle the opponents waist. As you stop the movement give slightly in at the waist. Then thrust the hips out strongly lifting the attacker up in the air. To make sure that your opponent doesn't come down on his feet again, continue the push forward with your hips until his legs are out almost straight. Then, pivot round to your left and drop him to the mat. It will sometimes be necessary to drop a little to the mat to finish off the throw. Take care not to use too much force in practising.
