Defence and counter to Tomoenage

There is no satisfactory counter-throw for a stomach throw. To defend against it, firstly do not let the attacker put his foot in your stomach. As he sinks to the mat, sweep aside his rising foot with your left hand so that his foot shoots out past the side of your body. If he has managed to place his foot in position do not let him pull you forward, sink immediately to the mat keeping your head and shoulder braced back. If the attacker should manage to get you actually in the air, try to make a cartwheel and twist so as to land on your feet or on one side.
