Defence and counter to Taiotoshi

The thrower will try very strongly to break your balance to your right front corner. Do not let him do this and be prepared to snatch your right arm free from his sleeve grip. Stand upright with your right shoulder well back. There is a counter for tai-otoshi but it is extremely difficult to do against even an average tai-otoshi exponent. Be content to break the attacker's left hand grip and push him down face forward into the mat with your left knee. Once he has fallen forward, move in quickly for a groundwork technique.
